Hard


I miss them so badly it hurts. When will the pain go away? We've been home 3 days and I am still a wreck. I can't even seem to function. My head doesn't stop pounding, my stomach is still in knots, and the tears come at all times of the day.

It is just so so hard.

I would give anything to be back there holding them right now.
I hated having to say goodbye, not knowing how long it would be before we come back for them.
6 months, 12 months, 18 months or even longer???
They are our children and only the Lord knows when we will be with them again.


Please pray with me that it will be soon.

While we often never understand, we know that His timing is perfect. I am praying for all 8 of you in the weeks and months to come. I know He will continue to do an amazing work through this journey and look forward to the day that your precious son and daughter are home!

That is perhaps the most beautiful photo I've ever seen. It makes me smile and it makes me sad all at the same time. Of course, I will pray for you, for your children, and for you to be forever reunited very soon.

It's the hardest part about Ethiopian adoption right now-meeting them, loving them, seeing in their eyes that they want to leave right then and there with you and having to walk away without them. It's hard. No way around it. The hardest part for me is not necessarily for myself, but for our daughter who doesn't get regular updates like we do and who doesn't have a busy life to keep her distracted or help pass the time. I know each day she wonders, when will they come back. I just hope she's not wondering IF we will come back. She's seen most of her friends go home at this point, so I hope and pray she knows we are doing everything we can to get back to her.

I do understand the ache you discribed. It's like living in a fog. I have to remind myself that life goes on here and I need to embrace every minute while we wait (which I've failed miserably at this week).

Hang in there.

UGH! This is what I cannot imagine handling. Yet, one day I will have to. May God give me the strength to do that part. May He cover you in your final waiting. May you reunite for your family FOREVER. SOON!!!!!
