“Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing!”
Geeezz! What a day. I am absolutely running on empty tonight. I can’t even think straight.
I don’t know where to begin. It has been ridiculously crazy. Ups and downs since we headed to the orphanage. Oh my goodness, I am officially over the whole adoption process in this region! The battle for my daughters lives has continued today. Enough already.
The good news is that I have the girls! Sorry, the pic is horrible.
Yep–I am quickly learning that I am going to have to do some serious weight training to get muscles in my arms.
Thank you to my dear friend, Kristin, for the sweetest little outfits. Just perfect.
The bad news is that I was right–Hailee is not doing well AT ALL. Oh my goodness, she is completely overwhelmed. She has a nasty habit of scratching the back of her ears (self-soothing behavior). Well, today she has literally scratched them raw until they will not stop bleeding. It is awful. I feel so bad for her. She has cried for hours and hours. Poor baby is completely confused–she has no idea what has happened. I know it will just take some time. Thank the Lord we have a lifetime to help her know that she is safe. We just have to take baby steps.
Harper is doing great. She is just adorable.
Please forgive the very quick update, but I have two angels who WILL NOT sleep…and a brain that is just not functioning very well.
I will give a detailed update with lots of photos tomorrow. Anthony arrives in the afternoon. Praise God! I can hardly wait for him to meet his newest blessings. And I so need my beloved hubby here with me.
Please can I ask you to cover sweet Hailee in prayer, friends? The next few days and weeks are going to be really tough for her. Thankfully I just knew that she would struggle, so I am not surprised by what I see. It’s just so hard to see her grieving the way she is. Breaks my heart.
God never said the road would be easy–but He did promise to be there in our times of need. For that I am so thankful tonight.
So thankful for each one of you too.
