With each new week brings a refreshed spirit and the hope, yet again, that the call may actually come. I had a very emotional weekend (just when I thought I had it all under control); however God must have seen that I needed a little more of something. I avoided people at church this morning knowing, for the first time through this whole process, that I would not be able to answer their questions and would need to politely tell them I could not talk about the adoption. The service was just what I needed and felt great afterwards until a friend approached, who is also adopting from Ethiopia, and asked how I was doing. She noticed I didn't look like myself. I burst into tears and felt like they would never end. Also was doing the solo thing this weekend as hubby was away, so there I stood an emotional mess. What better place to do this than in church I suppose. Anyway, my friend was so sweet and I pulled myself together. DARN, I get so upset with myself when emotion flies out like that when I didn't even know it was coming. Oh well, thus the journey continues. Tomorrow will bring a renewed sense of hope that the call will come this week and I will get to see the little face, the little person who has engulfed my heart with her spirit!
Also, many dear friends of mine are IN ETHIOPIA as we speak, or as I type/you read. M. Harpold and E. Treat have become family to me and I am praying for their wonderful gotcha days and first meetings with their angels. I will also be meeting them at the airport next weekend, so look for pictures of them and their new babes! Praying for their health, safety and that God shines on them during their time with their children there. You can follow their journies too as they are both blogging while there. They are listed in my Blogroll. Also, check out the Wegners, McIIrath's and Treadwell's as they are there too.
