(down 2 spots from 105 in August)
Not gonna lie, I was definitely hoping for double digits. :(
Each number represents a family waiting. And each family is waiting for a precious son or daughter (or both).
Please pray with us that the numbers would drop . . . not just so we are closer to Easton, but on behalf of those who these numbers represent . . . the amazing little ones waiting for a forever family!
People have been asking how we are doing in the wait. Honestly, we're at a good place.
One, we certainly aren't just sitting around while we wait . . . our two littles keep us plenty busy so there isn't much time to dwell on the fact that Easton isn't here yet.
Two, we are intentionally trying to trust in the sovereignty and perfect timing of God. When the time is right, we'll get the call. Simple as that. Worrying about it won't do anything to help us in the meantime. That isn't to say that we aren't waiting with anticipation and excitement, because we definitely are. There is an ache for our son and the hope of meeting him soon, but it isn't filled with anxiety or frustration, instead it is a peace that surpasses understanding . . . thank you Jesus!
So we're good. But please don't stop asking. It encourages our hearts to know that others are just as excited about Easton as we are!
So in anticipation that October will be a crazy month of referrals and with hope that we'll be in double digits soon . . .
I'm giving away an adoption t-shirt!
