One year ago today, August 21st, Colin said, "It is time."
It was time.
Time to adopt from Ethiopia.
Time to let go and let God.
Time to trust in God.
Time to allow ourselves to be filled with a beautiful hope.
And while some of these truths have slipped my mind as stress and uncertainty have seeped in, I am remembering them today. I will sew them into my heart to remember them always.
We are falling in love with our child/ren that we have not met yet. Falling in love with God's plan for us. Falling in love with Ethiopia. And falling more in love with each other.
We are finishing up our dossier documents. And aching to be on the waitlist. Aching for our referral. Aching for our baby/ies.
Will you pray for our hearts? Will you pray for our child/ren's hearts?
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
