I heard this song the other day and actually listened to words, and Wow!, it really ministered to me. In the chorus it says "God is great, but sometimes life ain't good, when I pray it doesn't always turn out like I think it should, but I do it anyway." It made me think back on our life and how we prayed so hard for Colt's physical healing. Things just weren't happening like we thought they should, but we prayed anyway. It was often hard to believe if tomorrow could possibly be better than today, but we believed it anyway. Even after our world came crashing down us we kept believing, we kept dreaming, we kept loving, and most of all we kept trusting in our Lord. I've been stressing a little with our travel dates finally getting closer. Our life is about to change, again, and this is a new beginning for our family. I know this is going to be challenging for our family, but this is God's plan for us, and we have learned to trust in His plan whether it is what we had pictured or not. When we started this adoption I had this picture in my mind of what it was going to be like, and that completely changed the day I saw her and we decided to adopt her. Jolea is so special to us, and we are just so in love with her. You guys probably wonder how we can fall in love with a picture. I don't know how but we have. I just look back at where we were a few years ago and where we are now, and I can't believe it. I never thought our life could be filled with joy, laughter, and happiness like we have now. When I think about Colt, I smile. He is in Gods presence at this very moment and I couldn't be happier for him. I can't wait to tell Jolea all about her big brother. Now all we need is a travel date!

I know exactly what you mean Christi and there's nothing worse than your baby girl being on the other side of the world waiting for a mother's arms to hold her. I never cease praying for you.
