Just when I thought....

...that our LOA would never come, that we'd never get this update that was supposed to come a week ago... I was shown this verse:

"But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, be patient! For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day." Habakkuk 2:3

It's coming. It's coming in His perfect timing. We will be celebrating our LOA soon because it WILL come. It's hard when we were told to expect it "quickly" since we were SN only and yet here we are, 60 days later, with no news... but He is faithful and it WILL come!

Aw, thanks so much for that Emily! That is THE perfect verse for anybody that is waiting for RA---or waiting for anything in this crazy adoption journey! I am going to have to put that one on a note card and put it in a place that I will be able to see it daily! Thank you Lord!

BTW, we ended up going to Costco tonight in search of this PJ's! We bought 3 pairs! So cute!!!

Praying for you this week!

My cousin shared the same verse with us as we waited for LOA. It was so comforting to me as well. Hang in there! I know the waiting is SO hard. After LOA, I was at peace for about 2 weeks. Now I'm as anxious as ever for TA and CA and travel dates! Adoption is not for the faint of heart!

The waiting is not pleasant. Praying you all hear soon. For us, after day 50, I was just not happy with the wait. I told myself it would take at least 50 days, but at the time we sent our LOI, people who were not through review and sent NSN dossiers were waiting 60 days. I geared up for 60 days. It was not to be. Each day felt excruciatingly hard. 80 LONG days. We were told "quick" for the TA but I am trying to stay guarded. It looks as if CAs are filling up fast for September based on RQ so who knows. Hugs to you and your family as you wait. :) Thanks for the verse too!!!
