Just a quick update to say that we are NOT going to be DTC this week. Thanks to my sweet friends who have been emailing and asking, checking on us. The long story short of it is that UPS lost our package that had our 797 (just the copy PTL!) when we sent it off for certification. It was eventually (6 days later) found and delivered. However, that put us behind.
I'm just being honest, this is the part of the adoption process that I HATE. I feel like the days just drag on and he gets older and older and it can be very consuming emotionally for me. Last time, during our long wait for Ashley, the Enemy really had a blast with me because he knows this is where to get me...one of my children. It became very consuming last time to the point where I had a hard time focusing on anything else...I was constantly checking the RQ site, blogs, anything that gave any indication of a timeline. This time, I've had to decide that I will not be doing that. I'll check out the RQ site every once in awhile, but not obsess over timelines. I'll check in on others' blogs, but not every day. It's just to hard for me and I'd just rather get the call, and live my life in the meantime. I have 4 other children to take care of and they need me here. With them, emotionally, not just physically.
The Lord knows. He will bring him home. I believe that 100%. Beyond that, I'm going to stand still and let the Lord fight the battle for me.
Thanks for the prayers and for being on this crazy road with us. It's so much more fun with friends!
