Perhaps a glimmer of HOPE???

For those of you who know, our agency told Tim that we were kicked out of PGN last weekish. I really don't know what to believe anymore. Anyway, our agency emailed Tim last night and told him that our case is back in PGN and our case is moving along quite well. Quite well??? Well was bringing Caroline home by Thanksgiving or at the latest by Christmas.

I've had to totally step out of the race and now God is running it for me. For those of you who know me, I am stubborn and very strong willed. Unfortunately, I didn't let God take over the chaos for me and I kept getting involved by helping Him out. I describe it as a basketball game. I'm out of breath and there's still plenty of time left in the quarter. God is sitting on the bench and I'm about to pass out as I run up and down the court. I keep looking over at God and telling him that I can make it a little bit longer, just sit tight and I'll let Him know when I need to sit down. I'm finally out of breath and I let God in the game.

My glimmer of HOPE comes from all of you guys praying for my family. You guys are bombarding Heaven's gates and God is hearing all of your prayers. I just can't thank each and every one of you enough. My heart is at peace and I know that she is coming home. Caroline IS coming home. God promised her to us and He will not take her away.

My students at school just never cease to amaze me! They are such little prayer warriors! Before we left for Christmas, we did an "open" prayer time and they each prayed for Caroline. My heart was so FULL! There is truly nothing sweeter than a child's prayer. THANK YOU!

Again, thank you and we wish each and every one of you a very, Merry Christmas!

Bethany--I'm so glad you got some news. Not knowing is so much worse than anything else.
I remember so well being where you are right now. Finally sitting down on the bench and letting God go in. And then the peace that came with remembering that Andrew had been promised to me and he would come home. I'm praying so hard for you guys....I can't wait to check in and hear really GREAT news!!!
Hang in there, honey. Caroline is on her way.
