new look for the ark

You're at the right place...we just have a new look.

Ya'll I have to be honest.....I'm getting discouraged.....I've been getting discouraged. Feeling like there is no end in sight where the adoption is concerned. Just being honest. If I can't be honest on my own blog, where can I be?

I'm impatient and I admit it. I know God's timing is perfect. I really do. I just want to know who our children are and I want to get started being their mom. I feel like we're soooo close but sooooo far away from a referral and then a court date (lately the courts are backed up and many are having trouble getting through) and then an embassy date and then a travel date.

Lord, You are in charge of this journey...I want to enjoy it with You!

So in the midst of my pity party, I thought I'd be constructive and make over the blog. Hope you like it!

Ok, enough about me. Let's talk about the Lord and me.

I can't have a public pity party without also sharing how good God has been this year. He has kept me so close to Him, throughout each step we've taken. He's taken me to new levels in Him and I am grateful. I will always look back on 2007 as a year of such mercy, growth and change. May next year be even more exciting as we continue this journey together, me striving to be more like Jesus, and the Lord loving me just as much as He always has....even in the midst of an ugly pity party.

Great new look!

The wait is HORRIBLE, whether you wait eleven weeks or eleven months! It just is hard! However, know that you are closer than you have ever been and soon you will know the face of your new child! Of course, once you see that face, then the waiting is REALLY, REALLY hard!! Hang in there!!
