I want my kids home NOW!
I am pretty sure this is the desire of every parent who is adopting.
We do not get everything we desire.
While looking over my e-mail recently, I realized I misunderstood our coordinator about the wait time.
She told me the the average wait time before the new investigation was 10-12 months.
Well this new investigation is adding on A LOT of time.
It is looking like 18 months is a more realistic wait time.
Seeing as how we have not even gotten our commune documents yet, we are gong no where fast.
U.S. Immigration has also slowed down on issuing visas.
I am a little confused about God's plan right now.
I am not sure why it needs to take so long.
We are so ready to expand our family and so ready for Irelyn to have siblings.
Another 18 months honestly seems unbearable.
I am trusting that God has a better plan than I could even imagine.
I know that God keeps His promises and this wait is for my good and His glory.
We are praying for peace as we wait on His will and feeling so blessed to have two beautiful children in The Congo.
2 Cor. 4:8-9
We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed.
