Still Waiting...

Just wanted to update the blog since it's been awhile...ok, 4 months to be exact! There really is not much new going on, just waiting which is something we will be doing for quite some time! They have placed children with their 'forever families' (just LOVE that name) from March 1st to March 24th, 2006 just in this year alone, so as you can see not much progress. It's almost the end of August so to recap, in 8 months they have ONLY done 24 log in days and our log in date is March 5, 2009, so still another 3 years to get through and that does not mean 3 years of waiting but much longer! We are at peace though and know that waiting is what we are meant to be doing right now. Someone said it perfectly in a message board for adoption and it was something like ' As parents we will do just about ANYTHING for our kids and right now, this daughter of ours in China needs us to wait for her, so that is what we will do'!! Just love that!!

It was a year ago today, that God really started speaking to us about adopting our started at a bible study the evening of August 21st, 2008, and then again He spoke to me through a daily devotional that was emailed to me that Friday morning of August 22nd and here we are today a year later! We have a LID (log in date) and are waiting for our daughter! God is so good and we know He will bring us the perfect daughter in His time!!

Thanks to everyone for their continued prayers and support!
We love you all!
