Please Pray

As of yesterday we found out the Makaio is very sick. He has had pnuemonia as well as other respiratiory issues and is being treated for them but we are not sure how he is really doing. He has not been hospitalized which is a good sign of it not being totally out of control, but he is not well. We are at the one week mark of waiting for the Embassy to give us clearance and we have no assurance of when that clearance and subsequent travel dates will come. We've been told it could be any day now or a couple more weeks or the really reassuring, we just have no way of knowing, answer. This just adds so much to the anxiety of the unknown. If you would pray for Makaio's health to improve and for my emotions and sanity to be kept at a more even place I would be so grateful. I feel very broken hearted and it is extrememly hard to watch my baby grow up through pictures. I'll update when I hear anything more. Thank you...

Oh Leah! Bless your heart. What a difficult time you are going through. I will pray for you and your little baby, that the Lord will give him health and you and your family the strength you need to bear this heavy burden.

(((HUGS))) I will keep you and your little guy in my thoughts and prayers! I can only imagine how heart-wrenching it must be to know that he is ill and not be able to be there with him. Hopefully you will have that little guy in your arms, soon!

Oh Leah, I am so sorry to hear that your sweet baby is sick. I'm praying hard for him to be healthy again soon, and for the embassy to get on the ball and get you headed over there to bring him home. I know this whole process has been really hard on you, but God is going to make it all come right and soon! BIG HUGS!!!

Leah, I can't wait to hear when you have that little boy in your arms - in the meantime I'm saying a prayer for you, your family and that sweet little boy!

I'm so sorry to hear this Leah. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Thank you for your comment on my blog Leah. I feel like such a whiner sometimes when there are bigger problems to worry about. I was just having a pity party for myself.
I will continue to keep you and your family in my prayers. I remain positive that this will be a very temporary hiccup and that you will soon be united forevermore with your beautiful new baby boy.
{Hugs}

Oh, PS: Thanks for telling me about the problem with my blog. I changed the background, and I think it is fixed now. The old one must have been deleted by the creator or something.

Nadine said...

Oh Leah, I hope very much that Makaio will be in your arms and heading home soon. It saddens me that he not there already. What a test of strength and faith you must be going through! Hang in there and I will be keeping you and your family in my thoughts. Hugs.
