Almost complete...

It's been almost 9 years now since Ive been apart from my daughter.  We've been trying to get her over here with us but the process takes forever.  We are hoping and praying that in less than a year she would finally be with us.  I know she couldn't wait to give her little brother a big hug and a kiss. 

For a mom, its been a dreadful 9 years to be apart from your child that long.  But God is good.  He sustained me from the my longing to be with her.  I thank God for my mom and my brother and sisters who took care of her for me.

"No temptations has overtaken you except what is common to man, And God is faithful, He will not let you get tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, He will also provide a way out so that you can endure it"

1 Corinthians 10:13

  6. I'm so sorry you've been separated from your daughter. I can't even imagine! That verse is a great reminder, I had a rough morning, and although it was nothing in comparing to what you've gone through with your daughter, it's a great reminder that God is there with us.

  20. That verse in 1 Corinthians is so encouraging! Its one of my favorites. In this dark world, its comforting to know that God will always pull your through whatever you're going through. He provides just enough for us to endure. And in the process of going through our trials, we learn to lean more heavily on him, such as what you're doing. I'm praying for you lovely, that is such a hard thing to have to be away from your daughter for so long.
    Thank you for your thoughtful comment on my last post as well. You couldn't have put it better...it IS torture! I keep being tormented by the thought that I won't find someone like him again. Thoughts such as "Have I missed out?" But I just have to fully trust God with everything, even my desires. He knows what I want, and more importantly, what I need. So at least I can find peace in that. A quote that's stuck with my lately is: "Worrying is telling God you don't trust Him."

  30. Unfortunately I know all about what you are going through. My family is originally from Mexico and even when my mom first came here, she had to leave us until she could arrange for us to come over. This happens so much and so many families are separated. I can't believe how many years it has taken you. And I do hope and pray that soon your little girl will be with you.
