It has been twelve months exactly since we have been logged in to CCAA. One whole year.
I guess the good thing is that it has gone by pretty quickly. There have been times of high emotion and the questions of "why isn't this going any faster?" Or, "what can we do in the mean time?" I get crazy fleeting thoughts of more fertility treatments (I really do NOT want to go there), and praying that I'll get pregnant (wouldn't that be so much easier, God?), or should we do another adoption while we wait?
And then I settle down again and just trust in God's goodness and His perfect timing. He knows exactly what we need and He will provide!
We are learning more and more about trust in God and the obedience that it requires. Such as getting out of debt and actually having the cash to pay for the rest of the adoption when the time does come.
So, it is a good thing, for us, that it looks like it will probably be a couple more years before we get our referral for Abby's Mei Mei (Little Sister). We're just waiting for our perfect match - like the one we got three years ago in little Abby.
God does ALL things well!
