Well hey there, bloggy community! Just popping in to give you that good old chain link update.Well hey there, bloggy community! Just popping in to give you that good old chain link update.
Yes, it's already been nine months of waiting. I mean, this is officially where every adoptive family has to say, "Um, if we were pregnant, well, we'd be there this month!" But, alas, we are not close. Not even close to close. Yes, I know. That's sort of my phrase. In case you are wondering, we are unofficially around 55th on the list. We have had one referral this month. So, yeah, things are still slow as ever. We just can't think like that. We just have to pray and celebrate those in our agency who do get a referral this month.
This month's verse is Romans 8:38-39 "For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Because after all of this, all that really matters in Christ Jesus, am I right? I am.
The verse is beautifully displayed on our tickets to Portland because, well, we went to Portland this month, of course. I look forward to a post on that soon. Work, well, it keeps me busy.
Here's our chain. Like, woah. Can you imagine this being tripled? Or more? It's pretty!
Someday we will look back on this and smile. Or cry. Or both. For now, we just march on. Month nine, you are in the books!
