Worth the Wait

It's funny when the heaviness of the wait hits you.  Jamey and I were watching the 4 year olds in kids church this past Sunday and I walked in to the large group meeting.  There was a little boy from Africa in the room, and as soon as I layed eyes on him I immediately and unexpectedly became overwhelmed with emotion.  I couldn't stop thinking about Lincoln and holding him and how much I longed to have him back in my arms.  This process gets long and challenging, but God is faithful and our sweet boy is worth every moment of the wait.

We recently found out that our case was submitted to the US Embassy this past Wednesday.  We were a bit bummed to find out that this means another 6-8 weeks of waiting before we're able to head back to Ethiopia to bring Lincoln home.  This time frame is only if there aren't any problems.  If there are, it'll take longer.  Please pray for patience for us as we wait, and for everything to go smoothly so we aren't delayed--a delay could mean that I would be too far along in my pregnancy to travel back with Jamey which would be very hard for me.

"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."
--Lamentations 3:23
