Wishful thinking on a beautiful day...

Wishful thinking on a beautiful day...
I think it is okay for me to keep dreaming and maybe experts will tell me that what I am doing is harmful, but I say... if you want it and it is in God's will... claim it! "You have not because you ask not", said the word of God.

So here I am at home on a beautiful day that is full of splendor, blue skies, clouds moving well, just a bit of clouds, sun shining brightly as if it was celebrating. Oh what a day. This is the only real part of my beautiful day but I will not complain.

I am thinking about my future son.... a son that has his father's last name, one that, if we are allowed will share the name Joshua Ellis, or Joshua Thomas ( aka) Tommy, or Joshua Thomas McKinley... both names somewhat after my grandfathers and my dad. My husband does not want a son named after him because his name is so unique, LOL. Actually it is very common and he wants our son to have a unique and somewhat common name. Ahhh... to think of the smile that my son will have, bright, sunny, and lovable, a bit mischievous, but super intelligent, sweet, and mannerable.

God please bless us!

Hmmm... some would say you want a perfect child, I did not say I want him to look like my husband and I. I said he would have those qualities...share the moment with me, I am dreaming here, nothing wrong with that. I am sure that our son will have a beautiful smile no matter what and who ever God sends to us to be our son, we will more than likely be happy and ready to be parents to a beautiful boy. Oh today was a nice warm day, not too hot. So I could imagine our son playing outside with our dog Eboni, and Eboni loves to play hide and go seek so she would cheat, lol. I could hear our son saying, Ebby, you cheated again! LOL. Oh I am so excited, I wish jobs in our area and the economy would become a lot better.

Rain brings change...

"Rainy days may come... but rainbows and sunshine always will follow...life is a challenge, but we must have rainy days to allow us time to gather our plan of action, execute it, and continue to move forward... Encourage yourself daily!
Hold on, do not give up...do not grow weary....you must equip! Rain does not mean it is the end, it is the beginning... it is a change, the beginning of a change!"

Wishing for Perfect Days?

Perfect days please come! :-(

My husband and I have not lost our dream of adopting a child, as of our current situation, we are channeling our focus upon our studies and working hard to excel in our studies. I feel that it is a way for me to forget about adoption and stop thinking about children but no matter what I say, think, or even do... I find myself in a place where I am thinking about my child, a child that is mine and I am holding him, comforting him, playing with him and our dogs, watching my husband and him play catch in the Autumn leaves. One of my best friends told me to get my heads out of the clouds and concentrate on school, focus on preparing our home so that when we do begin the adoption process that all systems are go. I agree, but my mind still wonders, my mind still ponders upon a thought or to pause for the mere second of a child. Why is it that when a woman's biological clock ticks very hard, that is all the body wants? The problem is when the body can not produce it, the mind wonders and I know I am off subject here, but I am honest.

My graduate studies professor and I were discussing women, age, and children. My professor told me that she is in her early 40s and she has no children, she is married but she wanted to accomplish her goals in life. She told me that some people think that women who wait to have or adopt children in their 30s and up are not the norm. My professor said that it is perfectly fine for a woman in her 30s and up to not have children. It is okay to ensure that I accomplish my reasonably set goals in order to create a stable life for my future children.
I am so elated to have this discussion with someone who is near my age and has heard the old tails. lol

I know there is no such thing as a perfect day... but one day... I hope to have that perfect day, that day when I can longer imagine about my little boy. One day when my little boy is flesh and blood and he is playing outside on our acre of land, taking him fishing on a pond near our home, taking him to Winding Stair Mountain so he can say... " Whoa Mom, that is cool!, Look Dad, that is cool!"
I look forward to the day of reality when I can say my son's name. When he shares our last name and when I can look into his bright and curious eyes and say, I love you my son. That would be a prefect day for me. So perfect days please come is what I pray.

We had to put everything that we wanted on hold until we regain our financial strength. Which is better to struggle without children than to financially struggle with children. I want to afford weekend trips with our children, let him visit his sisters, go on summer vacations, go to my sorority's conferences and while I am away in meetings, he and my hubby can explore the zoos and do the things the sorority has for families to do! :-)/// ( Sings..."Ohhh, I can dream about it!" )

My husband has told me that if we think it, it shall be, it shall come.
If we ask God to make a way, we need to ask God to bless us financially, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, physically, and psychologically to be equip and ready for our child to come home to us. To have a house full of children that belong to us both and still have room for his daughters to come and visit and spend time with their new siblings. Of course...doubt has began to creep in and settle... The back of my mind is saying...Time is not on my side...age... money is not a sound investment now. If not now, it will never be...doubt,and fear are my mortal enemies.

Have a blessed day, be a blessing, and you shall receive a blessing!

Blessed Hannah
