Today, we were on our way to meet Sara Beth, her brothers, and mommy
, and Sarah Mei
and her mommy when Mom's cell phone rang.
We couldn't remember our agency's exact area code, but we knew for sure that the first 2 digits were the same...
Now... you must know that there was rumoured to be a "flood" of TAs coming in early this week. And even though our article 5 for Grace was only 11 days ago, our article 5 for Charlie was 2 months ago... so we were hoping to be expediated... and hoping for TA... and I was still praying for that May miracle...
So when Mom's phone rang, my heart skipped a beat. She looked at her phone and looked at me as if to say, "this might be it."
She answered and the other end said, "Pam?"
The way mom answered, it sounded like it just might be our agency calling.
I thought that maybe, just maybe, this was the call we have been waiting 10 months, 3 weeks, and a day for...
It was not.
Sigh. Don't people know not to call when we are anxiously waiting on our travel approval? ;)
I am so tired of waiting! I know God's plans are *SO* much better than mine... but it's still so hard to answer the continuous questions of "when are you going to China?" "why don't you know when you are travelling?" "why can't you just go now?"
