I try really hard to think positively. Honestly, I do! Today, though, was really hard. Cynthia emailed me to tell us that one of the children we were waiting for had been placed with her forever family. This was our 2nd rejection. Nobody likes rejection. It makes you feel less than worthy. It makes you feel like there is something wrong with you. What was it about our home study that made them look passed us? Did we do something wrong? Is the fact that I had cancer give them 2nd thoughts? Should we have answered a question differently? We have no idea.
Regardless of all of this, I still believe in God and I still believe in His plan for us.
On to other news in the Dodson household...we've moved!!! We are now living in Port Neches! Chase is working for HEB and he loves it. I'm working for a local dentist and so far so good, 3 days into it! :) We had Zoren with us the last 2 weeks and we definitely stayed busy with swimming, the beach, Nana and Pawpaw's house, the movies and just hanging out! The house is so quiet now. Even the dogs are having to adjust to the change!!! We also had our first visitors - Chase's mom, sister and my beautiful nephew!
I'm also happy to report that my dad's bypass surgery on July 13th went beautifully! Now the healing begins! He's still in some pain and had his staples taken out yesterday! EEK! It hurts me to even think about it! I just pray that he continues to take care of himself and doesn't take his heart for granted. I should start thinking about that too!
I'll update again soon with any new broadcasts or news! Thank you so much for your love, support and prayers!!!
