We Know Our Number!
Our adoption agency has been wonderful so far. We feel so blessed to be working alongside a Christian agency who cares not only for orphans but for the plight of their parents. We were trying to keep up with all of the goings-on in Ethiopia and ran across a blog from a family adopting from there. They were elated that they were number 21 on the list. We immediately wanted to know, what is this list, and where are WE on it?? We contacted our agency and asked them about it, and learned that we are currently #41 on the list of families waiting to be matched in Ethiopia. Actually, that was a couple of weeks ago...maybe we're #39 now!! This is just a general guideline to help families know where they are in the process, because this waiting and not knowing anything about your particular adoption can be really hard. However, time and time again, the Lord has reminded me that we do not wait on man; we wait on His sovereign and absolutely perfect timing. The last time I was getting a little bit anxious about the whole thing a friend of mine said, "Maybe you're still waiting because your child hasn't been born yet!" Only the Lord knows. We'll get the call, and it won't be a second too late.
