Pathetic, I know.

Here's me whining.


It has only been a week since our agency got home from the Congo with lots of new referrals, but our call has not come yet. Soon.  In God's time.

Until then I've got some medical issues to work out. I've been sick for two weeks with bad headaches and exhaustion. No cold symptoms other than that. I'm not a headache person generally--even with five kids they are rare--but these have been terribly debilitating. So my doc has run a bunch of blood tests and everything cMe back normal. He is now sending me to have an MRI. I'm sure it will come back normal and I will just be diagnosed with some virus. But I do pray for relief.

If you have a minute, could you please say a prayer?  God knows I need relief, and he honors our fervent prayers.

Until I have relief, or a referral, I will be off the blog.

Email from the agency

Our agency has sent some staff to DR Congo to do some training and to provide much needed money and medical care to the kids who wait to be adopted. The agency's waiting child site began to fill up with photos of gorgeous children--even twins!  Unfortunately, I was sad to see that they were all older than 3. So I emailed the director and asked if there were other referrals being made. She assured me that they have received many new referrals and that our referral would be coming soon. She said that we are sitting at #2 in the referral queue. That is AWESOME!  It could happen fast, or really slow, but I cannot wait to see our little girl's face!
