Yesterday was tough in our journey to bring home TJ. We knew that getting a phone call like this was a possibility, but any mommy doesn't want to know that their baby is not feeling well. Our little TJ had pneumonia this week and although he's doing much better, you can't help but feel helpless. On top of that, we received updated pictures; TJ is experiencing eczema on his beautiful face which is causing discoloration on his cheeks. I know they are taking amazing care of our little guy at Hannah's Hope, but I'm not there. So, all Steve and I can do is pray. I have never had to rely on God so much in all my life.
It brings me to tears to know that my beautiful boy is a world away, he's stuffed up and itchy, and here I am sitting "comfortably" in my home. I can't tell you how much I want to hold him and do what I can to make him all better.
So, I'm getting on a plane in about ten days, but then the overwhelming feeling that I will not be able to bring him home then took hold. I know God has a plan, and I know this is a part of it. It's just not easy during moments like these.
The good news is that he's growing and gaining weight, and I am sincerely excited for that!
Please pray for our little boy. We love him. We want him to feel better. I think that's all any mommy wants for their babies.
