Then Fed-Ex shows up with a package with two CD's- one had updated pictures from when our agency met our son on their visit at the end of May/early June. The other may be a movie- having trouble opening it. Normally I would be thrilled to get this. Today it was bittersweet. I just wanted to cry more. I feel like I have done everything in my power to get him home as quick as I can, but I still feel like I am failing him. I want to keep the hope up for a July 1st gotcha day, but my hope is fading away. I know miracles happen. I am not giving up hope completely unless TA does not come by Friday. Consulate appointments are filling up fast though from July 1st-July 11th. Pray with me that these children who need to come home to get the medical care they desperately need can come home sooner rather than later. If we miss the July 1st gotcha- it will be July 15th. We not only miss Reid's 6th Birthday and have to send another cake to the orphanage, but we will miss Elijah and Jonah's 5th birthday- the second birthday we've missed due to travel and the celebration of Lena's 1 year gotcha day with our family. That's just hard on a mom's heart. I feel like after getting our photo album at the end of April he is probably starting to wonder if we are really coming. I know God has a plan and I know it is in His timing, but I know this could have happened and am praying it still will.
