still waiting

Be strong, and let your heart take courage, all you who wait for the Lord!! Psalm 31:24

Still waiting. The uncle came to court, but unfortunately had an invalid id card. Please pray that he is able to get a valid card before Friday. The good news is that our case has been left open, and he just needs to take his new card to the courts.

This mothers heart is sad as I long to go get my son, but will meditate on the above scripture and hope in Him. I do know that His timing is best.

No worries. There is a reason for this bump in the road. I just know that your waiting son will be in your precious arms very soon.

Sweet Emily,
As you draw near the Lord, I pray you will find peace and rest in His presence. He is our security. He is in control. He is trustworthy. His plans are perfect. And I cannot wait to see how His story for your precious new son unfolds.
Love, Blessings & Prayer from Hong Kong,

My name is Kelly and I just want to tell you how God has used your blog that I found through the Wheeler's blog to draw me to Ethiopia. We have 5 boys and adopted a little girl from Guatemala. I am now ready to adopt from Ethiopia. My husband is not yet ready for that calling. I am praying he will hear the call as well and we can go to Ethiopia for another precious daughter. I just wanted you to know that your story is making an impact on people you don't even know. I pray God's blessing on your sweet family. And I wish I could know you in person!
