We are patiently waiting on a court date. We have had a very difficult time getting one thing. The first few weeks being home really weren't so bad. But now each day that passes, I miss the boys more and more. Words just can't express how badly I am ready to get back to them. Their room is ready, their closets are loaded, and preparations are in the works to complete their playroom. The only thing lacking is just them.
There is a huge piece of me that feels crummy for celebrating Christmas. I feel guilty that I get to enjoy the wonderful holiday at home with my family while they are thousands of miles away in an orphanage, no family, no gifts, no Santa. I know in my heart that God has a perfect plan and that his timing is one of perfection whereas my timing is out of impatience. I know that even though we wont be with them this year for Christmas, God is with them. I also know that even though they are in an orphange this year for Christmas...next year will the most special Christmas ever!
So in the wait for a court date (which we are praying hard is going to be in January because I don't know that I can make it to Feb.), I want to focus on the reason for the season. It is not the gifts and Santa, but rather the birth of Jesus. He is the one and only reason for the season. I hope you all are having a wonderful Christmas season!
