Break the Silence!!!

I have 36 followers on this blog!!!! AWESOME!!! I love that there are at least 36 people that are helping us bring our boy home..... I wanted to thank all of you for following our journey.

One thing I never anticipated was how alone this journey makes me feel..... It is a feeling I cannot explain..... I have 36 people reading my story, I have 6 others under my roof that love this little man, I have quite a few people (strangers included) who have donated to help bring my son home, but somehow.... I feel alone.

Am I the only one?? Do others feel this way too??
I get some great comments from people I tell (in person), but mostly I get doubt, reservations, and confusion.
People just do not understand why I want to bring this child into my life......
I try to explain it..... Sometimes I succeed and other times I do not......

Please break the silence..... I am feeling lost and discouraged (not in anyway giving up, but needing someone to help me through)..... Please leave me a comment.... anything just so I know that you guys are out there!!!

Also please visit my new fundraisers tab at the top.... we have a ton of ways to help us out while getting some of your Christmas shopping out of the way, but we also have an awesome giveaway going on.....
Please help this Momma get a little encouragement.... I miss my boy tons this time of year!!


  1. Hi Jaclyn
    I'm not a big commenter but I am definitely reading and praying that that precious boy will be home soon!

  2. I'm following too, Jaclyn. Your new blog set up looks great. Don't feel discouraged or alone. You, your husband, and family are answering a call from God and that is a great place to be.

  3. I felt the very same way through the whole process. I had never felt so alone in my life. Thank heavens for the internet and the ability to connect with people who are going through the same thing you are! It's just a foreign thing to most people. Since they haven't had the same spiritual experiences that you have, they have to see him in person, with your family and feel that connection and know what it's all about. Once you have that boy home, it will all change. People tell me all the time how they can tell that Anya was meant to be a part of our family. Your challenge right now is just to stay close to your Heavenly Father and rely on Him completely.

  4. I also feel lost and alone at times. It seems that I try so hard and rarely know what to say. I see others who have 100+ followers and wonder why I can not do that.
    I love that we both have three girls and that we both had have a daughter named Brittany (thou we spell it differently - We spell our daughters name Britney)
    I think your blog is beautiful and I just want to let you know that you are are cared about and that you are not alone :)

  5. I read but I can't think of cute comments to leave. But I am HERE!!!

  6. Hey, Jaclyn. Just signed up to be a follower. :-)

    I would echo what Heather said. It is a very lonely time, but I'm SO grateful for the on-line community. Not sure what I would have done w/o them. Not many people you know will "get it". Have patience, and like Heather said, it will all change once he's HOME!

    Love the new blog design too! Your designer must be very talented. :-)

  7. Love you lady! You're doing great!

  8. You know I'm here reading and I'm loving your every post! Luv you!!! ♥♥
