leaving again. by jamieivey | Sep 3, 2009 | My Story | 14 comments This afternoon will be the hardest day of the trip for Aaron by far. 14 Comments Katie on September 3, 2009 at 1:33 pm Hi Jamie, This is Katie Fox – my husband, Shaun Fox, works as a designer at the Stone – we met once at Potbelly, but you may not remember. 🙂 Anyway – I have been reading your blog for a little while and this post really broke my heart. I will be praying for you and your family in all this – and that Amos and Story can come home SOON! I am really interested in knowing more about the adoption process, your agency, etc. We are considering adoption. Maybe sometime we could meet for coffee or something. anyway – you will all be in my prayers. Michael Patterson on September 3, 2009 at 2:51 pm Soon your whole beautiful family will be together. Great post. We know how hard it is. You all continue to be in our prayers. Stephanie on September 3, 2009 at 3:45 pm My heart is aching in agreement with this post, Jamie. Thinking of you and I’ll be praying today. nancymattingly on September 3, 2009 at 5:01 pm I’m serious, I have been so fervently praying for you this week! I just can’t imagine the swing of emotions you daily contend with – The words you wrote here are a blessing for each of us who have not gone through this process. It helps me to understand how very hard this calling is. I believe each of us reading are called to support you in prayer, and that sure has been my privilege during the last couple of years. I love you so!~ Sandee on September 3, 2009 at 5:44 pm The waits are so hard. Prayers for you and your family…apart and together. kimrhodes on September 3, 2009 at 7:46 pm I’ve been thinking about your family all week. The girls and I prayed tonight for Aaron and Amos specifically. I read his twitter update from late this afternoon and it just broke me. This process is so hard. Just want you to always be reminded of the many people who love you and your family and who seriously and dilligently pray for you on this journey. I know you know that. Love you. Kristy on September 4, 2009 at 9:30 am im fasting and praying for you this morning. Kristy Sarah on September 4, 2009 at 10:18 am Soon you will all be together. I totally get it though- this is hard- the goodbyes are crushing- hugs too all. praying Sully on September 4, 2009 at 11:10 am wow. Sully on September 4, 2009 at 11:11 am wow. what a great post. love the scripture and kristi and i are praying for you six. Fabs on September 4, 2009 at 11:28 am Gosh, I don’t know what to say or pray. Except that I’m glad we have Jesus living to interceed. And that, even though I cannot imagine what you are going through, I think your post resonates with me because there is a father who loves His children even more than Aaron and you love Story and Amos, and if this is how destroyed you are over being separated from them I can’t help but tremble at the awesome agony of his heart for His lost children. And while I know that living in a metaphor doesn’t make life less real or tragic or painful, ill pray for faith to enable you to be comforted by the heavenly reality your lives point to. Ryan on September 4, 2009 at 2:25 pm It’s such a beautiful picture of Christ leaving us behind while He goes to prepare a place for us. It is difficult for Him to know the struggles we face and it is difficult for us to understand why it must be this way. But our faith moves us forward, past the hardships and into His presence, knowing that soon we will be fully united. Jamie, thank you for letting us into your world. Kristen on September 4, 2009 at 4:49 pm Oh Jamie. The waiting is so hard, and the visits and goodbyes are unbearable. Praying them home soon. AT on September 4, 2009 at 9:34 pm I know how hard not being there and leaving after you’ve been there can be. Thank you for sharing this Psalm.
