Patience is NOT one of my virtues and I hate to wait. In fact I am a rather impulsive woman. Therefore I always seem to find myself in forced seasons of waiting. As I sit here today I really thought that I would be frantically running around like a chicken with my head cut off preparing for travel but alas no TA....UGH. But I will rest in the fact that God's timing will be absolutely perfect so I will continue to wait. To make my heart ache even more for my sweet boy we received these precious photos last week. We had sent a package to him and the orphanage was kind enough to take some photos of him with the package. Finally, he smiles and I do believe that he is already a pro on the cell phone and evidence that "he loves snacks" is proved in the pic (look at that face with the grapes). I certainly hope that the hotel has some grapes for my boy.
Tommorow it will have been exactly one year since I saw his face for the first time. It has been a very long wait to have him home but I was thinking this morning that his wait for a mommy and daddy has been much longer. I ache for all I have missed in his little life but I know that my God will redeem those years that we were seperated. We only have a short time before we are together and I cannot wait for that day when I see my precious son face to face. So as I approach the one year mark of when my life's path unexpectedly collided with a little brown eyed boy I rejoice at the gift that I have been given once again to be a mommy. The goodness of the Lord overwhelms me!
