While its difficult to answer the question, "how is the adoption going?" its even harder when people stop asking b/c time has passed and it isn't on their minds anymore. For me its my constant thought, the thorn in my side and the tears falling behind the smile. I have so much to be thankful for and I am blessed- that is why I smile. Yet I feel the void of my daughter everyday and I never forget that she is not home- that is why I cry. I am not ungrateful. I am simply a mother, waiting for my child to come home and everyday she doesn't... it hurts.
But I have much faith. It has taken God 14 years to bring this part of His story from a desire in a 16 year old girl's heart to now knocking on the door of an African government and telling them to let us in to get His daughter Jaydn Priscilla. A few more months won't stop Him. I know He will be faithful to complete what He has promised. He will not leave Jaydn an orphan. This is His dream, we just chose to be a part of it. We cannot bring it about, so I will rest in His timing...even while I ache.
