It's Official, we are "waiting"

Okay a major milestone in this adoption process has been reached (no doubt on earth day woo woo). We are officially on the "waitlist." So now the Ethiopian Gladney workers work to match us up with a child. This is a wonderful time to celebrate and yes wait some more. However, we trust that our child is out there waiting for us too. We are not alone in this journey many anxious parents wait to hear about their new child.

We are grateful for our agency, for each member and the role they play in bringing families together. Join us in rejoicing this occasion, and pray with us that we would be content waiting, that children would continue to be placed in wonderful new homes, and that everyone involved (case workers, judges, agency workers, new families, old families and babies) would know God's sovereign mercy at this time!

We are soooooooooooo excited!

Why don't you update your own blog rather than leave silly comments on mine?
