"Do not let your hearts be troubled.
Trust in God" (John 14:1).
I'm a bit of a planner.
When we go on trips, I like to google everything possible and print off various maps, places of interest, restaurants, etc.
So, this whole adoption thing is tricky for me.
The unknowns are very difficult.
Today was a bit of a big deal.
Today was Seber's third Ethiopian court date. If the results are favourable, we could get issued our adoptive family travel court date before the courts close mid-August. This is our hope and prayer.
Today we received update pictures of him. He's simply adorable! We long to meet him, to hold him, to love him, and to give him a forever family.
I'm trying to trust in God and His perfect timing. His thoughts are not our thoughts and His ways are not our ways, but I know that He knows what is best for us.
I’m going to put it into God’s hands, start living on God’s plans
Going to do the best I can, that’s all I can do
I’m going to put away my doubts, somehow it’ll all work out
And I can rest easy now that I’ve put it into God’s hands
