We witness a miracle each time a child enters a life. But those who must make their journey home across time and miles, growing in the hearts of those waiting to love them, are carried on the wings of destiny. And placed among us by God's own hands.

O.k. I admit I am experiencing a moment of fatigue and frustration. Typically summers are filled with just hanging out and having fun with the kids. But for some reason this summer has flown by. It has become what I am calling the "summer of service". Between summer jobs, volunteer service, and prepping for fundraising time has just gone to fast. There have also been moments when all that I do feels fruitless. I put alot of time into applying for several adoption grants and all we continue to receive are rejection letters. I was really hoping we would at least receive support from "Show Hope" but today I received their rejection letter as well. Maybe we make to much money, which is hard to believe given that we are lower middle class, or maybe we are just not the right type of people if you know what I mean. Whatever the reason it is still frustrating. Now I am not saying that I am not fully aware of how blessed I am in my life, but everyone now and then I still get frustrated like everyone else.


  1. ugh. I can relate to your feelings. I am awaiting our Show Hope rejection letter too :)

    hopefully someone will get some good news someday!

  2. I'm really sorry we can't make it to the fundraiser. We're moving on Tuesday and will be packing all weekend. Best of luck, and hang in there.
