We have been on the wait list for only about 3 weeks and I am already ready to go pick up my child! I know, I know it is going to take time and I know the Lord's time is perfect. BUT that still doesn't make me want to wait any longer! Maybe if I could even just hop a plane and go visit Ethiopia and the orphanage I would have a little more patience. That would be easy to set up right?
I do fully believe that His plan for our family is perfect and His timing is perfect. I also know that looking back over the course of my life even the things that were hard or that I struggled with He used them to mold me and steer me in the right direction. SO I know that everything is in His hands. I just feel very idle right now. My longing for our child is even stronger. I feel as though a piece of our family is missing. I don't know what she looks like, how tall she is, what her age is or much about her at all. I just she has been growing in my heart and I desire to hold her in my arms.
Another verse that I hold tucked in my heart: but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.... Isaiah 40:31
