God Found Us You

Last week has come and gone, and a referral wasn't a part of last week. Yet it is well in our soul. We believe in ever-deepening ways that God's in control of our adoption. It sounds silly to say because it's so obvious, but it resonates more and more within us...actually mainly me. Brian has an uncanny ability to trust God more with this than I do, believing in God's perfect timing. It's annoying to this wife of little faith, but comforting to that my man has that posture.

Last week, one of my dearest friends gave us this book, God Found Us You. She wanted to give it to me for Mother's Day, but she couldn't wait. Erin gets our process in ways that we so desperately need. It was a gift last week because we know that God's in process of "finding" our babies.

Thank you for your prayers and fasting last week! We have to believe that while nothing happened last week in terms of our referral, God's doing something to connect our 2 children to us. Last week we were bombarded with emails, conversations, and confirmations that God's not only growing our hearts for our kids, but he's growing our communities hearts for our kids. When that day comes, our babies will be bombarded with kisses and love. For that - and so much else - we are grateful.

Also, tomorrow marks 6 months that we've been on the wait list.
Who knew it would take this long? But grace has sustained us this far, and will sustain us today.
