Feeling a little let down

Today I received an e-mail from my facilitator. I had asked him when he thought our submission date would be. He responded that because of the recent and upcoming holidays, and his "place in line" at the SDA probably meant I would not be submitted until the first week of June. I was really hoping to be submitted on May 18Th. If we don't get submitted until June, then we won't travel until the end of June, and I was hoping to travel at the beginning or early-middle part of the month.

It's a test on my patience, and I am failing. I want so badly to be there right now, holding Patrick. But, it looks like I will wait a little longer.

Hold on Patrick, we're coming as fast as we can!!!


  1. Ugh! I know this feeling all too well! It was 5 months between Elijah's 1st and 2nd trip. It usually is on average 3 months tops. But the time came and it was perfect! Because I traveled so late in the school year, I was able to take the last couple months off and don't have to return to work until September!:) Praying that the time goes by quickly for you!

  2. Awww I'm sorry Lyndi :(. All in God's timing. I tell myself that EVERY day!

  3. Everything happens for a reason and this will be one of them - you just may not see it till afterwards :)
    Ours seemed to take forever to get submitted and then we were really caught off guard when we got 10 day notice for our SDA appt.
    Just don't relax too much - you'll be there soon!!!! I can't wait to follow your trip!

    I know these postponements with submission are so hard. I am sorry.
