16 Months and Still Waiting


Friday marked our 16th month of waiting in line for China. When we started the process in March 2006, it looked like we would be traveling this summer to pick up our little one(s), but now we wait..hopefully not another 16 months, but we are in for the long haul. We have had so many opportunities to become parents since January and everything has fallen through. Two weeks ago, I got a call from a local hospital regarding a mom who decided not to parent and make an adoption plan for her child. The mom ended up wanting to place her child with a family from Lutheran Child and Family Services as she had done previously with another child. We keep reminding ourselves and looking at the card from my Aunt Karin that says, "More is being planned for you by God than had been prayed for by us." Maybe just maybe, we have twins waiting for us in China.
