Struggling...

Today I struggle...honestly, everyday I struggle...I struggle with the knowledge that there is a beautiful little boy who is waiting in China for his forever family.  I struggle with the knowledge that his best friend is home with his new family and his last 2 best friends have families paperchasing for them.  I struggle with the fact "our" sweet, beautiful, precious, CREATED IN GOD'S IMAGE, wonderful Dalton still doesn't have his forever family.  I struggle with all of the new pictures we receive of Solomon's buddies and I'm excited to know that 2 of the 3 that are left have their families but before we know it, those pictures will only have Dalton in them...no Solomon, no Kaden, no Parker, only Dalton... I struggle with the images of this sweet one begging me for a mommy...with the images of him watching us leave the orphanage with his best buddy...with the images of him standing there so confused and sad...

Oh, how I wish it was us...I wish we could adopt him. Believe me, there have been many tears shed but God has CLEARLY, soooo sooooo CLEARLY told us 'NO'.  I still don't understand why He's told us no but I trust His perfect plans and I trust that He knows exactly where Dalton's family is.  I wonder...are they listening...do they hear God's calling...are they afraid...will they be bold and brave enough to trust God's calling of stepping out in total trust and faith....where are they...who are they...  BUT in all my wondering, God knows...He knows the answers to all of those questions and I have peace knowing He loves Dalton so much more then I ever could and that He has him in the palm of His hands!!

So I ask again, please....please...I'm begging you...continue to PRAY for him...continue to spread the word...feel free to share my blog posts about him...it works...it really does...that is how Parker found his family...it was by all of you spreading the word!!

Aw Stacy...that is NOT the news I was wanting to hear. We gotta chat. I thought there was a glimmer at one point. I'll be FBing Dalton again and on my blog, too. He is just too sweet and I know your heart must be breaking after seeing him and hearing his sweet voice asking for a mommy! HUGS my friend!

He is sooo cute. Have you heard about CCAA allowing you to use your SAME dossier to go back and get another little one? It's true. :)

Anita...we had a few beautiful glimmers of hope but fear struck and they backed out. Yes...let's chat soon!

Trina...aren't you cute...LOL...BUT IT'S YOUR TURN :) Oh, how I wish he was ours, though!!

Hope is not fading for him. I refuse to accept that. Even if his forever family is not right around the corner this little guy is going to do something great with his life because he has you and the families of Parker and Kaden praying for him. And who knows, maybe one of the boys families will go back and get him with this new rule it won't be so hard.

But I haven't heard his sweet voice and touched his precious hands. But I know how much your heart is hurting for him to find his home and I will continue to pray for that home to find him.

I will be praying for this little man, he looks so sweet and innocent. God has a plan for his life, a plan of purpose and love and of good things. We aren't in a position to add to our family. The economy has hit us pretty hard. If God laid that on our hearts we would be right there first in line. He looks precious. God has a blessed family that brings him home!!

Posted it on my blog. Praying his family finds him soon!

Our God is a God of hope. Praying Exodus 14:13-14 for Dalton...let's stand and see the salvation of the Lord!

Oops, that last comment was mine (Linda). I was accidentally logged in to the Mission Romania blog...helping the Jejerans with it. :-)

Stacy,
I think about this little guy all the time and pray for him. I pray to God to change my husband's heart and mind. I actually went to your site to see if he had his family yet, because then I could try to let it go and know God had another plan. But, I read your heartache and feel it too. Hugs and prayers, Mary

Wow. This story breaks my heart! What a privilege to be used by God in such a HUGE way for this little guy! You may not be told "YES!" by God to go back and bring him home, but know that you have a precious role in helping him find his forever family! You are quite a gift to this little Dalton! Keep on doing what you are doing, and God will keep doing what He is doing......and some day (hopefully SOON) all will KNOW Dalton has been matched with his family! FOREVER! Sweet boy! And your heart is beautiful, my friend!

Posting on my blog. When I began to ask God to give me His heart for the orphan, I never dreamed my love could run so deep. The images of this sweet boy are etched in my heart and his name is on my lips as I am on my knees.

God's peace and God's will
