8 Months DTE

 Time is flying!! While in some ways we know this wait will be (and is) long, it's crazy to think it's been 8 months already since our dossier went zooming across the world on an airplane.  We added one more link this week to Little IC's* chain in his room.

This month I chose to put our chain in the bouquet I got hubs for our five year anniversary.  It has 5 red roses and 13 roses total (since we were married on the the 13th). I found it pretty appropriate that the little man's chain go right in the middle of our wedding roses, yes?

The verse is Psalm 25:4 "Show me your ways, O Lord, teach me your paths."  

That chain's not getting shorter any time soon!  It won't be long before it's hitting the bed and we'll have to wrap it up and over the window.

This month the wait has been happy. I think in some ways it's easier knowing we're not close to a referral. We don't sit by the phone hoping the call will come. We don't fret about the last push for finances. We just pray earnestly for our son and keep going with life. I think it will be much harder to live like that when we are in the running for a referral.

Til then, though, we just keep waiting.

Mostly patiently.

  1. Praying with you while you wait!

    1. Thank you, Reanna. I can't tell you how much it means to have people praying for us.

  2. The waiting is so hard...
    Don't know you, but stopping to pray tonight for God to give you the strength needed for this journey.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Kara. Most of all, thanks for your prayers. Looking forward to following your family on your blog.
