I apologize for not sharing more during this time of waiting… we received photos and a doctors report at the beginning of May but still haven’t received the “approval call” we have been waiting for since April.
Mother’s Day and Father’s Day have come and gone and we’re now in the full swing of summer. The crib is just about complete and his room is organized and painted. We’ve had 2 beautiful showers, initially expecting to travel this summer, but reality is sinking in that summer isn’t happening. No splash parks, no camping, likely no swimming, and no summer nights snuggled on the porch reading books…
“In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps.”
Proverbs 16:9 NIV
At the end of each day Eric and I look at each other and say “I can’t believe they didn’t call today.” We feel helpless and disappointed. Hopeful but sad. Try as we may to plan for the future, we just have to sit back and be patient.
However in what continues to be one of the hardest seasons of our lives, we have moments of joy- like spending the day together yesterday and today and enjoying beautiful weather and scenery; moments of feeling completely supported by the friends and family that God has intentionally surrounded us with during this time; and moments of peace- where we look at each other and realize how blessed we are in so many ways.
That’s all for tonight. Eric and I are celebrating 6 years of awesome married-ness all weekend. I’m so grateful for his love and friendship and that we still love just hanging out with each other.
