Today we officially hit 9 months of waiting (39 weeks). I didn't think we would hit this point. We waited 9 months with Vietnam before we switched and I really thought this one would go faster. HMMM...That is what I get for thinking, right? This week has been a tough one. They have decided to close court this year. They are just waiting a little later to do it. will close from Aug 21st to beginning of Oct. (have to love the open date!) Anyway... It looks like 2 referrals were taken back due to some issues with an orphanage director. VERY SAD! That made us bump up a few on the overall list but I THINK we stayed the same on the request list. (REALLY THOUGH WHO KNOWS!!) A little bit of sunshine...there were 2 referrals given this week. A very young sibling group and they waited 16 months for their referral AND a baby girl and they waited a year almost to the day! I am certain our wait is at least a few more months away plus things seem to slow down whent he courts close. Still...KEEPING THE FAITH that our little guy will be here for Christmas.

Don should be home tomorrow afternoon! YEAH- I am ready for him to be home. I think he is ready as well.

We are finishing up our Bible School tonight and have no plans other than running around to do tomorrow and then Sunday we are going to the zoo. Hope the weather is nice and not too hot.

Better get some things done. Gotta get some groceries also! UGH- :)

Hope you all have a blessed day!
My sister sent this to me this week...she knew I was struggling! (from a song by Babbie Mason)
***God is too wise to be mistaken, God is too good to be unkind, So when you don't understand, When you don't see His plan, When you can't trace His hand, TRUST HIS HEART! ***
