A lot of people have been asking me lately what's going on with the adoption. The answer.....we're now in the "waiting game". Russia has our paperwork, so now we wait. And wait. And wait. I've never been so thankful for being busy all the time. Why? It keeps my mind off of the waiting. Most days, the waiting is easy (because we are so busy most of the time), but other days, when I have a quiet moment to myself, it's excruciating. When I allow myself a moment to really think about my child just lying in a crib all alone, it's sometimes more than my heart can take. Then God reminds me that He has my child in the palm of His hand, protecting him/her. What more could a mother ask for? How joyous the day though when my child is in my arms! One month down.....5-7 months to go!
Please continue to pray for us! This is such huge task that God has called us to. It's much larger than we ever could have dreamed, but God continues to meet our needs as they arise. Pray that we continue to trust God to provide.
