The Wait Is Getting Difficult!!! And COLD!!!!!

Yes, you guessed it...we are still waiting on our Favorable Determination Letter (FDL). I read a blog of a family waiting for their son from Ethiopia. They had this verse on their blog....

"But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, be patient! For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day." Habakkuk 2:3

I'm ready to bring the elders of the church over to my house when the mailman comes and lay hands on him and pray that he will deliver my letter soon!!!! I don't want him to be scared of me or anything...I already practically sleep by my box!!!!

What a perfect verse for waiting on God. It's so true...I want to be in God's perfect timing, not my own.

Great Stories!

I just saw that Focus on the Family had a show about adoption on Thursday, January 10th. You can go to their website and listen to it! It's well worth the time for all adopting parents (and anybody else). My husband and I sat on the couch crying while listening to some of the stories. Even though waiting is hard, we feel so blessed to be going through this journey right now. Our hearts are full.

Adoption Update....NOTHING:(

We are waiting for our "FDL" (favorable determination letter) from our fingerprints. We have been waiting over four weeks now and it could be four more. I get so excited when the mail comes and quickly look through all the envelopes....then I get a little sad. I need to remember this is all happening in God's time not ours. I'm getting so excited to be a number on the waiting list!!!
