Leaning on the Everlasting Lord

Not a whole lot of news.  Many are working hard to get Melissa a passport and Visa to go to the Dominican Republic to have her surgery at the end of the month.  So far, more and more obstacles mount but I know and trust in the faithfulness of our God.  From the medical aspects of her care, I have confidence that the Lord's will is being done. 

The aspects of all of this that I am having the most challenge with is feeling the call to be Melissa's mother, but not physically in her life to accomplish that.  I do not feel that any struggle for this child would be at all for her benefit.  So, I am sequestered to the sideline, while I watch another bond with her and even begin talk of adopting her as well.  This is just not an aspect that I was prepared for and don't know how to handle the emotions...yet.  My plans as of tonight are to go down to Port au Prince soon and just be there with her as much as I am allowed.  If she is to be in my life, she will be and on that I have to trust.

The scripture in the picture says, "Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you."
1Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
Hebrews 11:1


  1. Oh, Jenny. My heart is breaking for yours right now. You continue in my prayers. - Becca P

  2. With all the prayers that are surrounding this little girl and your family I can't help but believe that God's will for this child will be accomplished. I was there to watch those heartstrings develop right from the beginning and can only imagine what emotions you are feeling right now.

    I am so glad that you are going to be able to go down in a few days to be with Melissa. You need that as much as she does right now. Let me know if I can help in any way.

    Love you friend.

  3. Our prayers are with you. I am so glad you are able to get back down there to be with her.

    Bondye bon tout tan. Bondye beni.

  4. God always has pleasant surprises...
    He may not come when we expect but His will will be done...

    Thank you for what you are doing.

    I am praying for you, yours and her.
