On the Journey With My Chosen One!

I am sure you might wonder why I call her chosen rather than adopted.... well, adopted is just her physical condition, CHOSEN is what we both are to be a family together! God is so rich in His Blessings, and He has chosen each of us from before the time we were knit in our mother's womb to be a FOREVER family! How BIG is that? How BIG is our God!?! Thank you for following our journey and for praying for us as we wait and continue to grow in the love of God! -- Blessings!

Zephaniah 3:17 - The Lord your God is with you. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.

Proverbs 3:5-6 ~ Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths.

More Waiting

Well, if you read the post just before this one, you will see that I said I wasn't good at waiting and that I was probably in for the long haul! Well, and I am NOT JOKING when I say this, the VERY NEXT DAY, I got an e-mail from my social worker updating all those in the Peru adoption process of some changes. Well, unfortunately, I am in for a longer wait... just as I had put in my blog! Isn't it funny how God prepares our thoughts and hearts for the tough news?!? The extra time is on our Government's side.... which is REALLY frustrating! Now when all is said and done and I have my little girl, I now have to wait 2-3 months before I can travel to go get her, this has to do with our immigration laws. Everything else, the entire process, I can honestly say is done for the best interest of my child... but having to wait 2-3 months while I know she is mine and she knows she has a Mommy coming to get her.... that I am just not sure is in the best interest of my child! It is frustrating and has lengthened my time frame quite a bit, so there is no knowing when I might travel. It could be the end of the summer or it could be this time next year... I'll just have to wait on God and TRUST HIM! I am reminded of a song that says "When you can't see His hand, TRUST His heart.." and of the one thing I know for sure, my little girl is His heart and He will protect her, provide for her and love her, and always has, always will!

Please continue to pray, pray for God's timing and for His peace in the waiting!
