My Son...

Is perfect
Love to hang out

Enjoys Cheetos's



Love's to play



and will forever be treasured!
I had an amazing trip! I learned a lot, and will always remember the way he looked at me, threw me a smile, or ran toward me to grab a hold of my legs and give me a hug! I will never forget the way he would grab my face just to pull me near.
On this trip, my cell phone worked, and he was able to talk to Papa! I am sure that will cost us, but it's during those precious moments, that no amount of money could stop it from happening!
He was sick for a day or so, but even then, I loved just being there, cleaning up after him, changing him, buying pedialyte, and holding him, being a real mommy, not just a long distance prayer mom. I long for the day he comes home, so I can hear his voice daily, so I can teach him right from wrong, and I can have to cook and clean for him. I look forward to the day when my family is all together here, in our home. I know it will happen, the Lord has shown and spoke to my heart.
I am so thankful that I got to meet his mom this trip! I asked her what fears and hopes she has for him when he comes to America, and she said that she hopes he can become a Doctor, and that she has no fears, because she likes me! What a blessing to my heart it was to hear her say that! I struggle with a lot of what ifs, and a recent one, was what if she doesn't like me? God was good to me this trip!
I have learned that he holds food, and wont swallow, so now I can say it in creole! Ha Ha! I really need to learn how to speak creole. I want to learn! I want to be able to speak to him and his mother, when I pick him up. I am old, and I don't know if this will ever be possible, but if anyone out there would like to tutor me, please let me know!
It was hard to leave him behind this trip. It's never been easy, but I really just wanted to stay longer. I am not one who will cry, or show that I am very upset, but once I am home, I think it really hits me. I have been sick with what I think is a Haiti bug every since I got back, and even while feeling like crap, I have wanted nothing more than to be there again! Please pray with us, that it won't be much longer. Please pray that my son will be healthy while in Haiti. Please pray for all the Orphanage workers and American directors and our Attorney, that they would all be on the same page, that they would somehow, be able to push for movement with our process. I know that God can move our file, so please beg him on our behalf that he would...

I am so glad that you had a great trip Sarah. I continue to pray that your file will be released from IBESR & that you will quickly enter & exit the remaining steps so your son can come home to you soon.

How awesome that you got to see him Sarah...these pictures and memories are priceless. I hope to make some too next month. I have the same prayers for movement, health and peace, and will pray them for you also. May God's hand be on our babies....and on the files that will bring them finally HOME. HUGS!
