I guess for some it is hard to hear encouragement from others that are relying on their faith to see them to the end of their adoption. For me? I am so thankful for those people who can read my fear, sadness, brokenness, and heartache to hold my little guy and still encourage me with a faith builder.

I have never for one minute doubted that God would see us through this. If I had we would have given up a long time ago. I do get discouraged at times! This is hard!But we know this is God's will for our family. We have no idea how far adoptions will go in our family. But right now we know that God has a plan for us and we are doing our very best to follow that plan. It is hard...He never promised it would be easy!

I do know that this is all in God's timing and NOT in mine! I know that because had it been up to me we would have had our little guy a year ago BUT God had a better plan and we pray that we will soon see his little face. Until then I will continue to pray for him. And I will continue to pray for those still waiting...

I thought the "hurry up and wait" theory was only for the military! I am learning it can be a theme for adoption as well.

But I am reminded today of these scriptures:

For the word of the Lord is right and true; He is faithful in all he does.
Psalm 33:4

When I am afraid, I will trust in You. Psalm 56:3

If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, "Move from here to there" and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."
Matthew 17:20

SO...I am so thankful for my faith that has helped me walk this path for the last 2+ years!
