New Photos to Ease the Pain

It is hard to believe that as of this past Thursday we have been waiting 12 weeks for EP, and as of Friday it has been 10 months since our referral acceptance paperwork went to Korea. Never would I have imagined that we wouldn't have EP by now. I actually thought we would have our travel call by this point. The wait has been getting harder every day. I was doing fairly well up until recently. When we were back in Maryland I was working, traveling, spending time with friends, going to Bible studies or prayer meetings, or taking Korean language lessons. Then I was busy with the move. But now that things have slowed down and we are settled in, I am feeling the sadness and loneliness of a new place and I am really missing all my friends. But even more so, I am wanting to have Joshua home. My heart literally aches. I am bored, restless, and feeling very alone.

But there was a bright spot last week. After the great update we received (previous post), we got new pictures!!! Not sure how old he is, to me he looks younger than in the photos we were emailed at 14 months, but older than the last official update photos we received (see this post).



I think I may have my photos to embarrass him with by showing them to his friends when he is older :-) Gotta love that elephant outfit! ;-)

Please keep us in prayer regarding this EP situation.

I can only imagine how hard this wait is now that you are in a new place and all you have to do is to wait.

But that is a pretty cute face to gaze at in the meantime.....

Oh my goodness!! He is so cute and I really like the elephant! I love his sweet smile! I am praying that we get a new picture of Parker this month with him smiling (still have never seen his smile). I'll be praying that you get good EP news this week!

Oh Becky...I am praying that you receive EP so so soon! God does know what we need right when we need it though. He's pretty cool that way. :)

I love the little elephant outfit and his so cute little face...
Joshua's, not the elephants... :)

I'm praying you get EP soon, too! I can't believe how long you have been waiting. This has long ago passed the point of ridiculousness. Being in a new place is hard, too, and your mind wanders and you don't know anyone yet. In good news, Joshua is looking way adorable. I agree that he looks younger in these shots, but the elephant may have been distracting me. :)

So adorable! I agree he looks to be younger than the last lot of photos. We are so lucky to be getting so many photos sent through. I am hoping for one this week for our son's 1 year birthday.
