Not the news we were hoping for

I spent the majority of last night awake, my brain betraying my sense of sanity by creating every bad/badder/worst case Visa scenario possible.

Wait, I mean every bad case scenario except the one that just happened.

I am exhausted and angry and feeling defeated and don't want to go into details. I need to let my vision return from red to normal and my blood pressure to lower so this deafening pounding in my ears can lessen.

There is still a chance that we can get Miles home next week Tuesday, but it requires a lot of mountain moving on the Lord's part.

Please pray for our son's situation. And I'm going to selfishly ask for me and my sanity, too. The Mister is in Texas all week for work, so I'm operating solo while in the middle of dance camp and soccer season and music lessons, and I'm not feeling well from this whole disaster that's otherwise known as a Haitian adoption.

Sarah...I don't even know what to say. So I'm sending you a cyber hug and a shoulder to cry on. God is still the same. We just have to deal with these wretched humans who make evil decisions while we're here on earth. :/ I'll keep praying for peace for you as the mister is gone.

Praying for God to move all the mountain between you and your sons, and to restore you to everything you need a their mother.

What a roller coaster - but on the bright side you are still getting closer than you have ever been; every day.

Hugs I know this is tough.

I hope that the Footsteps story can help to comfort you in this difficult time. We may not be able to understand everything that happens, and sometimes it's maddening when we don't get what we want, but we are not in this alone. God willing, we will see our son, both our sons, very soon. I am looking forward to Thursday and I am remaining hopeful that we will get the good news we want. Remain strong, you have no idea how much strength you have until it's tested and you are one strong woman.

With Love,
Mr.

Lord, I ask that You will move these mountains. Push paperwork. Change hearts. Get this process moving. And provide the peace, grace, patience, love, and hope needed to get through this time. Amen.
