Isaiah 40:31

“but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.”

I had convinced myself once we had her picture, the waiting would become easier.

I had told myself when we knew she was healthy and well cared for; the waiting would go by quickly.

I had told myself once we had PA and the NVC letter and Article 5, my patience would sustain me.

I was wrong.

I long to hold this little girl in my arms.  I long to celebrate her 2nd birthday with her at the end of March.  And I long to tell her she has a mama, and a baba, and a family, forever and ever.

That’s when I know I have to wait on the Lord.  He has this timing orchestrated and has since before time was invented.  He is preparing our hearts in ways I could not ask or imagine.  We pray for this sweet child every day knowing her heart is being prepared and for that we are eternally grateful.
