Waiting and Watching
It is a blessing…it is also hard. That is all we do is consume ourselves with Waiting and Watching. This has been the hardest time of my life. I have run after Jesus begging Him to move.
I received 8 new pictures of our son, whom we have not touched since Oct 2010. He is 1 yr. older, he is *so* much bigger. We are watching him grow up, in pictures. Kissing those booboos, through pictures. We are watching smiles and giggles, through pictures. Seeing the tears and illness, through pictures. We are watching him play, through pictures. Also, we are watching him grow, through pictures.
Please join us in prayer, in our son coming home, so we can watch his triumphs and milestones in person, instead of in pictures. It will happen, I know it will. I hold onto that thread of hope believing what seems impossible. For now, I will relish these pictures. I will pray fervently for his safety, physical health, and mental/emotional health. Lastly, I will love from an ocean away. International adoption is hard. Plain and simple. In conclusion, we will still be Waiting and Watching.
