Deep Thoughts by Sonia.

  • We are in the midst of our moving transition
  • Jacob is not handling it so well. 
  • He asked to call his "China Baba" last night. 
  • This is the first time that has happened......ever. 
  • I walked back into our home that is now filled with boxes this morning and cried. 
  • I'm going to miss it here. 
  • We have made some powerful friendships, most of them driven by our journey to the boys. Never in my life have I ever experienced such un-ending support and encouragement.
  • I accidentally donated a bunch of clothes to the thrift shop that a dear friend lent to me when we first arrived home with Joey and Jacob. In my jet lag fog I managed to miss the word lend. I feel like an idiot.
  • Jacob asked to call his China Baba last night. 
  • My husband is finishing his final exam today for the school that kept us here for another year. 
  • After 11 months I may actually see his face out from behind a book. 
  • I have forgotten what he looks like. 
  • I've decided to break with tradition and wear a simple back and white sundress to the graduation ball next week instead of a formal gown. 
  • The gowns are packed. 
  • I used to like moving so often way more than I like it now. 
  • Now it tends to make me more sad than excited. 
  • Jacob asked to call his China Baba last night.
  • The twins are at sleep away summer church camp until Friday. 
  • I miss them so much it hurts.
  • My dear friend Kim is coming into town this weekend and I can't wait to see her. 
  • My dear friend Lanette is leaving town shortly after us and I don't want to say goodbye to her. 
  • This Sunday is our last at our church. 
  • The thought of that makes me want to ugly cry. I'm going to miss my church & Bible study posse.  Those women amaze me.
  • Jacob asked to call his China Baba last night.
Sonia out. 


  1. Oh Sonia, you are in my prayers dear. :) Hang in there!!!

    Sooooo- Did Jacob call his China Babbage? Or not? That has to be the next post...

  8. Moving can be hard without any children and add 6 kids, 2 newly adopted, into the mix and that is one adventure that only the LORD can lead!
    My prayers are with you and for Jacob's little heart.
