searching for bliss - adoption status update

people have lately asked us how things are going with the adoption.  are we still waiting?  any news?  have you heard anything?  when do you think it will happen?

today i was reminded it's been 6 months.  6 months since we became an active waiting family for this second adoption.  6 months since our book was available for review.  6 months since our profiles were put into the mix for any matching opportunities.  6 months since we've been ready.

even though 6 months have passed we don't know anything more than we knew back in june.  we pray for our sweet baby every day and we hope that she and her tummy mommy are well and protected from harm's way.  we pray that God helps the sweet baby that He has intended for us to raise find their way to us.

we think about her often.  we even talk about what she will and won't like, if she'll like a certain song, or to play a certain game.  dax will say - you think she like it?  i say, yes, yes - i think she'll love it.

however, regardless of how long we wait - we know that its God's timing and not ours.  while we'd like to have her here with us now and we dream about having her here for Christmas, or the new year, or will's birthday, etc. - we know that it's going to happen when it's supposed to happen and we find comfort in knowing that.

God knows best and he knows yesterday, today and tomorrow.  when He's ready for her to be here - she'll come home.

Waiting is hard but you are so right that God knows what's best.

I just found your blog today and went back to read your adoption story! Thanks so much for sharing! It is encouraging to me in our wait (11 months in) to read other's stories.
