Well, I haven't posted in over a week. The last time I posted I was feeling dreary and I hate to admit that my mood has not improved much. I have been sick all week. I finally went to the doctor yesterday and am now on an antibiotic and an inhaler for my chest congestion. I have been so exhausted all week. I am ready to feel normal again. Thankfully, Justin has been taking up the slack and helping with the boys even more than he already does.
Sawyer had his nursery rhyme parade at school today. He was Little Boy Blue. We all went to watch him and cheer him on.
Next week at this time I will be on my way to the Created To Care retreat. I can't wait. I just need a little extra encouragement right now and God knew that when I signed up for the retreat months ago. Speaking of encouragement there is a beautiful adoption story written by my friend Catherine on Kelly's Corner today. She also has people link up and tell their adoption stories. Our adoption story is still being written. I long to know how it will turn out. I want to know when we will see our daughter's face. I want to know who she is and for her to be home with us. There are so many unknowns. I struggle with doubts and worries on a daily basis. All I know right now is that we are being obedient to the calling God put on our hearts. We are seeking after Him. We want our story to bring glory to our Heavenly Father. He is writing our adoption story and for that I am thankful.
