These things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, do not despair, for these things will surely come to pass. Just be patient! They will not be overdue a single day!" Habakkuk 2:3 - Living Bible Translation
My friend sent this to me after a long overdue FaceTime conversation. I shared about our newest development; Just that we are waiting on paperwork to be signed and people aren't available to sign my daughter over to us. Slowly! Steadily! I was reminded in our wonderful Christmas program at church yesterday that this was not my vision. This calling to adopt came out of just being willing and wow, I did not expect any of this. So, I'm glad I didn't take pictures that captured my hopelessness and ones that showed me crying. I know new pictures of Scott meeting our daughter will come very soon and pictures of my kids playing with their new sister will be taken soon enough. This time next year I can sit in our wonderful Christmas program and watch my daughter share in the lighting of the candles (Blaire's favorite part). May we all take a moment to sit in silence and remember our Savior's birth and I hope it has new meaning to you for 2013. I hope we all have time for that!
