HI everyone! Well My oldest son, Aaron is now safely tucked away at his College. He is a freshman at Valley Forge Christian College and I am so proud of him. It is truly strange for him to not be home (our house is the place where him and his friends where every single day as well) so even with 2 young ones at home I feel like I am going through empty nest syndrome hahah. I am missing my big guy, but am so so so proud of him. I cant believe he is off and on his own and doing amazing and loving college. Geesh where has the time gone???
I am sitting here waiting for our paperwork to come back from the Consulate with Authentication and then all will be shipped off to China and I will finally be able to say we have DTC .. but not yet. I cant believe how long this process takes as we have been working away like crazy people since February and thought our son would be home by November until we hit sooooo many speed bumps and roadblocks. I know this is all in Gods time and He has the perfect plan, but it is sometimes hard when I know my son is now aware of us and wondering what is taking so long for his mommy and daddy to come and get him.... We are coming Luke!!!. Our big guy is going to be 10 on September 22nd and it is sad to know we wont be there with him.... but we are planning on sending him another care package with more pictures of us and a nice big cake! It is nice to know that this is his last birthday without a family and I plan to throw on whopper of a shindig for his birthday next year :)
So for now I just sit and wait for notice from Madison that our paperwork is back from the Consulate and on its way to China!!!!!!!tick, tock, tick , tock
- My name is Tracy and I am married to an amazing man, his name is Thomas! We are a busy family that is always on the go between church, school, work and sports.... we are not a sitting around kind of family. We have 4 amazing children and are working on bringing home Elias to make 5. My hubby is Deaf and I am a sign language interpreter,we are very involved in the Deaf community and are excited to be adding another Deaf member to our family. Our kids, Aaron-19, Luke-11, Tommy-10 and Paige-5 are anxious for their new brother to be home. This is our second adoption and we are learning more everyday to lean on God, this journey is already strengthening our faith! We are working on learning how to turn everything over to God and know that He has a perfect plan and all will happen in His time! Good things come to those who wait.
