     As each day passes it is getting harder and harder to wait.  I'm one of those annoying people who tends to bounce and jiggle their legs when sitting and especially when in a state of nervousness.  I burn a LOT of calories that way.  I've been sitting at the computer since 5:30 this morning working and just realized that I have been in constant motion the entire time.  My leg has been going constantly.  So much for trying to eat more and gain some of my lost weight back! 

     I worry.  I worry about our pile of precious papers sitting over there.  I worry that something will be wrong and that they will be rejected.  It is my greatest fear right now.  I confess.  I am battling my fears.  I will be so relieved when we receive a date.  Having those papers pass will be a day of great rejoicing for us.  Please pray.  It is ALL we can do yet it is the GREATEST thing we can do.  Lift up our little one to the Lord today.  Take the time to pray for our paperwork and for the hearts of those who read it.  Please pray.  Pray for Aaron and pray for Rob and me.  Pray that we will be filled with peace.  Pray that we will be able to just trust and rest that God is in control. 


  1. I'm on it. Thought of you guys when I woke up randomly at 2 am.

  2. I'm feeling the anxiety and have lost weight, too! Though I think I could spare more to lose than you ;-) But I am at my pre-pregnancy weight from my first. But the anxiety and waiting is a doozy, and right now we're just waiting for our fingerprint appointments. I can't imagine how it will be when we send our dossier in! I'll continue to pray for you and Aaron!

  3. I have added your Aaron to my prayer list. God IS faithful and He will see you through!! Thanks for sharing some of your insights with me.

  4. PS We used to pastor about an hour and half from Charlottesville...infact our favorite B&B is the absolutely beautiful!

  5. I stumbled upon your blog...your little Aaron is absolutely adorable. One of our sons has Arthrogryposis. His name is Isaiah and he is 6 years old. We brought him home in 2008. Anyway, I will be praying for your papers and as God prepares Aaron to meet his forever family. Blessings!


Loving words from kind people make our hearts glad!
