Nostalgia Week

10 Mar

Today marks 4 years since we started the journey of a lifetime. Right about now, we were loading up these guys

& with tear-filled eyes, driving to Metropolis to meet my parents who would care for the boys for the next 4 weeks. Of course, we didn’t know it would be 4 weeks, but that’s probably a good thing. When J~ & I returned from the traumatic (for us) drop-off, we finished packing under a cloud of uncertainty. The night before we had gotten a call from our agency with yet another G&R date change. We pressed on; what else could we do? As departure was approaching we went to supper with some dear friends & headed to the train station. After such an emotionally exhausting day, we were blessed by more of our friends who came to the station to send us off.

J~ & I ended the evening at a hotel in Chicago, anxiously waiting for our flight the following morning.


T~ is really enjoying the retelling of Her Story this year. The story is familiar to her but as she grows, it takes on a different meaning. G~ has been writing about adoption & ‘orfens’ lately so he is processing too.


In other news, we are just about to start Spring Break. We have nothing major planned & I cannot tell you how much I am looking forward to nothingness. The boy’s are a little disappointed about the lack of a trip to a water park but they’ll get over it when they realize they have hours to play with each other, hopefully outside. I suppose I should scoop the poop while it’s still frozen…

    What an awesome story T has — parents who came to find her and claim her as God’s child and part of a very loving and caring family.

    Question: Did you ever put her story into an actually storybook? OR Do you have her pictures in an album and retell the story that way? I’ve been trying to figure out how we’ll approach that WHEN it happens. Dear Lord, please let it happen soon.

    Yay for T being YOUR daughter!

      I’ve been wondering if you were still Waiting Without End. I’ll answer your other questions in an upcoming post. Thanks for asking, it’s something I’ve been meaning to write about.

    Four years goes by so quickly, doesn’t it? We came home on St. Patrick’s Day four years ago!
