Yes, we're still adopting.
No, we have not traveled yet.
No, we have not heard anything yet.
No, she will not be Caucasian.
No, we do not have a travel date.
Yes, we're still here.
Those are some of the answers I've been giving out to those who are concerned/interested/love us. I know they mean well, and it is truly appreciated but I wish I didn't have to keep saying the same thing over because I wish we were in Africa right now, or better yet, home with our baby girl. I remember being 10 days overdue with Curtis, but I knew he'd come out eventually. With our adoption, there are so many unknowns - specifically in regards to dates. I don't know if this is wrong for feeling this way, but I think I really need to get away from everyone/everything for a few days. Maybe we'll go camping next week?!
I pray that God will forgive me for my lack of patience. I pray that He will forgive me for my bitterness, grumpiness, etc. I pray that I will put my trust in Him and His good timing. Forgive me Lord, for failing to do that over and over again.
"Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. They say of the LORD, 'He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust'"
