Walking Away for a Bit...


I need some down time and so does my family. We need some time when we are not wondering about our adoption or focusing on waiting. We need to just be ' us' for a while. All is well, no worries. It's just that sometimes this process is too much and sometimes it wipes out more than just me.

I know how exasperating the wait can be and everyone needs a break.
Your family needs you in top shape. There is no need for explanation. Please be safe and come back healthy and happy.

Praying you are able to breath in some fresh air with your family while God works amazing things in your life ...because that is what He does best!

You know where to find us! :)

Love,
Robin

Hi Kim,

I have gone for awhile too! Sometimes we just need to remove ourselves from the agonizing wait and all of the non decisions with agencies and the CCAA. I feel for you!!

May your family just enjoy being the wonderful family that you are now. God has you and your family in the palm of his hand. He will open the doors for your little girl when the time is right. She will be the one you have been waiting for.

I pray for peace and wisdom for you all!

Hugs,
Jody

I think it is something going around, as you can tell my blog is getting to the point of very lack postings....the wait is really getting to me, and I am running out of things to say, and it makes me sad, but I know it will happen....so taking a break some myself...take your time and we'll be here when you return and are refreshed...we love you!!

The Byrd's Nest said...

Oh I continue to pray for you. I am praying that God gives you a peaceful heart in this most tiring wait for your precious baby.

Chloe's Mama said...

Hey! I'm praying for you too, and I'll be here when you want to return. I'm proud of you for knowing when to step back a bit--you give so much to others that it's really important not to neglect yourself or those who are closest to you. Hang in there!

Heather said...

Hi Kimberley,
Just some extra hugs and encouragement. I scrolled down to catch up and read about your visit and your sweet grandmother - I have prayed for her everyday since you originally posted about it and I am so sad she is in so much pain. My grandfather went through this just before we brought Hannah home. SO challenging knowing the person you love so much is struggling so badly.

I am hoping the prayers help and I look forward to when you return from your break but also wish you peace and rest while you spend time away.

Love,
Heather

Alyson and Ford said...
