I've been meaning to post. Really, I have.
I'm not sure what keeps me from it. Maybe I dont like to blog when nothing has happened. It's a reminder that we are still waiting for our babies. Still at #5 on the waitlist.
I think I have gotten better at waiting to ask for updates, so that's good.
Oh, but time..... time just seems to move so slow sometimes.
This clock made me think of how I see our wait at times. Distorted and blurry.... fun, huh?
I wish I was blogging more about how wonderful this wait is and how glorious everything seems. Maybe today just isn't my day for that. I do have those days though....really, I do.
I always know that God is in total control of our adoption. Maybe that's why it has become a bit easier to sit back and not obsess about the waitlist numbers, or referrals, or $$. I have given this adoption to God because I have faith in Him. He's brought us this far.....
I know that we are on the path God intended for us. There is a LOT of peace in that.
So I will just hold on to the fact that it wont be long before we see our babies faces and know their names. It wont be forever....it may feel like it, but it wont be. Thank you JESUS for that!
In the meantime we will continue to prepare (I need to post more pics of the nursery and my decorating ideas). We will continue to enjoy our family time with just the 4 of us. Continue to love sleeping in, sewing until 12am, running to the mall on a whim, etc....
Also, we will continue to fundraise to bring those babies home!
This coming Saturday is our Birdies For Babies golf tournament. We are excited to join with another One World family for this awesome event. We have golfers and hole sponsors....we are thrilled beyond words for all the support!
So if I can just stay focused on the golf tournament, Jennifer's baby shower, kids and holiday gatherings, work, sewing for my Etsy shop, and the nursery.... before you know it we will have our referral!!!! Sounds easy enough, right?
