1. Thinking of you and understanding the pain of waiting and being at the mercy of someone else. Waiting to travel to China for our daughter's adoption was one of the most painful times of my life. Extra hugs.

  2. I am so sorry that you are struggling! I remember this point in our adoption, and it was awful. Just awful. There is no easy fix. No magic words. Some days/weeks you are filled up with peace, and others you are struggling for air. And it's awful. And no one (except other adoptive families who are precisely where you are) knows what it feels like. And it feels rotten and lonely.

    I am so sorry, sweet friend! I am covering you in prayer today.

    Matt and I finally started operating as though we WOULD be around (for busy season, for conferences, for trainings, etc.) only because we were tired of having to continually explain that we thought we'd be in Africa but here we are, and this is why, and agreeing with the other person/people that yes, it should be easier to adopt…

    May not help you guys, but it worked for us. It saved us some painful conversations, at the very least.

    Much love!

  3. I am definitely praying for you! We started our journey with Taiwan and I felt the exact same way and was really struggling waiting. We switched to Uganda which actually went quickly for us, but the whole process in general is emotionally draining and at times just frustrating. We do not know whether or not Taiwan will ever happen, but we know God had us on that path for a reason and hope to one day complete an adoption from there too! I will keep you guys in my prayers and hope you get to go ASAP 🙂 Sincerely, Taryn

  4. We are waiting for news on our travel too. I know it's difficult but I will be praying for you and hoping you hear about your court date soon. The sooner you go, the sooner we can go!

  5. I have been following your blog for a while and while I don't delight in your pain, I appreciate your honesty. I will be praying for you as you wait.
