60 + days and still waiting

I got nuthin new in the ridiculously long bout to drive me crazy wait for LSC's.

I'd be lyin if I said it didn't bother me at all.
It bothers me.
I'm there mom, it should bother me.
It isn't consuming me...which I guess is good considering I have four other sweet faces needing me at the moment....
but it bothers me.

Lately though my heart has been incredibly burdened by those left behind.
Take this little fella in the yellow shirt for instance sitting next to Jacob.

He is one of three kids out of the 8 in Joey & Jacob's foster home that doesn't yet have a family.
Within the next few months 5 of those children will be adopted and

He is 3 weeks younger than the twins and when I look at them it's all I can see.
A child.
A child left behind.

Wow. I'm such a downer today...
So how bout a joke?

Here goes.

Knock, knock
Who's there?
Lettuce who?
Lettuce in, it's cold outside!

Yeah. I need to get out more.

Please pray with us that Satan gets out of our way in bringing these boys home. We know that he knows that when we finally reach them they will hear the Word and be told of the love the Father has for them and we know that is the last thing the enemy wants.
And if you would like more info on the sweet boy in the picture, let me know and I'll tell you where to find him. He is precious!

Jesus turned and said to Peter, "Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men." Matthew 16:23

Yep. Get behind me Satan.
Love that.


  1. Oh, Sonia. I know your heart is hurting for your boys. It is so easy for me, being on the other side of adoption. I NOW can see God's perfect timing in everything, but boy did it hurt seeing everyone pass me up. But, you are on the right track. Look to the One whose hands these boys are in.

  2. Love it, too...

    So sorry you have had to endure the pain of this extra long wait, ugh...

    It has taken us 1 plus months just to get hubby's local clearance... okay okay- he had it out with the local meter maid but still the guy is clean and this is ridiculous!!

    Feeling your pain! Praying it comes soon, like NOW SOON!

    FYI we waited for 17 weeks for a PA one time- pure torture... turns out the pervious person qui and the new person got married ... and went on a honeymoon ... and then had a baby... okay now i'm kidding but she kept putting us at the bottom of the pile... another ugh..

    praying and praying!

  3. We were 104 days for Bryson. 76 days for Gio and I was so hoping to make at least day 50 for Gracie! It was so hard watching EVERYONE pass us with Bryson. It was pure torture, but HIS timing was perfect as it has been in each of our adoptions. That is why I have completely surrendered Gracie's to Him. I know that the timing will be His plan and not mine. His always turns out better!

    Mind you we are only on day 2 of waiting for LOA for Gracie!

    Thinking of ya though!

  4. Praying you'll get those LSCs soon! Ya know, you'll probably speed through the other 15 steps and beat the rest of us to China. I wouldn't be surprised...

  5. We are praying with you as we pray the enemy out of our adoption of Kaleb too! Right there with ya my friend....and WHAT happened with the meter maid?? Do tell!! LOL!

  6. WAIT...I'm sorry that was Jean's post! HA! Oh this tired momma's brain is NOT doing well tonight....OBVIOUSLY! :)
