I pray that God does not grow impatient with ME!

God must look at me and just shake His head.  Why is He just not done with me, I wonder.  When will I learn?  To quote a fellow blogger...I am a slow learner.  Really, I am.

Just as I finished the post below.... I got the email from Gladney saying.... all set. No problem, a few revisions will be made and then they will go out to KSB, CIS, CIA, and KGB.  Just kidding on the last two.  

I will learn patience.  Eventually.  Won't I?  

I will sleep better tonight.

Now for a bit of inspiration go to this blog.  She is also the one that said she was a slow learner.  I think not.

As far as "grace", I've got none so I cannot help. We waited nine months for our referral and I still don't know how I did it because I can't even wait for pictures to be developed (or used to - not a problem now with digital)!

We'll be here to listen and scream, laugh and enjoy all the wonderful and stressful times right around the corner! What a blessing to witness for me!

Celebrate!!! :)

Yeah!!! I love being on the wait is such a great feeling to be moving up...I'm not impatient yet....but I know I'll just die to get my baby as soon as I get a pic of her...Seeing her and not being able to get her will drive me crazy...I'll need lots of prayers for patience at that don't worry, we all have our hangups (: We're all on a "leap of faith", so I feel God smiling down every time we try and control it...take care, Kristi
ps..where's your recipe???

I can't tell you ANYTHING about patience. Everyone has said that I will HAVE to get more with this adoption but I really don't think I have. I think I have just learned other ways to cope and have stayed just as impatient!

CONGRATS. to you!!! You've must be so excited!!! I love you post! You couldn't have worded it better. I DO wonder sometimes if God doesn't look at ME and shake His head! :) Yeah!

I just found your blog through Lori. Yay, I am excited to have found it. I have a new Ethiopian daughter who has been home 6 months now. I can't believe how fast time has gone! This time last year we were waiting and not very patiently! It seemed like it would never happen but praise God that it did and our sweet Marin was worth every moment we had to wait.
Hang in there, He has a plan! It will happen! God bless, Kristin

Congratulations on this milestone. I hope you all celebrated. I have zero advice for you on how to be a good waiter. I was the worst. It is really really tough. But it passes - I still can't believe it, but it does. You are getting closer every day.

Hang in're so close. Waiting is the hardest part I think. I have to keep reminding myself that God has a special little one just for us...and in His perfect timing, we'll get him.

Easier said than done, I know. Thanks for stopping by though- and I'll be anxious to follow along with your story too!

Now I'm off to make some banana bread! (:
