But these thing 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 am so impatient. I always have been. Now is no exception. I fill out a piece of the paperwork and I have to wait for something that may be taking longer. I found the above quote and it resonated. I have to remind myself that my child/children will not be ready until the perfect day. I am trying to be diligent and finish the paperwork but not be impatient. I can almost feel the soft curly hair in my hands. I can almost hear the reassuring sleeping breathe of a baby. God knows best. I hand it over. What is to be will be. All at the correct moment. How selfish of me to want it yesterday. Somewhere a mother is going to be separated from her baby. Why wish that time away. I will get a lifetime with this sweet child. It will come soon enough. In the meantime I feed the need to hold our child by seeing other families get their referrals, court date, and bundle of joy. One day it will be our turn.

So please keep blogging. It is wonderful to follow the adventures in a hectic happy life....
