Adoptive Moms in process--Does this look like you?

This is my new "position of choice" in the evenings. I wonder how many of you adoptive-moms-in-process can relate? Look at the supplies all in place--a brownie, a soda, tv remote control, my planner, cell phone, and of course, my laptop--lifeline to all that is adoption related! My fingers itch to blog! After dinner the desire begins and intensifies as bath time rolls around, until finally with all the girls tucked in and prayed for, I can relax and live vicariously through another mom who is actually holding her little one!! Or see photos of someones trip to Ethiopia and Hannah's Hope, read about their hotel, the food, what to pack, or just enjoy their story of how our great God brought them to this place of desiring to add to their family from around the world. What an awesome thing to be able to connect like this!

Hebrews 10:24-25

24And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. 25Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.


  1. Hi Cristie! I am laughing because we look like twins! I am sitting in my bed, computer on lap....I almost thought a camera was on me. Love your blog!!! I am so excited to follow your journey to Evan. He has the most kissable lips. Just wanted to let you know you will be in my prayers and on my heart on the 4th! I am praying favor and peace! God is going to do great things for you.

    * the story about #1 and #2, God is just soooo good! You'll have a friend for life and so will Evan!

  2. My position is in front of our computer that sits in our main living area! That way I can browse my fellow sister's blogs & have an eye on anything else! :) I love blogland!!!

  3. Stumbled over to your blod afte following a trail..... Such a beautiful place. I had to laugh. It was a laugh of understanding. Ive decided to follow along on your journey and find some comfort in your words. thank you for sharing.

  4. Thanks for making me feel better about my nighttime ritual. I don't know if a blog exists that I haven't read. I get the feeling my husband thinks it's a little compulsive. At least I know I'm not the only one. Praying for that court date!!! -Susan Pettrey

  5. Girl, you are not alone. I have had to switch to my desk top for a bit and I miss my spot on the bed or on the couch.

    Enjoy every moment, when your little guy comes home you will be running in every direction and not get a chance to sit and rest.

    Praying for court for you guys.


  6. OH my goodness! I was LAUGHING SO HARD! You cracke me up!! Does Rusty give you that annoyed look when you "assume the position"? haha Matt is getting a little sick of me and my like in blogland! The anticipation you speak of as the evening unfolds is priceless and sooo true! Too funny! Thanks for sharing!!
