Two Months Down...

Picture of Number Two - Free Pictures - FreeFoto.com

Today marks two months of being on the "official" waitlist... though, truthfully it feels like we've been waiting since the day we sent in our first application, the weekend of Thanksgiving last year.

And truthfully, it feels like we've been waiting much longer since it has been many years that we have been praying and waiting on the Lord for children. But, even in the midst of the waiting, we continue to trust in God's sovereign plan and perfect timing. We believe that He is orchestrating every detail needed to bring us and our child or children together, and we won't be a minute late (or a minute early, though that sounds a little more tempting!).

I mentioned to Don that I wanted to do something special to celebrate our "two-month date", and this is the email he sent me while at work today.

"Special date tonight. Be at my office at 4:30. I already called the Ethiopian restaurant, and they said we don't need reservations."

Wow- I can't think of a better way to celebrate!

Ohhhhhhhhhhh. (That's all I can think to write because that's what I was saying out loud after reading your post.) I echo what Rachel said...praying with you as you wait. And so JOYFUL that your wait is coming to an end sooner than later. And so glad you guys had a fun Ehtiopian dinner tonight! (That was more like an Awwwwwwwwww.) Love you both so much and can't wait to love your new little one(s).

Wow. In some ways I can't believe it's already been a year since the application. So glad to be waiting with you.
