Continuing to Wait

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!


  1. You have been in my thoughts and prayers. Praying for your beautiful boy, and rejoicing that he will soon be in your arms. Sending you love

  2. I just know that the years J has waited will melt once you hold him in your arms! I know it's cheesy - but time truly does heal wounds and longings. My heart aches for you to meet this new member of your family too! Another son! You are so blessed :-)

    Can't wait to see you!
