I am not God.

While this may come as no shock to the rest of you it is a huge frustration to me.

I like my way better.

I am waiting.
And not very patiently.

I want my boy home NOW.

I can rest in knowing that God's hand is guiding this whole process
or at least that in His omnipotence He will use the timing for good.
Whether or not I like it.  

So I wait.


I look at facebook and see that someone else has moved on and left us in the dust as far as paperwork.  
And then my peace turns to frustration
and the green-eyed monster comes to hang out with me.  
The tears come and I fail to enjoy the five blessings that I already have.

It comes down to a choice.

I choose to trust God's timing.

Now if I could just get off this dang teeter-totter.


  1. I know....I don't even need to say anything to you. You already know. Looking back on various things that happened in my life, I figured out that God has that perfect timing for every single thing. The good and the bad. I've had plenty of bad and you know what? He still knows what He is doing. I am thankful I am not God.

    I can't wait to hear good news from you soon.

  2. We waited for 135 days for Isaac's LOA. I thought I would go crazy, especially when others who had waited far less time got theirs. Our agency (at the time) was little to no help. But it all passes, as you know, and you will enjoy your life with Alex. But I know it's hard to wait!

  3. You both know all about it! And both of you have inspired us. THANK YOU!
