the wait

The waiting is probably one of the hardest parts of the adoption process.
There are only so many projects we can do, at home, to keep our mind off of the wait.
*  Our home study is finished
*  Our nursery is sooo close to being ready
*  We are pretty sure that we have an agency.
*  We received a call today from our social worker with a "possibility"
The one thing that goes hand in hand with a small possibility is a BIG risk.
The text message said to "Guard you heart."
I'm not really sure that I know how to do that!!
Adam and I need to do some serious talking and praying tonight.
In the meantime...I'm just going to continue working on the nursery...

"Waiting is not just something we have to do until we get what we want. Waiting is part of the process of becoming what God wants us to be."
