Some Inspiration While We Wait...

We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life.
But those who make their journey home across time & miles,
growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them,
are carried on the wings of destiny and placed among us
by God's very own hands.
--- Kristi Larson

...waiting that is killing me by the way...

...we should be hearing something any time now...flights are quickly filling up...

"Come on people!"

(I think Ben is feeling the same way)


  1. This is the really hard part. But, with grace, you can do it! This is where I found the virtue of patience to be allusive.

    Try to go to adoration and pray for that peace to fill you up. I spent so much time there praying for peace and that is where I was when the travel call came! Imagine! David came in and told me as we were taking turns watching the kids outside while one of us stayed inside.

    My word verification today eagor!

  2. Thanks Patty!

    Too funny, yes I am very eagor!

    My word verification for a comment I left today on Jen's blog was very close to Ben's Armenian name Suren!

  3. that's just so cool! (the verification words). God is personal like that. I am inspired...loved that quote on your post. I can only imagine the anticipation you are feeling right now. I love and am deeply blessed by you sharing this journey with all of us. Because...when Ben is finally placed into your arms, it'll feel like he is being placed right into our hearts. Much love and prayer for that little guy and your family. Soon, Jill...soon!

  4. Amanda-thank you for your sweet words!
