Sad Days

I've been feeling sad these last couple of days. We received news about Twinkie's situation in Ghana that was disappointing and troubling. We don't know what this news means in terms of him joining our family. We want him to...and we are praying in the end it will all still work out....but my mind has begun trying to prepare my heart for disappointment. I feel numb.

I keep going back and forth between thinking that I want to just curl in a ball and sleep for a while (hoping that the situation would be resolved when I wake up) and that I want to just hop on the next plane to Ghana to scoop him up and love him...even if it is just for a little while. Unfortunately, neither one of those options is really viable at the moment.

I can't share the details here...but there is a little boy in Ghana who's in a tough situation. Please say some prayers on his behalf.
