"It's all in God's timing", that's what we have been hearing a lot of lately. I suppose it's a way of trying to comfort us, seeing that we are going crazy waiting for the visa approval. Mostly when people say that, I kinda tune out and just hear blah, blah, blah....blah, blah blah. No because I don't believe it, I just am tired.

BUT today, I am so thankful and know that God's timing is so on track. Yesterday or today was the target date that we had to travel. Yesterday, I woke up with a sore throat. I slept a good chunk of yesterday. Today, my throat was way worse, and my WHOLE body is aching. My low back feels like someone kicked me. If I was on that flight from Dubai to Addis, I would not be in a good place. I am at home, where I have total access to my vitamin cupboard, my bed, my Tylenol and my muscle relaxants!!! God's timing is what I need to focus on. NOT that I don't want to be in Addis right now, but it could have had a rough few days in Ethiopia. And I want to be on my A game when I first meet Nevaeh.

So I am off to bed, with my wet socks and woolies on top, pumped up on Goldenseal, Vitamin D and much more!!! Thank you Lord for your perfect timing in this whole journey. I know you have Nev in your arms over in Ethiopia, and that you are working on healing my body too.

What keeps me busy

I am trying to stay busy while we wait for our green light to go......Here is what I have been doing.

Recharging my really does work. Check it out. I love my towels now.

Yes. Lame. But it's what I have to do to keep sane.

Whose kidding who. I have lost my sanity a long time ago, but it's my attempt to maintain what I have left.

Have we heard anything......(the million dollar question)

What's up you ask?

Well we are waiting on pins and needles to get the green light to go and pick up Nev. We heard that 5 visa's got issued, and our was missing one last piece of paper. The LONO(letter of no objection). Our agency emailed that to them right away and now we are just waiting.........

We really, really want to hit this travel group and leave around the 24th of May. Until we get the word that her visa was issued though........its waiting. My nerves and stomach are about shot. Every time the phone rings....I jump up and hope. I think I will pull my hair out if anyone else asks me if we have heard anything. I answered that question at least 20 times yesterday. I know everyone has good intentions, but it's just the point I am at in this journey. It has been almost 3 years of people asking what's happening. In hind sight, we would wait a lot longer to let people know we are adopting, cause it really is hard having people ask you almost every day what has been happening, when a lot of the time NOTHING has happened! It's just how it goes. So if you read my blog, and see me tomorrow, just talk about normal stuff please! Believe you me, I will let all of you know, and all who can hear when we get that call and we book our flights.

I just want to hold Nevaeh Chaltu. Whether she is crying or smiling, I just want to hold her. Hear what her cry sounds like. Feel her skin. Feel her hair. See her smile and hear her laugh. I just want to hear the we can go pick up our daughter.
