Still in the Tunnel...

...Wait!  Is that a light?

Sorry I haven't posted any cutesy pics lately of my kids all dolled up and looking amazing.  I don't think I would win the mom of the year award for this past week.  I'm doing good to bathe them and keep junk in their hair.  I randomly find Josie hanging out in the pantry with brown sugar all over her face or (like yesterday)  motor oil, deoderant, and salad dressing.  They've been eating cornflakes and oranges for probably 2 meals out of the day.  Momma's anxious--and exhausted--and not very entertaining lately.

But, today I was told that the elusive "paper" that's been the cause of all this stress is now in the hands of my social worker.  The last paper we need for Keira should be available tomorrow as well as the final--FINAL papers I ever have to ask Elizabeth for!!!  Yay!

So if those things can be in our hands tomorrow, then my lawyer can file for court and we'll go either Wednesday or Thursday.  Friday is a holiday, and probably Monday too so I really am hoping it all comes together.

I've been trying so hard to cast my cares on the Lord.  There is so much that weighs on me and some days and I can't even remember what home is like.  I know I miss it--painfully.

So Darren and I are starting to talk about travel plans and tickets.  I still probably won't be home until the last week of June.  One more month.  I can hang on that long, right?


  1. Jacky, Yes you can because Christ is in you and will renew your strength. As you wait upon Him, believing in Him (even though not perfectly), you "shall run and not be weary" and "shall walk and not faint" despite what your tired body and mind is telling you!

  2. I know you don't know me, but I have been keeping up with your blog of your ministry over in Africa. I lived over there myself for a long while and I just want you to know that you are an inspiration and that you CAN do all things through Christ! Your little ones see Christ through you each and every day even If you feel like you did a lousy job. Take comfort in all of our prayers. You can make it through this trying time and the Lord sees your hardwork and He will reward you for it. God bless you, you are in my prayers.
