I have been waiting for some inspirational words to share. I have thought over many topics I could touch on. There are many needs in this world that can get me really fired up and going.

But the truth is I can't concentrate on them long enough to write anything worth anyones time in reading! My mind is consumed with meeting my girls! I love my life. I love my husband. I love my children. But I want to be in Bulgaria now, holding my babies! [though I guess 6 years old isn't much of a baby! :+)]

I am trying to still be a good wife and mother, but I am not real motivated to do anything. I know this will pass... but boy is it hard! Here I am waiting for something wonderful.

What must it be like to wait for something horrible? My heart is really with those parents tonight, waiting for an outcome that isn't good. By the grace of God, I have not been that parent yet. We have had minor to bad... but nothing terrible! Since I am apparently so bad at waiting for the GOOD, I pray I never have to find out how very bad I am waiting for the terrible!


  1. I know that feeling o' so well. It is similiar to "nesting" I suppose, just waiting for the exciting day to arrive--and nothing else seems to matter much. Just do not let the joy of the Lord pass and let some of the "not so important" things slide. Enjoy the feeling....

  2. Praying for you that your time goes quickly. I know it feels like forever at this point. Soon you will be marveling over how much time has passed since you brought your girls home. Rhonda

  3. For us the days turned into weeks, then months,now almost 2 years. I would encourage you to stay "present" in your life and family. I woke up one day feeling like I had missed something because I was so caught up in my little adoption world. It is hard for your heart to be in 2 places at once. Praying things go quickly for you.

  4. Alice, I hvae followed your story. Those that wait what seems like forever have my admiration, support, and prayers! I really don't know how you do it, it must be a "God thing!". I can not wait till you have your boy home!

    Thank you for your advice, it is most welcome!
