Conversations at Dawn

I've been awake since 4:00am, thinking about one thing... our little girl.
Wondering if she's ok.  Is she warm & tucked into bed right now, like our kiddos here.
Is she safe?  Happy?  Did someone pray over her before she fell asleep?

This whole adoption thing has wrecked me.

How is it possible to love someone so deeply... someone you've never even met?!

But, I do...

And, He does...

Little By Little...

We got a new number yesterday!

I had a friend ask about the waiting list.  Specifically, "how it all worked."
So, here's a quick rundown...

Once your dossier is approved in Honduras, you are logged in to a master waiting list.
The Honduran council meets once a month (most of the time!) to match a child with a family.  
This process of matching is called, "receiving a referral."  
Sometimes the council will refer 6 children a month... sometimes only 3.

Generally... a few weeks after new children are matched with families, the waiting list starts to move.
Little by little...

Commit + Trust + Be Still + Wait

"Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun. Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him."    Ps. 37
