Chrystal Gafford on May 12, 2009 at 11:06 pm Maybe you should go to bed earlier…… 😉 dreamingBIGdreams on May 12, 2009 at 11:18 pm chrystal now that is a good idea!!!!! 🙂 dreamingBIGdreams on May 12, 2009 at 11:19 pm Thanks Leslie! I can’t wait for all of our kids to play together! Kelly on May 13, 2009 at 5:27 am Thank you for sharing your heart, and helping me feel like I’m not crazy. We are almost a year in the adoption process, and we don’t even know the child God has choosen for our family. I already have some of those same thoughts. I can’t imagine how long the wait will feel once we see our daughters sweet face. Part of my daily prayer life includes asking God to show me that His timing is perfect. I know this biblical truth, but need a daily (& sometimes moment by moment reminder). I pray for your family everyday. God is good & His timing is perfect. Brenda Yonker on May 13, 2009 at 6:15 am After doing 3 adoptions it always seems like you cannot walk ONE MORE STEP and all of a sudden you hear they are ready to come home. It is not an easy path. I actually had someone tell me that adoption was much easier than giving birth. I was so angry. They had never adopted. I wanted to slap them. Praying for you guys and that your kiddos are released soon. Tamara Cosby on May 13, 2009 at 6:15 am I love you Jamie. I love your heart and your passion and your being. You make this all come to life in a way I cannot even explain…I cannot wait to love on Amos & Story while I’m loving on Deacon & Cayden!!! CAN.NOT.WAIT. Praying for you guys!!! logsatm04 on May 13, 2009 at 7:50 am We pray for your family and for Amos and Story often. my prayer has been that the Lord would teach you His longing to be with His adopted children while they have yet to be united to him before salvation. May the gospel give you hope, God always gathers His adopted children and His faithfulness will prevail here. Thank you for sharing your heart through this. It changes lives. debraparker on May 13, 2009 at 8:50 am closer and closer. I cannot wait to see the video. It sounds awesome. Diane on May 13, 2009 at 11:48 am Been ten years since we began our first adoption…..five children later and three adoptions later….we are learning rest in Him. We S T I L L do NOT do this well, but, it is clear we are sllloooowww learners:) All that to say, we are now beginning another leg of our family journey. The upstart of an orphan care/adoption support ministry within our home church. Not an easy road either:-( Two words we’ve learned over the course of the years…..”WAIT” and “HOPE”. Even in the wait…in whatever we are called to do there is “HOPE” Gonna be right on the other side of this screen waiting and hoping A & S home…you hear that? HOME!!!! PLEASE!!!! I love the way children pray….I’m gonna ask PLEASE A LOT MORE WHEN PRAYING!!!! BIG HUGS JAMIE AND ALL! Heather on May 13, 2009 at 1:50 pm Pleading for you and your family on a daily basis. Lord, please bring Amos and Story home now. nancymattingly on May 13, 2009 at 2:44 pm You are closer than you’ve ever been!!! Oh, Jamie, how I wish I could do MORE than pray!!! However, pray is what God has called me to do for you. I cannot tell you how many times a day He puts you in my mind and heart!!! The prayers come easily for those I love. You are the best mom, and you will find the joys of mothering FOUR to be over the top. Hang on, for God indeed IS working, and you are so very close! In walking this journey with you, I have wondered and wondered if this is just a little taste of what God feels for those He loves and has adopted?!!! How His heart must long for each of us as well….. you guys sure are loved. a bunch. Erin on May 13, 2009 at 6:10 pm Hello there, I found your blog though a blog though a blog….you know the routine! :o) What a compelling, beautiful, heartbreaking but inspiring story you bring to so many through your words on your blog. I pray (all the way from Snohomish, Washington state) that you are able to bring your children home to you soon. If you don’t mind me asking, is there a particular hang-up in the adoption which is why your adoption is taking so long, or is it just the country of Haiti with all of the miscellaneous red tape and paperwork? We have many friends from church and school (I have a kindergartener girl and 5th grade twin boys) who have adopted (China, Taiwan, Vietaman, Columbia, etc.) and it seems as though once they got their referrals, they had their children in their arms within a couple of months. Is this typical for Haitian adoptions? I will continue to send prayers your way that you will have your son and daughter in your arms FOR GOOD by summer…wishful thinking?
