I have been avoiding the blog. Sorry, I haven't even checked for comments, they're so kind.
I miss the boys... it makes me feel it all over again when I blog, but usually by the end of the post, I'm encouraged again, so... here I am.
By it, I mean missing the boys and going over thoughts about Haiti. I keep feeling stuck. Stuck between two worlds. America and a 4th world country. The contrast is mind boggling. Uugh, how do you deal with that? Complete poverty verses complete comfort. My day here, verses their day at the orphanage. All I have to do is say the word orphanage and that sums it up.
We do have some good news though, we are in IBESR and our file is being reviewed because they asked us to correct something in one of our documents. That gives us some hope anyway.
The Lord has given me a verse that comforts my heart as well as makes me hopeful for the day when my posts are not about missing the boys, but about our boys being home. Take a look.
Psalm 126:5-6
Those who plant in tears will harvest with shouts of joy.
They weep as they go to plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the harvest.
Makes you wanna shout Hallelujah right!! And, PRAISE GOD FOR ADOPTION too!!

  11. I think of you often. I pray for you even more. My prayer is that the Lord will continue to bless you and give you comfort because you are his faithful servant. I see your faith and your love for Him and it leaves me in awe. Knowing what you have been through and how you continue to praise him and carry on in faith. What a testament to the Love of God. Peace that surpasses all understanding. I have not forgotten you and miss you dearly. Love you all. Send my love to children. I have been so busy I haven't had the time to stop by even for a minute. We will have more time in the next few weeks if you want to catch up. my number is nine nine four two zero six four. or you can email me.
