You may have heard that our estimated wait time to bring our babies home is 14 more months. Boo. We don't like that. Our agency is conservatively projecting 5-7 more months until referral and then an additional 6 months until we travel to bring them home. Ugh.
So... We are asking you to pray. My ever-so-faithful-in-prayer mom recently emailed me the following,
Re: waiting room?

"I’ve had one word appear over & over & over since you originally told us that the wait was going to be longer... EXPEDITE. That’s been my continual prayer.

Lord, we want YOUR will to be done;
we want the children you have planned for April & Brian. But if there is any way that this can be EXPEDITED, that’s my prayer for them..."

I had another friend email me, "I personally defy time lines; I ask for the impossibles."

We've also heard from our agency that we could be in the "wait room of referrals" anywhere from #3 to #30. In my hubby's words, "3 is good! 30 is not." Therefore, we could get our referral very soon. Or it could be as they expect.

Would you pray that the God who controls all time lines, births, matching of families, and "gotchya days" brings our babies home sooner than expected? EXPEDITE. There are 2 little ones out there who need to be Diaz's. EXPEDITE.

Yet, "not my will, but yours be done."
