I cannot believe we have been on the waiting list for 5 months!! Time has flown by but...it has started to slow down. We are so ready to get Lucy home. We are really trying to not rush this time..to completely trust in God's timing. Which we do. BUT, some days are harder than others. Part of our family is across the world. We wonder what is going on in her life, we pray for her first mom and family, we pray for God's presence in their lives.
I have not emailed or contacted our social worker in 5 months....which I was so proud of myself. But, yesterday, I thought I had earned the right to check in with her and see if she knew anything on our case. She did not. But, the good news is that referrals have not slowed down and the current wait time is 6 - 8 1/2 months. She even used the phrase "in the homestretch" to refer to our status. Thanks for supporting us...she is already one loved little girl!!!
