explain the all consuming wait for a child you really don’t even know……Yet love with all your heart
I can’t…..it is hard….
With Madeline we did not see her picture until 8 weeks before we traveled and THAT seemed like a long time.
We have been looking at Janie’s picture for over a year now….waiting to see if she is ours…..and now waiting for all the approvals before we can travel to get her. It.Is.Hard…….the not knowing, how she really is….when we get to go….what she is like….how is her health…..the list goes on and on.
So tonight, I’m just having a hard time….knowing that God is in control, yet tired of the wait…….
“You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.”
“Once our eyes are opened, we can’t pretend we don’t know what to do. God who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls knows that we know and holds us responsible to act.” Proverbs 24:12
Oh fudge! You got me crying again! I'm trying to hold it together, but lately these days are hard. I think it's the unknown of the LOA arrival. I know you know what I'm talking about.
We love them so so much already! And they are growing and learning and experiencing life, and we're not there.
Soon. Soon. Soon. Soon our time will come.
