On The Edge Of Our Seats

So we've been at the top of the waiting list for a baby boy for almost 8 weeks now and while we've certainly been busy around here, the thought that "maybe today will be the day" is never far from our minds.

We never really waited with our other adoptions because our girls were all waiting for us on the waiting child list. So this feeling of anticipation for our child to be revealed is a new one.

I am thankful that I have not been anxious during this waiting period. I know we will see our baby's sweet face all in God's time (but surely that time has got to be coming soon :-)

It's easy to see why it didn't happen sooner. Had we received a referral a couple of month ago, I wouldn't have been able to travel because of my neck surgery and recovery.

I certainly couldn't hold our baby (can't lift anything over 5 lbs for a few more weeks still) or endure 24 hours of travel right now. God knew that and so he's used this time to prepare our heart and increase our trust and hope in him.

We know that there is a precious little one waiting for us and when the time is right, we will be introduced.

For the revelation awaits the appointed time,
it speaks of the end and will not prove false.
Though it linger, wait for it;
It will certainly come and will not delay.

Habakkuk 2:3

I'm so excited for the day that God completes our family with the precious gift of our little son.


  1. Love your faith! Excited for your new little revelation. :)

  2. What a precious verse that I so needed to see today! Thank you!
