.Not Too Much to Say.

I don't have much to say. But have been emailed a few times asking where we are at now. Our dossier has been completed (yay!!) now for going on two weeks, but we are still waiting for God's timing as to having the finances needed to mail it into AWAA.

I'm not going to lie, this wait is hard. I cried 3 times this weekend when people asked me what was going on in our adoption process. {bleck} It's hard waking up in the morning knowing that the only thing holding up this process to get our beautiful boy home is money. It doesn't seem right. And yet I look at all of the figures that are requested, and I get it. I get why it has to be so expensive. It just really, really stinks.

I wish I could share a photo, here on my blog, of this boy who has captured our hearts. It was such a joy last weekend to be able to share his photo with people, and have {most} everyone respond so enthusiastically. There really is something so special about Jamesy. I cannot wait to see the plans that God has for him....for us.

I know God is refining us and teaching us during this wait. I know God is caring for Jamesy better than I ever, ever could. My heart just hurts. No one said this would be easy, and this is the road we have chosen, I get that.

And you know what I would do it all over again.

As soon as I am cheek to cheek holding Jamesy, the pieces will all fit together, and it will be so, so worth it.

Until then....

Waiting on God to act.

This is for you, Jamesy. May you always know that you were meant to be here with us. We love you, we want you, we are waiting for you.

Sissy has even dreamed about you now.

How strange it is for us not to be together. Soon.

I cannot imagine what this wait for you is like, though I one day hope to be able to. The finances are what prevents us from even taking the first step in the adoption proccess. My prayers are with you today, may God bless you as you wait for you precious one's journey home.

I know that the waiting is hard; my daughter was born in my heart 5 1/2 years before I ever held her (our process was 4 1/2 years and we prayed for a year because my husband was not emotionally ready after our son went to heaven). Remember that God is sovereign in ALL things and His timing is always perfect, just as His timing was perfect for God to send His Son. Galatians 4:4, BUT WHEN THE TIME HAD FULLY COME...Also read about the timing in John 7:30, John 13:1 and Romans 5:6.

Waiting is hard and I am praying for you. It will all be worth it. Continue to be steadfast in your faith.

Praying for you! That has got to be heartbreaking. Right now we are waiting for our county to approve us to adopt. It's an Arizona requirement and our dossier is just sitting here, ready to go, but can't be sent in until we get approval!!

I just "met" you over at McMama's. Our eldest son's best friend and his wife adopted a precious little boy from Ethiopia a few years ago. They had started his adoption when she became pregnant and had to delay it until after delivery. Asher is a beautiful member of their family now. I hope all goes well with your adoption as did theirs.

praying for you, I know so deeply how HARD the wait is. It can simply tear you to bits at times.
