2 Months DTE

We have been "officially" waiting for two months now for our wonderful Imaginary Child to become a real human with a picture and a story. Unsurprisingly, according to the "unofficial" list we have moved exactly ZERO spots in these two months.

Which we knew would probably be the case.

And so, we wait patiently. We wait on our son. We wait on the Lord. We wait, knowing it could be 10 more months or 3 more years. We wait knowing our son could be alive, waiting for us or he could not even be alive yet. We wait.

In positive news our chain is an actual chain this month--with two full links!! Woo hoo!!


Our church is encouraging us to memorize a verse every two weeks. I found the verse for these two weeks completely appropriate so it went on our link for this month.

Psalm 20:7 "Some trust in chariots and some trust in horses but we trust in the name of the LORD our God."

We trust, not in waiting list or timelines. We trust in the name of the LORD our God. We know he will provide the timing best for his purposes. I won't say we look forward to a long wait but we do know it's changing us in great ways. So we are thankful for this time the Lord is providing us.

We wait... and we give thanks for those who wait with us. Including you lovely people!


  1. Woohoo for two months DTE!! Our three month DTE-versary was this past Saturday. We've got a long wait ahead of us, but nothing we can't tackle with the Lord by our side! Stay strong and keep Jesus at the center! :)

  2. You're doing great on the wait! I can't wait until you're writing a blog post saying it's your 1 year referalversary! :0)

  3. I love this idea!! Wish we had of done this!!!
