Praying for Interpol

We got word today that a stack of Interpol documents has been misplaced. Our paperwork was in that stack. Families who began the clearance check after us have already gotten theirs back. Our facilitator has petitioned the Embassy on our behalf. We are going into a three day weekend here--- nothing will happen during these days. Please pray for miracles. It can happen.

Today is the first day I feel homesick. I miss my kids. I miss my bed. I miss talking to friends and family. I miss being able to get in my car and just go. I know I sound spoiled but I guess I am just down after hearing about our Interpol. I know that I need to stay focused on Him and keep my eye on the prize. Sometimes I don't do what I know I need to. I am even cranky with John, Caleb, and Rachel. Shame on me.

Your prayers are much appreciated.

FYI-- you know who. I am going to pick up a few of those brooms I think. Hope they fit in our suitcase.

Praying for you and a miracle! Praying that you will feel the prayers and feel God's peace which surpasses all understanding! Praying Satan flees your heart and mind and that you can focus on the path which God has lead you!

So sorry to hear that your document was lost or misplaced. I can imagine that you are becoming home sick. I think it is hard to be away from your children and home so long. We will pray that they find the document and that you can proceed forward with your adoption. Until then, enjoy your time and find some exciting places to visit or shop. It will help pass the time.

Praying you receive your documents. Like you said "Keep your eyes on the prize" and you will be home before you know it! Enjoy the simple life a bit longer, you will be back in the rat race soon enough! :)

When I read yesterday's post I almost commented to say that you SHOULD get a broom :-) I hope they fit in your luggage. But on a more serious note, I feel that there must be a reason that your stay in country has been extended because of this "mistake" I wish I could tell you what it was, but I hope that the purpose shows itself to you.

Praying for the papers to be found. Praying that things will happen VERY SOON. I know waiting is so hard. Hang in there.
