Say what you need to say

I love this lyric:

Even if your hands are shaking
And your faith is broken
Even as the eyes are closing
Do it with a heart wide open
Say what you need to say

 

Regardless of what happens, my son is in Vietnam and no matter how hard the wait or how confusing the road, I've said what I need to say, even if it is only a reminder to my own soul.  Somewhere in the world I have a son, this much I believe.

Yesterday I was exhausted when I got home and it is strange how the mind can disconnect when brought to utter exhaustion.  And in my moment of complete exhaustion I had this crazy realization--I am going to be a mother to TWO children.  I'm going to be a single parent to two adopted children.  And I was overcome by the wonderment of it all and the mystery of how it all came to being.  Wow, God has a sense of humor.  I'm just glad I listened.

This started as my story, but has evolved to OUR story. This is the story of life as a single parent to a wonderful little boy while we wait for baby sister. China LID 2.12.07.


But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, be patient! For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day.
