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!
