When I started this blog, some years ago we were waiting.
At that point we were about to begin on a journey of infertility that would bring many roller coasters of emotions. We were about to join the many to whom building a family didn't come easy.
Now, in many ways, we are still on the same journey, albeit through a different method, that of adoption.
We've learnt some things along the way, cried some, laughed some, loved lots.
In so many ways we've come so far from that first blog post. And in some ways we have so far to go.
I think we're all waiting on something. A job. A husband. Our children to arrive. Our home to sell. Our illness to be beaten.
And part of God's plan is for us to wait, to learn to trust on His timing and His plan for our lives instead of planning our own path.
What are you waiting for?
Know that God is there. Know that in the waiting He wants us to bless His name, to serve Him with our whole heart.
We met with the director of our adoption agency today. It was the next step before we sit around and wait some more.
We had some questions answered, some ideas presented for us to think about, some things figured out in our minds.
It was a good day. I was nervous, as another person probes into our lives and deteremines if we are fit to parent littles. God was gracious and the meeting went well.
It got us to thinking about the possibilities that God has for us, things we haven't dreamed of, maybe. But He has a plan and all of this is in His will for our lives.
All of these thoughts swirl through my head. This blog is my place to reuminate and think and write about the journey. We are thankful for those who've come alongside of us and encouraged us as we wait. Thank you.
I'm not sure how many people read this blog or if lives are touched, but I do thank you for stopping by. While you're waiting.
