So strange……

June 14, 2008 at 3:59 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment

We’re settled into the states and are back on our time zone and all our laundry is even clean. We’ve eaten all our favorite foods and I even got a little teary-eyed when I went grocery shopping because I was so blown away by the choices, the climate-controlled environment and the amazing sanitation! (Thank you, Target!) But things are not really the way they should be yet. Two of our kids are not even on this continent. That is strange.

At this point, we’ve only really known them for a few days (although Tague met Phillip in February). So, it’s not actually tearful or heartbreaking emotionally that they aren’t here yet. Our home still feels ‘normal’ to us. But we all know something is missing. In our hearts there is a growing affection for these two little boys – so in a way different than we’ve ever felt before, we miss them.

We look at the pictures and try to image what life will be like with them here. Kelsey and I were shopping yesterday and picked up a couple of baby books for Zach and some sidewalk chalk for Phillip. It seems good to be preparing in small ways like that. We can’t really DO anything to make them get here faster. It is very much in the hands of the lawyer, the courts, the judge, the social worker – and, most truly, in the hands of God. We are praying that He will make our path smooth and move our case along in ways that are unexpected and can only be attributed to His intervention and favor.

For whatever reason, we’ve had a hard time uploading pictures to facebook, but here’s a webpage with our stuff on it. (Warning: there are hundreds of pictures. That’s what you get when you take 4 digital cameras in your group on a major trip!)


(there are two pages on this site – Passion Kampala and iweb.

  1. Dear Hardings,
    We have been praying for you on your journey to Africa and back. We are overjoyed that you were able to meet and spend time with your boys! The pictures are incredible, I feel as though we we’re with you every step of the way! We will continue to uphold you and the boys and wait beneath our Kings feet with great anticipation as His plan unfolds. Thanks for showing us God’s glory and greatness through it all!
    Lovingly, the Kretsinger’s
