Olympics HERE I COME ...

OK, so who needs a laugh today ... I know I do !!!!  I haven't been to sleep before midnight much since Maggie got home, but last night I was just at the exhausted point so I went to bed at 10:30 even with Maggie awake (no lectures on that please ... hee hee)  ... I started putting my phone on vibrate in my room on a table when Katie went back to Africa just in case she needed someone urgently (that is the mother in me) ... So there I am in the deepest sleep and the phone vibrates at 12:37 ... I SHOT OUT OF BED AND SPRINTED TO THE PHONE ... LITERALLY 2 SECONDS FLAT ... of course, I think it is MY CALL  ... My call to go, My call to see my kids, my call to take one more step to having Joseph and Daisy home ..... and in that 2 seconds it took me to get to the phone I already had myself on a plane, holding my children, and visiting Katie .... Needless to say, it was not my call, but it was sweet Katie sending me a message ... When I laid back down in the bed my HEART was beating so fast that I thought it would leap out of my chest and it took me 1/2 hour to fall back to sleep ... I hope you are all getting a visual of my sprint because I am thinking if you put Joseph and Daisy at the finish line of a RACE this mama could beat even  ......

Usain Bolt ... THE FASTEST MAN IN THE WORLD 




On a final note ... SCOTT SLEPT THROUGH THE WHOLE THING !!!!

Bless your heart!! Praying your call comes soon...until then may you never run out of Diet Coke or Chocolate! :)
I must embarrassingly admit that during whatever "spare" time I had over the past weekend...I caught up on your blog. Right from the beginning. :) And after reading all of that...Your faith and willingness to "step outside the box" for the Lord and His children is even more inspiring now!

Love it!! And I love that your husband slept through the whole thing. I'm praying "your call" is coming very soon.

Love in Jesus,

I remember being the same way waiting for my Joseph!! Then when that call really actually finally came, I was in total SHOCK. It took me 2 and half years to get it, but TOTALLY WORTH THE WAIT!!! I actually told the attorney "I love you!!!" I'm sure she was glad to hear that :)

Just remember there is purpose in everything under His will. He's got ya.

Much love to you and your fam.
Tracy

I didn't see them on the site, but I am blonde...LOL! :)
I have 5 MILLION different ideas swirling and questions for you, not only about adoption, but about a few things I thought of as an attempt to try to help spread the word of Amazima and 147MillionOrphans... :)

Angie Walter said...

Oh Gwen I just love you! I just got to read up on your latest posts...we met you in Franklin at the conference and a few days later I stumbled across your blog I think through Katie's who I found through the Kovacs! Oh how adoption connects us all! Well we are praying for your family and all yall are doing! AMAZING!

Deb said...

Just checked your blog tonight after Tim brought home the City Paper with your article in it! I am continuing to pray...... and remember "To everything there is a season....." This is your resting and trusting season! :-)

Are These Kids All Yours? said...

Praying it will be SOON!!! Jason had a dream last night the we got the call to go get our Naomi even though the paperwork has just been shipped yesterday to ETH. Hey, I believe in miracles!!!

Brian and Mandy Harvey said...

Okay, Gwen, I had the same kind of moment just this morning, accept I was in the potty when I heard the phone in our bedroom ring....I only get five rings to pick it up and lets just say it was going to take an offensive miracle for me to answer it...I did it. :-) Turns out, it was just my mother in law....
