The Adoption Roller Coaster

The adoption process is quite the roller coaster ride. I hate to admit it but on one of the dips, I got so frustrated, I kicked a chair. Ouch! My husband just laughed at me. : )

I keep wishing that this paper pregnancy had a due date that went along with it. I guess it is the unknowns and my lack of control over the situation that is the faith building part.

I really should have waited to post anything about a new referral until we actually had one. I got ahead of myself. We did get an email today that made me feel like we could be heading for an up part of the roller coaster. I'll keep you posted.....(but not too soon this time)

I've lost count of how many times I've come across the following quote in the last few days. I think God has been sending me a message:

I have found that there are three stages in every great work of God: first, it is impossible, then it is difficult, then it is done." - Hudson Taylor

It will be so-o-o-o nice to be at the "done" part. : )

Great quote Beck! Can I borrow it? We are in the waiting for referral stage, so I don't even know where that fits in: impossible, difficult but definitely not DONE!
