Rotten News

I just found out that we will not be traveling to get the girls as soon as I hoped. I know it's not a huge deal, but I just feel sick inside, like this is very ominous for things to come. What if Nastya doesn't make it until we get her? What if the extra few weeks mean her brain is damaged?

So many worries and too much time for me to dwell on them!


  1. Hang in there Cathrine! God knows and His timing is perfect. Be still and know. I know how hard it is. All summer I just knew we would get that golden ticket and be traveling... it never came... I wanted to be there and back before the end of the summer... it never came... John's Dad passed away at the beginning of August... if we had been on MY timeline, we would have been across the ocean with no way to be there for his family, no way to say good bye... our golden ticket came a week after we got home from the funeral. Praying for your girls, and for God's timing in your journey. Hugs!!

  2. Oooh....I'm sorry. Give me a call. I'm home with sick ones today.....

  3. So sorry you got rotten news. We submitted out dossier March 30th and we think our girl is available in late April or early May. I keep wanting news on submission but then don't want it to be bad news. Oh the roller coaster of emotions. Do you mind me asking if the SDA found something wrong with the dossier, children not available yet, or if the SDA appt. are running way behind in weeks? You can e-mail me at mcmmullins@gmail.com
