Whenever we get in conversations about Frankie and our adoption process… hardly anyone leaves the following comment out… “I just don’t know how you guys do it… waiting that long? ”  For us it’s pretty simple.  We signed up for this long wait.  We knew going into an adoption from Haiti that the wait would be long.  2 years… dare I say maybe even 4? 

Is it hard?  Yes.  Did we know that going into it? Yes.  Do we wish we could go grab him right now and bring him home? Yes.  Is there tremendous peace in the process? Yes.

This picture says it all to me and helps this crazy wait.  Because in our waiting, Frankie is always found in loving arms.  And because of that reality, there is peace.
