It's neat to see how God has turned what was once our greatest pain into such a passion. We know all too well just how STUCK some of these children are. Waiting to complete "Juan's" adoption is hard, but we're okay. It gives us time to finally begin to recover from all of the expenses of the U.S. side of the process while beginning to rebuild our savings for the Colombian side and for the future. However, knowing that "Juan" just waits, not even knowing that he's closer to coming home than he has ever been before--it breaks my heart. I feel like he's just stuck--stuck far away and out of touch with the people who love him the most. It's just not fair. His life just keeps going, time that we could and should be together as a family just keeps ticking away, while we still wait on paperwork to be matched up right, translated, and sent to the right places. Ugh. I feel like every little step seems to take an eternity. Too many i's to be dotted and t's to be crossed, if you ask me. But what can I do other than pray and wait for God's timing--and advertise for this tour so we can at least get the government's attention for the need for a better system.
I hope to see some familiar faces at one, several or all of the events!
