A fast of sorts

As I try to sort out laying down my rights and laying down this adoption, I have decided I need to do a fast. This may sound weird but I am going to fast from this adoption. I found out today that our document arrived at Imagine (the new correctly dated one), so I know we have at least a month solid wait to get our statutory declaration done. That said, I have decided I need to lay it all aside for the month of March. I have not given up hope, but I am laying down the worry, anger, and frustration of this process. This means no more Yahoo group, no more emailing Imagine, no more schedules and timelines and no more blog. Although this blog is not just about the adoption, and it does enable me to write about everything God is teaching me, I think I need a little break. It just goes hand in hand with all the other parts of the adoption. This will not be easy for me as I have loved the adoption community I have met, but for this time, I feel it is necessary.
I am going to spend the time I would on the computer doing all the above mentioned and spend some serious time with Jesus about the direction he is taking Arnie and I. I don't want to miss out on what he has for us because my life is consumed in this adoption.
I am excited and sad to do this. I am excited because I know Jesus loves being chosen above anything else but I am sad to leave the community for a while. I will be back though and I will be stronger than ever! It's like I am going to boot camp or something!
So until next time, you are in my prayers, your families and families to be. May God bless your next month with showing his face to you.

PS If any pertinent info comes up, this will be my only exception to post!


  1. Oh Bekah, I hope that when we hear from you again, it will be "The Post"!!


  2. I think this is a good idea Bekah. Our updated document also just arrived at Imagine and so we're on the same timeline as you. Hope to see you back here in a month with good news (whatever that news may be!) Prayers and hugs!

  3. Thinking of you, Bekah. See you when you get back!!!
