We got our numbers for September. We are currently #10 for a little girl and #7 for siblings. I'm really praying for a ton of movement this last quarter of the year. I know, God willing, our referral will come eventually. The hard thing is knowing that there are so many children waiting for a mommy and daddy. I know that the process is in place for their protection, but it's hard to think about them waiting. I understand the process; they don't. I have a roof over my head, food in my tummy, clothes on my back, and am surrounded by lots of love. I hurt for them. The hardships they go through...the loss. I rest in the fact that God is in control. He knows the day and the hour when each of those children will be united with their forever families! This time of waiting makes me think about what God must feel like right now. Knowing all the pain that we go through in this imperfect life...how He must long for the day when we come home to our forever family with Him. But once again, timing is everything. Only He knows the day and the hour and it is perfect.
Bill and I will have been married for 23 years. He is the love of my life and I thank God every day for him. We have 6 children, ages 22, 20, 18, 16. 10, and 4. Our family is in many different stages of life with three in college, one in high school and our youngest two at home. I am a home schooling mama who loves God and my family. We will be bringing home our 7th child very soon....a sweet 6 year old little girl.
