I'm sorry I have not updated in a few days but I have not felt much like writing. Bridgett and I went to Jinja, spent the night and had a great time at the Amani Baby Cottage. We spent two days with the kiddos. Yes Bridgett picked out about twelve children that she knows for sure God has called her to be mommy to. Each time I visit the cottage becomes more special. The kids have started to remember me. They come running now when they see me at the gate screaming Auntie, Auntie. I think if I could stay at the cottage full time I would be able to handle the loneliness I am feeling.
I don't want to sound woe is me but that is how I'm feeling. I miss home and my kids so much my heart aches and yet I have this amazing blessing sitting right beside me. I know if God calls you to it He will see you through it but WOW does it hurt.
I have never been away from my children for so long and just knowing I have the possibility of two or three more weeks makes me sick to even think about.
I promised I would never be one to complain once I got here, I knew it was a process and that was ok......well I had not experienced this kind of loneliness before. It's like being alone in a crowded room. I miss America, my husband, kids, family, american food, the smells, the sounds, driving my car, all the things we take for granted everyday....that's what I miss.
Well it won't be long and Bennett and I will be home, each passing day brings us one day closer to the day we step off that plane and onto American soil.
Keep us lifted in prayer our court date is on Wednesday for our verbal ruling. Most importantly please keep Scott and the kids lifted up, they are going through just as much as I am only in a different way. Also please pray for safe travels for Bridgett, she returns home Wednesday evening. I love and miss you all.
