jumping through hoops

sometimes i think it is crazy how many hoops you have to jump through to bring home an orphan. then there is another side of me that is so thankful for the hoops we jump through because that means not just anyone can bring home one of these orphans. but needless to say it does get exhausting jumping through hoops. but our babies need us to keep jumping through them over and over again.

with every step forward it's two steps back. every day brings us one step closer to bringing home our kids and every day reminds me how far away we truly are. it's crazy to think it's been over a year since we pursued adoption and we are still so far away from bringing home our babies.

tomorrow is our last free Saturday for awhile. starting next Saturday we have a training class from 9-4 through the end of the year. and bless brian's heart. in january he starts school again so he is basically saying goodbye to saturdays from now until summer of 2011. please pray for our strength and patience. we are running thin on both these days. i'm home today sick with the crud and brian has been working substituting during the day and working at night so needless to say he is also running on empty. we have such a long ways to go and we are in desperate need of your prayers to carry us through this. thank you so much for walking with us and being a part of this. may you be blessed!
