Hard day

I know I'm supposed to be floating on cloud nine- we leave to meet Maria in a little over a week. But instead, today felt like a dark cloud was hovering above me.  My kids are battling colds.  It is really hot in the house. I had a migraine all afternoon and it still won't go away.

On top of these things, I'm anxious.  I don't want to fundraise.  I didn't know it would be like this.  I don't want to ask people for help.  I don't want to ask people for money.  I don't want to hear them tell me they can't help.

I just want to bring Maria home.  But there stands this looming financial burden- $15-20K.  Where is it going to come from?  What am I supposed to do?

Praying today.  Pleading with my Lord.  Reading the Word.  Lord, take this burden.  Lord, provide for our needs. Lord, give me peace.  Lord, take this migraine.  Lord, give me strength.


  1. Thinking of you, friend...Standing with you and lifting your needs up to our Father in Heaven.

  2. I will have you in my prayers!!! Hang in there, I pray that once you see your beautiful girl you will be re-energized to get this adoption done!!!


Thank you for sharing your kind words!
