It's that time of the month...

Cinq, funf, cinco, cinque, wu. Whatever language you speak, the progress is the same--we've been logged in five months today.

Here are just five things I am praying for regarding this situation:
1. I pray God will bless us with a happy, healthy, beautiful daughter.
2. I pray God will MOVE mountains and significantly speed up the process so thousands of children will meet their forever families.
3. I pray God chooses healthy biological parents for our child and that He comforts them during the difficult process of choosing to give up a child.
4. I pray God will help me enjoy the journey.
5. I pray as I bring these requests to God that my faith is strong, evident, and pleasing to Him.
"Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise. Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. " James 5: 13-16
For my friends who are waiting, I am praying for you, too. Thank you to everyone who prays on our behalf. It is a source of comfort.

Once again another beautifully honest post. I believe your thoughts and prayers are shared by so many of us. So thank you for finding the words to post them for us all!! You have been on my mind and in my prayers a lot lately. I will continue to lift you up!! Just remember He knows the desires of your heart and he has the "perfect" plan to bring them to fruition!! Keep the faith! Your sister in Christ, Chris

I join in prayer with you! May the Lord give you the desires of your heart and may you know that he is carrying you through this wilderness of waiting.He will reveal his splendor and when he does, you will forget the ache of the labor just as a mother bearing a child from her womb forgets the pains of her labor! It is the reason that as mothers we will go through this again and again and when we finally hold our beautiful child, we quickly forget those pains and would be willing to do it all over again! I would wait a life time for Maliah now knowing how beautifully perfect for me she is! So, we will pray you through these long days and ask that the Lord would give you a stillness in that time. I pray too that he would allow you to enjoy Lindy to the fullness! You will never again be Mommy to just one child and those days are too priceless to wish away! I cannot wait to see the day that you receive the name of your beautiful baby girl that the Lord is planning for even now and has already named!
