Well folks, it's been 6 months that we've been on the waiting list for a baby. Last summer when we were officially put on the list and given the 5-7 month window for a referral I thought FOR SURE we'd be getting a referral by the 5 month mark. Well, obviously, things have really slowed down and now, half a year later, I am keeping my fingers crossed that we'll be getting The Call during our 7 months of waiting!
I will admit that I am starting to have moments of thinking that this is NEVER going to happen and it'll be fall before we bring our baby home...but...it is in those moments that I remember God's process of leading us down this road and I try to remember that all things are in His timing. I do wish in moments like these that I had Aaron's immense amounts of belief and faith and didn't question God's timing, plans, or outcomes. While I spend time agonizing over wait times and counting weeks and months on the calendar, Aaron just says very matter-of-factly "It'll happen when it is supposed to happen" then he'll just go write a new song.
So, while we're "killing time" we've made a list of things we should probably start getting for the baby so we aren't dropping hundreds of dollars in a few months on baby stuff. We've also got a list of spots in our house that need to get organized and cleaned, and we are anxiously awaiting the birth of Jon and Jo's baby. Hopefully their baby and our baby will be of opposite genders and we can set up an arranged marriage for 2028.
