Just Keep Waiting, Waiting, Waiting ...

This is the part of the adoption journey that I dread the most ~ the waiting. You know, when you've done all you can do and now there's nothing more you can do ~ except wait. Oh, but in those times of waiting God has revealed much to us. He has never left us to fend for ourselves. He has walked through the valleys with us. He has opened our eyes and hearts to His plans. It's no secret that a new list of medical special needs files came out last Thursday. It was Friday when we found out, and I was a bundle of energetic nerves through Saturday ... but we never got 'the call.' Sunday I began to stop and listen to my heavenly Father, and He had so much to say. We don't know when He will reveal our daughter to us, but we know His plans are best. And so we wait.
Today, please remember the family of our superintendent who unexpectedly passed away Saturday. He was a very kind, humble and godly man. I know his service today will be difficult, but my prayer is that it will also bring comfort and hope to those who do not know Him.
Your worst days are never so bad that you are beyond the reach of God's grace. And your best days are never so good that you are beyond the need of God's grace. ~Jerry Bridges~

I was hoping you would see her face this week too.
I know the waiting is painful but...
"be still and know that I am God!"
He is preparing y'all and your little girl!

Praying the services for your superintendent go well today. Praise God for this man's service and the lives he touched!

Sorry for the hard weekend.
Sometimes i think God givess us a "couple of bad ones" so that we can REALLY appreciate the good ones.
You Baby is coming.
I am so glad that you are allowing all of us to tag along.
I am excited.

I'm sorry you are struggling waiting. I know the feeling. We just finally turned in our book to our adoption agency, so we are finally officially waiting as well! I'm not doing so well with it either....
Hugs to you friend!
