One Year

A Year is really a very short time, in the scope of things, and a lot can happen in a year. OR a year can seem like a LONG TIME when you are waiting - our counter popped to a year today - a year waiting for the next child God has for us. That is amazing - considering our papers were in China only 6 short months before we got Chloe's referral. (And we thought that was a long time!!!) Just keep praying with us and for us - God's timing is perfect!

Hugs!! I'm sure the waiting has to be so hard. What is the expected timetable now? I know it changes, but do you have an estimate?

Every month brings us closer... I just wish they would speed it up a little. Maybe after the Olympics are over it will. We can only hope and PRAY!

~linda, waiting 15 months and counting :)

I keep thinking one of these days I will be reading that you are getting ready to travel.
I hope I will soon.
If they do not speed things up soon, tell them Mr.Brian will be getting in touch with them.That should get things going.
I'll keep you in my prayers.

Wow! Maybe you should name her Patience, since you have both been waiting so long for each other.

(I am still determined to name your next child.) :)

Stefanie said...

Wow, one year! You are so right, His timing IS perfect. Thank goodness we don't rely on our own, what a mess we'd be in!
I am sure on this side of your referral the wait can be unbearable, but once you see her precious face for the first time, the wait will be a distant memory :)
Happy One Year!

It is amazing it only took 6 months the first time. I can't believe how much it has changed. Happy 1 year! We'll get there eventually.

Karen said...

It's hard to believe how long referrals are taking now. At least you have 1 year behind you now. Praying the wait isn't too much longer.

When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
~Deuteronomy 24:19
