We are STILL here!
We are STILL "On Deck!"
We are STILL number TWO on the waiting list!
We are STILL waiting...
We heard from our family coordinator about two weeks ago that it may be the end of September or early October before there are any new baby boy referrals. The Transition Home run by our adoption agency has recently received a group of baby girls, but no baby boys yet. And because of the court closures currently going on in Ethiopia, the Transition Home is really full right now, since no new families are able to travel during this time. So, we continue to wait.
Honestly, its hard for me to believe that we began our adoption journey almost one year ago and STILL have not seen our son's face. We have been DTE for almost 6 months and STILL do not know the child God has chosen for our family. But even though this journey might be taking longer than I thought, it is so comforting to know that none of this is surprising to my heavenly Father. He orchestrated our steps long before we ever took the first one. His plans, His timing, His purpose is perfect.
So, while we continue to wait, I am STILL and at peace, trusting Him fully.
