This time tomorrow...

Do you remember the story in the Old Testament about when the Israelites were surrounded, dieing, without hope? The prophet told the King "this time tomorrow" things would be totally different. The King didn't believe him. 2 lepers were sitting outside the gate and came to the conclusion that if they stayed, they'd die, if they went to the enemy, they may die, but at least they would be doing something. God cause the enemy to hear the sound of a great army as the lepers went and in the confusion the enemy destroyed themselves and God totally changed the situation. The King didn't get to enjoy it even though he heard what happened and actually died. I don't want to be like the King. I believe to see the goodness of God in every situation and choose to believe He is working on our behalf and Hannah's. It doesn't matter how things look, it could all look 180 degrees different this time tomorrow.

Got this from Robin today. "Hannah adores her family book (the picture book we sent to her) - it's what she takes to sleep for naps and bed every day... it's very cute how she says Day-DAH in such a sweet little voice... Mommy is what she is saying :)"

OK That just made me cry. I know you feel like you can't get there fast enough. My heart aches for you, I know how hard it is to wait. :(

I have been exactly where you are and know exactly how you feel. The waiting is so hard especially when you are trying to figure out "WHAT THE HECK IS TAKING SO LONG????" But you are in good hands and if Robin is there, she is a mover and a shaker and her team is better than I ever imagined. We're praying for you guys to get a travel date asap and Little Hannah to get her mommy and daddy as quickly as possible.
