And we wait some more...

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Phil. 4:6-7
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. Hebrews 10:23
Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, "The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for him." Lamentations 3:22-24

The wait is so hard. I know, I was just there, and then to have all the new hoops to jump, it's hard to wait.

I am praying things move ahead quickly and in order!

It's terribly hard to wait, I know - after LOA was the worst for me. So close, yet so far away.

I love the verse in Phil. 4:6 - 7. Had to read it over and over during our adoption of Eli! Praying for you as you wait on your two sweet China treasures.

Emily, I have been following your blog for a while now. We are adopting a second child from China and we are naming her Kate. We seem to be on the same time line as your adoption for Charlie. We received our I800 provisional the end of Jan and just received our letter from the NVC today. So your letter should be arriving soon. We may end up in China at the same time. The waiting is hard but hopefully we will be holding these precious children by Easter.
