While we wait…

Our dossier is officially at its destination. Thank you, Jesus! And now we wait… Some people have asked me what it’s like during the waiting process. What emotions do I feel? What’s it like to wait for a baby I don’t carry in my tummy? A baby I don’t feel kick and never see an ultrasound?

I remember after the miscarriages feeling so lost because I thought, “How can I love someone so much, someone I’ve only known about for a month, someone I’ve never seen and never felt?” But our God is big and He knits together families as only He can. When God called us to adopt, He put this longing in our heart for a child that I would never carry in my tummy but would carry in my heart from that day forward. In the same way I dream about what Pumpkin will look like and whether Pumpkin is a boy or a girl, I think about the same things about EEOO. We have picked names for EEOO just like we have for Pumpkin. God works as only He can and He puts this desire on your heart than only He can fulfill with His perfect plan for your family. So, just like we have while we’ve waited for Lydia and now Pumpkin, we dream and pray and wonder and imagine what EEOO will be like and how God will use this precious child to change His world.
