Eight in '08

Today we've been logged in eight months for our next daughter. It amazes me to think we were logged in about eight and a half months before we got our referral for Lindy. While that wait seemed eternal, it is nothing compared to what we are facing to bring home this child.

There are days when I wish I could hold an object like a Magic 8-ball and ask it to give me an answer as to when we'll receive a referral or peer into a crystal ball to see us holding our daughter for the first time. However, I don't put my faith or trust in Magic 8-balls, crystal balls, or anything else but God. I trust that He knows all the answers that swirl around in my head and know He will reveal them in His perfect timing.

"Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me..." John 14:1

I am thinking of you today. Each month is one month closer...although it sure doesn't feel like it right now!

Sending love your way!!

Said a prayer for your today. We serve a great God and we have to remember always.. He knows what He is Doing. And we don't.

I know what you mean. I think oftentimes if I just *knew* the day; I'd be "ok" if it took 3 months or 3 years. It is the not knowing that is so hard!!

But, it is not for us to know and we are not to ask. God will bring our girls home when they are ready!!

Happy 8 months!
