Well we made it to #20!!!


Today is our 20th month of being logged in . I can't believe the wait has gotten so long and that we STILL have a while longer. But the thing I really can't believe is that I have not lost my mind while waiting for our baby.

I really try everyday to keep in mind that though I may be unable to change this situation, I still have control over how I will respond , I try to take a deep breath everyday and remember that while God makes us wait I have to be willing to listen for the lesson that he is trying to teach me. And through this process I do believe I have learned more patience and I really pray that I have gained more wisdom about life in general. God does not put us through anything good or bad just for the heck of it, there is always something that he wants us to learn, and I pray I am doing right by him, for I know the plans he has for us are far greater than we could ever anticipate. And I know he has the perfect babygirl for us and when he is ready for her to come home , she will.

You are sitting right across from us in the 'Waiting Room' - we hit 20 (or is it 21?) in a couple of days. We have a soverign God and it is a comfort to know that He is not surprized at all about the wait. He will reveal His children to us in His perfect time .... but He deals in eternity and this earthly wait does get long.
Thank you for stopping by our blog and Merry Christmas to your family.

You are a far better person than I was during the wait. Fortunately for me my wait was not nearly what yours is and I was clearly insane. Yes, true, ask the other "crazyone". I admire you for your strength, patience and your undying belief. That will get your through the next couple of months. Yes, it will all be worth the wait.
Much love always.

Congratulations on being 20 months closer. I can't believe how long it is taking either. I'm sure that this will be your year though. I hope you guys had a Merry Christmas.
