Trusting in God while I wait (day 7)...

Liam and I were running about all weekend long, so I didn't have a chance to write anything new.

I am VERY hopeful that we will hear something this week. I don't have any new information, so I'm completely walking by faith, but I just feel optimistic that this will be the week that we hear something. I believe that part of faith is giving a request over to God and then being confident that He will answer that prayer. So, I'm being bold and choosing to believe that God will answer our prayer very soon.

This is a week of anniversaries. One is that on the 13th it will be 6 months since we received our referral for the most amazing, curly-haired little boy. He never is far from my thoughts. Liam and I will both find ourselves daydreaming throughout the day. When the other asks what we're thinking about, our answer is always "Aidan". This journey has single-handedly been the most rewarding and difficult thing that I've ever gone through, with the last month bringing the most intense longing. It's different that the pain that I felt with our miscarriages. I had no hope then. Now I am filled with the promise that God is bringing our little boy home to us. Oh, how I wish it was today. :)

Listen to my voice in the morning, LORD. Each morning I bring my requests to you and wait expectantly.
Psalms 5:3


  1. Happy to read your post today... we are waiting to be submitted to court, because of the same "unknown". I actually have the same hopeful feeling this week!

    May we both hear exciting news tomorrow, and yours has your son in your arms very, very soon!

  2. Thanks Leah Ann~
    I'm excited that you're feeling this hopeful feeling too. I pray that that means good news for both of us is just around the corner. Maybe we'll even travel together. :) Seeing you're child for the first time is such an amazing feeling. I pray that it comes soon for you.
