I'm not one to really ask for help, but...

I have been going through an incredibly tough time with our agency. I don't feel like the communication is what it could be. I have been as tolerant of the excuses and mix ups as I possibly can. This is my son we are talking about....what happens if they have a problem after referral or while we are in Taiwan?? I want to have faith that all the problems have been worked out....they have given me real evidence....but having "misunderstandings" at this point in the waiting game makes me a LOT nervous!! Here is what I need from you wonderful bloggers... #1 Keep me in your thoughts and prayers that I don't say anything that will jeopardize the adoption. (I can easily lose my temper)#2 That I continue to trust God and REALLY believe He is in control. #3 That I don't let the stress of this situation hurt my wonderful marriage any more.

Thanks to all who lurk and don't leave a comment. I know you will do your part as well. This rainbow was here tonight after I got "semi-decent" news from our agency.

I will be lifting you up in prayer--that God will give you peace during this time, and that He will smooth the way for you!

Waiting is so hard. I don't know if you knew but I had mt share of many setbacks that put us way later for getting our baby. But we now have Anna and it all worked out the way God intended.

Every call has a beginning. A quiet moment when God whispers a promise to a mother’s heart . A holy place where a father bows and faithfully accepts the journey set before him. A miraculous morning that unexpectedly dawns… Casting its first light on a chosen threshold. A gentle knock..a closed door opens, a sacred invitation sent by the Father.. leads to the other side of the world. Where lonely hearts stare out orphanage windows praying for someone to care.. and then one morning, on an ordinary day an orphan’s life changes... God sends them a second chance...Through you..

We are a family now, a whole,of which you are a part,and you are just as much our child as any in our heart. We do not love you differently,nor would we give up less of all that life has given us to bring you happiness.There is no limit to our love,no boundary you might cross,no price you may be asked to pay,no need to fear its loss. We are now one, the five of us,windows of one home. As long as we have life and breath,You’ll never be alone.~Nicholas Gordon
