News from today

Josh has decided to go back home so he can work for a couple weeks, while we wait for our court date. He will be leaving tomorrow. I'm very sad to be left here without him. It will be hard to be so far away. I tried to explain it to Malika this morning, but she didn't understand, both the kids will be so sad when they realize he won't be coming back right away.

The kids are doing better. Malika is starting to talk to Kaylee and play with her a little bit. She still asks everyday if we are bringing her home, I try to explain, but she doesn't understand time. Justus cam say Kaylee now, and yesterday he gave her a hug before we left the orphanage.

I'm having a really hard time with being here so long. I'm very ready to come back home and live life normally again.


  1. :( That stinks, Crystal! I am so sorry! I feel so sad! I can NOT even imagine what you are going through! Hopefully it will go by quickly. God will bless you for your obedience! We love and miss you all!

  2. Crystal, All I've been able to think of is that this will give Kaylee time to get to know you and the kids. Then when she is taken out of her familiar surroundings, she'll be more comfortable with her new family. I'm praying for you all.

  3. I'm so sorry to hear about the long wait for court (though glad you were able to get a different judge and sooner than July) We will pray for you while your husband is away (and his safe travels) that God will watch over you and give you favor with the officials there. Adoption sure brings a person to their knees-seems like there are always so many obstacles but God is bigger! I pray He will give you His peace that surpasses understanding. Kaylee is so sweet:)

  4. We spent some time praying for y'all at church this morning. Sorry to hear that Josh has to come home... I know that will be hard for you. We'll be praying that the Lord give you both strength for this time.
