we are barely still here and still waiting

well we are still waiting, no word yet, it has been 5 and a half weeks of waiting since they called the day before we were supposed to travel,it has been very depressing and i have been trying to understand all of this,i am trying to rest in HIM and that He is in control, we will probably hear about her sputum result week 9, mid august, if it is neg i assume we travel soon after, if it is positive she stays for about a year more, i'm sure i will not have a nervous breakdown... sure... so we would love any pray warriors out there to pray for a negative sputum for our little 4 year old daughter mahlet who knew we were coming for her and we still haven't showed up, thank you


  1. Can't imagine how difficult it must be to go through what you are having to deal with. Praying for you and Mahlet--may the test results be NEGATIVE and you be permitted to bring her HOME soon.

  2. Tara,

    I will pray diligently for her and that she can come home very very soon. I will also pray for your strength and hope, as I cannot imagine that one could handle this alone.

    Thinking of you,

  3. I WANT Mahlet HOME!
    Praying for you to be able to LEAN HARD!
    This stinks, what's the bright side? You have a girl waiting for you - and you know her, as God knew long long ago that she was to be in your family and we're all children of His...HOLD ON SISTER!
    heavy sigh,
    BIG HUG.

    Stay packed!

  4. Im so sorry you are still waiting. I am praying for sweet Mahlet to understand the wait and have faith in her little heart that you are coming for her :) HUGS!!

  5. Oh Tara, I'm so sorry this is happening. May God hold you up during this time. Your family is in my prayers.

  6. We're praying! So sweet of a girl needs to be home with her family!

  7. You are not forgotten for a minute. Praying for your little girl, and all the little ones stuck. It's so discouraging, I really had hoped the powers that be would have seen the light by now. This wait is so awful!

  8. We are praying with you for a negative and speedy test result so you may pick up your sweet girl ASAP! We are only at 2 weeks since the culture was started, passed court 7 weeks ago and we also have another little one waiting for us who did not have to have the culture. It's torture. Hang in there!


  9. oh i'm so sorry your wait is so long! i'm sick over the injustice and know our prayers will be heard!

    love mark shultz! thanks for posting that!

  10. I'm praying for you guys! I know this wait is so tough and am thankful you have the Father to rest in. I'm so sorry you are having to go through this!
