No news

Well, indeed our agency didn't hear anything back when they inquired last week as to the state of the LSC's.
We've hit a wall.
A great big China sized wall.
Did you know that there are big, great walls in China?
Yeah. I know.

But we are still firmly in His grip and have an oddly quiet peace about it.

With each passing weekend in the over 70 days now that we've been waiting we become renewed for what may lie ahead with the upcoming week.
And it sustains us.
HE sustains us.

So we wait and wait and eat ice cream and wait and wait and...well, eat more ice cream and wait.
And of course stare at some outrageously cute pictures of these boys.
Yes I do believe Jacob is pretending to be a kangaroo with fish lips. It's a big part of why we are crazy in love with him. ;)

And that's where we are at right now.
Which I'm sure is right where we are supposed to be.

Cease striving and know that I am God. Psalm 46:10


  1. He will sustain you and soon you will be lifting your arms in praise and thanksgiving!! Trust it will all work out beautifully!!!!

    But oh the wait is so hard!

  2. Praying for God's continued sustaining grace in your wait! And yes it is HARD. Sometimes I think the wait not only develops our perseverance in the Lord, but also our love for our children grows in the process, too. :)

  3. waiting IS the hardest part.. however.. the night before meeting them is even harder ;o) LOL just thought I would throw that one in there for you to laugh about cuz ya know I love ya!
    Praying this is the "THE" week...
