Patiently Waiting!

Hey there!!! I'm still here.  And I do not have a court date yet.   I am actually patiently waiting because God is doing SO MUCH in my life right now that I am busy busy preparing to bring Babycakes home.   I am rejoicing for my dear friends that passed court!!!  Valarie and Ms. D!  I am praying for the strength of those that are just waiting and waiting and waiting... Jeanine, Celeste! I am excited for those with new little faces to look at Catrina and Haze!  I am hopeful for those preparing and waiting, Tami,  Trice, Rayshell and Cristina A.  I am in admiration of those that are building there families (way to many to name)!  But I am most overwhelmed by what a blessing this experience has been for me.  My life is out of control right now.  Complete utter chaos, and not in a good way!  But I know that the God CONTINUES to take control of the timing, the finances and the everyday victories that exist in my life!

Nope I am not anxious for a court date.  I already HAVE a date, but right now only GOD knows!!!


But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

NOW REALLY read it!

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

When times are hard it is SOOO tempting to try to find your own solution. I am struggling ya'll!!! And God continues to give me so many joys. He continues to make a way out of NOOOOOOOOO way!!! Why does he love me? Why does he remember me? Because I am his child. Because he will provide for me even when I have not been obedient. His love is the love that a parent has for a child, though they may discipline their child for being disobedient, they still continue to feed, clothe and love that child... Oh my Heavenly Father.... The greatest parent indeed!!!

This young man has a simple message to share!!! Please share it with him.

May you find the WAIT as an opportunity to build strength. Like a runner in training. Use this time to strengthen your faith and know that IT IS because HE said IT IS!




  1. I really needed this more than you know today, Robbin. Thank you for this awesome post.

  3. Good post Robbin,

    I just closed my blog for a breather. If you don't mind me peeking in, I'll watch you guys wait. lol.

  4. Robbin, hang in there!

    this is so much bigger than anyone who walks this path, and it is not by chance that GOD has plucked us from the garden to endure all that comes along with IA experience. Nothing worth having comes easy, and through all the turns and twist in this adoption journey we do know for "sure" we would not change one thing a/b it in the end, or wish for the "perfect" situations!!

    The struggle is real, deep, hurtful/painful at times, and in the end a blessing that amounts to something that can't be put in words or explained to those that just dont understand or get it!

    Hang in there my friend.


  5. Thank you so much for this post! I really needed it this weekend!

  6. I couldn't have said it better myself!!

  7. Another inspiring post. Thank you for sharing.

  8. Robbin - thanks for the shout out and the encouraging words!

  9. I read your blog occasionally...Christine is a friend of mine..and I have followed her journey of adoption. So we are somewhat connected.

    Your post today warranted a thank you for the reminder to Wait Patiently ON HIM! ...and to let you know that someone that you have never met is praying for your strength in this journey called Life! A sermon from this week's renewal service at my church stated "Sooner or Later God is going to make it up to you"...not that he hasn't done enough...but he is aware of your pain, pressure, and sometime the struggle in the we are moving toward the call in HIS service. So day all of this will be a memory of God Did IT for me again and ....your later shall be greater than the past.

    May God continue to bless you!

  10. I'm just gonna laugh at you....and you know why! LOL!

  11. Robbin, I'm looking forward to your great news and can't wait to see her little face!!

  12. Hi Robbin.

    God is good ALL the time. I am praying for peace in your journey and calm in your heart.
