This last pic was from the most recent update we received on our boy. Is it not the cutest thing? Snuggled in his nanny’s arm, right next to the Mickster? I love it. I can’t wait until it’s my arm that he’s snuggled into 🙂
I’m having a bit of a down day. Missing my boy. Tired of waiting for PA. Today marks 87 days we’ve waited. Officially longer than we waited for Jude’s PA, and that felt like forever. It sort of leaves me in a limbo that I’m ready to be done with already. I want to know that CCAA knows: we want to bring this precious bundle HOME!! I am hopeful, very hopeful, that we’ll get some good news in the next week or so. I suppose I am the eternal optimist, even on a down day 😉 Please keep us in your prayers, for PA, for LOA, for all those wonderful ‘A’s 🙂
We’re also in the midst of listing and selling our house. Moving. The *m* word exhausts me some days (like today), while other days it’s feels like a brand new adventure. Not sure when this will all take place, just waiting on His timing and praying that He works it all out. I know He will, He has so many times in the past. But I find myself growing tired and I realize I am leaning on my own ‘understanding’. I need to let my feeble grasp go… I need to trust Him completely.
I loved all the fantastic comments to my response to Anonymous… thank you 🙂 I hope to post more in the near future explaining a bit more about the differences in the SN vs NSN program for anyone who is interested. I am (obviously!) very passionate about the waiting child program. But I also understand that there are other families that feel just as strongly about their children who will come to them through other avenues: NSN, other countries, domestic, etc. And I think that’s the way it should be. God made us all uniquely and wonderfully, to fulfill the purpose He has for us during our short stay on earth. He won’t call us all to do the same job, but He has obviously called many of us to bring home little ones from China 🙂 I feel so blessed to be part of this awesome community of adoptive families, truly! May we all do our best to be up to the task when He calls!!
