Full of Feelings....

So, Tim will be home early Sunday morning from Haiti. I am so excited to see him, hear all the stories, and just be near him again. I cannot wait. This has been one of the longest weeks ever!

I am also so sad that Tim will have to leave Isaiah. I hate for him to finally start to feel comfortable with Tim and them loose him. I hate for him to be at the Orphanage. If only we could take turns being there for a few weeks at a time.....

I am so grateful for Isaiah's mom. I don't know if she will ever know how thankful we are to have the opportunity to parent Isaiah. I pray for her daily. It takes a very special woman to place their child willingly. I pray that one day when we go back as a family, we are able to reconnect with her!

Next, we moved, I feel as though I have been living in a hotel for the last week and a half. My new home, all the while a huge blessing, just doesn't feel like home yet. Maybe it is because Tim isn't here, maybe it is because I am not unpacked, I don't know.... I am just thankful, and feel very blessed to have the Lord on my side. We don't deserve anything that we have, yet for some reason, God keeps on giving to us. I am totally in AWE of him and his love for us.

Now on to the MAD part. Since we moved, we had several large trash bags of cans that we left on the side of our home. I had left that and a few other things to go back and pick up. Well, I went the other day, and someone has taken all our cans. I know for those of you who don't know, but those were part of our fundraising efforts. UGGGGGG the nerve of people. (by the way Jeremy and Michelle, Thanks a bunch for the cans!! Todd just dropped them off tonight, and they couldn't have come at a better time! I promise not to let them get stolen!!)

Any how, my final feeling is overwhelming peace about our adoption. Tim just got the paperwork completed in Haiti this week, and I can honestly say that I have complete peace. I truly believe that Isaiah will be home by Late summer. I know that this sounds crazy, but God is speaking to my heart. I am praying hard, and choosing to believe that what I feel in my heart is going to happen. God is amazing, and can accomplish anything. I also believe that since we started this adoption after a lot of people, that other children will need to come home first. With that said, I believe that children will start coming home by March! Please pray with me. If we are all praying together, all the better!

I will blog with pictures soon,
