5000

5000 entrees have been done on my blog. Thank you to all my faithful readers for your interest to my life's journey. I do not know all of you personally but I want you know that I appreciate the time you take to read my "non perfect" English.

_______________________________

Mon blog vient d'atteindre 5000 entrées. Même si je ne connais pas personnellement tous mes fidèles lecteurs je vous suis reconnaissante d'être encore là. Ma nouvelle résolution est d'écrire plus souvent en français. Merci à mes lecteurs francophones (et anglophones) qui m'ont permis de me rappeler que je dois cultiver ma langue française même si le milieu dans lequel je suis n'est pas le plus propice.

Kutless - What Faith Can Do

This song had lift me up during the time we were waiting for our referral, then for our court decision and for our visa. During last summer I realize that this song was still appropriate to help me to face all different challenge an international adoption can bring. Today, I would like to offer this song to all my friends. No matter what happen in your life, keep faith that the future is brighter then the present.

Cette chanson m'accompagne depuis le moment où nous étions dans l'attente de recevoir notre proposition, puis la décision de la court et ensuite notre visa. Pendant l'été dernier, j'ai réalisé que cette chanson était encore appropriée pour m'aider à garder courage pendant les moments difficiles que notre famille à vécu après l'adoption de notre fils. Aujourd'hui, je désire partager cette chanson avec mes amis. Peut importe les épreuves de la vie, continuez de croire que le futur sera meilleur que le présent.



Everybody falls sometimes
Gotta find the strength to rise
From the ashes and make a new beginning
Anyone can feel the ache
You think its more than you can take
But you are stronger, stronger than you know
Don't you give up now
The sun will soon be shining
You gotta face the clouds
To find the silver lining

I've seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn't ever end
Even when the sky is falling
And I've seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That's what faith can do

It doesn't matter what you've heard
Impossible is not a word
It's just a reason for someone not to try
Everybody's scared to death
When they decide to take that step
Out on the water
It'll be alright
Life is so much more
Than what your eyes are seeing
You will find your way
If you keep believing

I've seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn't ever end
Even when the sky is falling
And I've seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That's what faith can do

Overcome the odds
You don't have a chance
(That's what faith can do)
When the world says you can't
It'll tell you that you can!

I've seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn't ever end
Even when the sky is falling
And I've seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That's what faith can do
That's what faith can do!
Even if you fall sometimes
You will have the strength to rise

Late Friday's Confessions

I never wrote about confession but yesterday I had this in my mind so here we are... 24h later.

I confess that I am a terrible blogger. I have so much ideas and I should write more often.

I confess that I should write more often in French. It my first language and I should be not shy to use it even if I know a lot of my friends will not be able to read me.

I confess that the last week was really hard not only for my son but also for me. However, I am glad now that we have found the way to go through our struggles.

I confess that I start my Ph.D this week and it will be more investment then I though it will be. I know it the right things to do for me and my family. I am bless to have a supportive husband but I will have to drop down a lot of free time and enjoy reading methodology literature (just thinking at this topic make me want to go the sleep....lol)

I confess that my son and I miss our family time with Daddy. We were bless to have two full months together as a family and now we have to face the reality that life is also to be back to work for my husband.

I confess that start pre-school was more hard for me then for my son. Since two months I went through all young child stages (infant, No phase) and now my little boy start to become more independent.

I confess that we are still in the "No phase" and I am sick and tired to hear to word NO for everything. I hope it will not last forever.

I confess that I wish I could be the perfect Mommy but as everybody else I am not and I need to understand that doing my best it the most important.

I confess that I choose to see the positive things my son is able to do instead of only the negatives one. For example, I am really impress with his language abilities. After two months he can understand French and English.

I confess that most of the time I do not answer when the phone ring.

I confess that I have meet many wonderful people in my life and I am so glad to have all of you in my life.
