adoption

Posted: 10/20/2008 in family, life

there is much i do not understand. much that is different when you adopt internationally from domestically and different than with your biological children; yet much is the same.

much depends on which side of the fence you are on. 

the journey is almost complete. this seems to be the hardest part…

i’m stuck for just a couple more days. stuck wondering. feeling like i don’t understand. like i can’t do anything to help. wishing i could console with something tangible. hoping my prayers are enough. knowing there is really nothing else i can do. but make sure there is a hearty warm supper when they walk in the door, fresh sheets, clean toilets, snacks in the cupboards, clean pajamas and a warm house, oh and TOYS!

oh i wish i could do more!  

but until i can do more.

i sit here and wait, wiping my tears while they rush around ukraine searching for a food store (hoping they don’t have to walk for hours), constantly praying the tantrums are far between (he’s two and just got stripped from everything and everyone he’s even known! what two year old wouldn’t throw a few?!), that sleep is deep and long, the paperwork and loops they must jump through are quick and painless and giggles are abundant.

home is so far, but soon they will be here!

pray with me.

pray for them; for strength divine!

    Praying for them! It has to be such a roller coaster of a ride. What a blessing to have everything ready for them when they get home!

    Oh, yes. The waiting is so hard. Been there, waiting with a friend.

    It is so hard .. the waiting, the adjustments, the tantrums.

    Prayer and support and a shoulder to cry on when the weeks have been long, frustrating and disheartening .. better than anything money can buy.

    I’m praying for you all.
