Joy Comes in the Morning

Right now, I am struggling mightily not to become discouraged in waiting to bring Ezequiel home.
He is waiting. He needs a family. The only thing that stands between Ezequiel and his eager family is government action. The Philippines must do their part and the US must do their part. I am a bit down right now. Looking at pictures of our sweet boy does not, at least today, encourage me. It only makes my heart ache.
Maybe tomorrow I'll be able to look at our baby and feel the joy of knowing he is coming soon. Today, he is far off and I'm sad.

"Sorrow only lasts for a night but joy comes in the morning" Psalm 30:5


  1. Praying for peace and comfort in your heart. Keep looking at all the ways God is mightily moving you to your sweet boy...praying for the governments to move quickly for you!

  2. Hang in there Nikki. Our prayers are for patience for you and your family. You'll cherish him that much more when you have him in your arms. Tha Casallas family.
