Officially waiting!

One step closer to adding a little one to this group!

Who knew that I would be so excited about waiting?  We are now officially n the wait-list.  If you could read my journal entry today, it was on waiting.  I was at a good spot with waiting.  I understood that I was operating on God's time.  So I get home.... and guess what, I am informed that we are on the wait-list.  The irony of waiting to be on the wait-list is not lost on me.  Each step of waiting gets more challenging.  I imagine that waiting to "meet"  my new little one/s will be much tougher.  But, what about waiting for the court date, and then waiting to travel, once you have seen the eyes of your new child?  In CBS this weeks lesson had the undercurrent of patience. "God's timing is not ours. Waiting on God's timing grants us perspective and reminds us Who is in charge." Was He speaking to everyone or just me? So begins, the next phase of waiting. 

So the count down begins.  If and when we get close to 6 months, I may start going crazy, again.

You knkow, isn't that the truth? We look back and it seems at every step that God was teaching us something, once we'd accept it, come to peace with it, and move on, He's answer our prayer.

What an amazing God we serve. Praying for little Lucy love!

Congratulations! You are official. Now you can tell people that you have been "officially waiting" for x amount of time, but you started the process x amount of time ago, and they will think you are officially crazy. But I will know exactly what you mean. Congratulations.
