Last months referrals covered LID's up to and including December 27th, 2005. This puts only 14 log in days in between us and a referral. We are thrilled to see our date on the projection charts at long last (courtesy of RQ)! If the CCAA does a better job than last month, we should get to see our LK's face in March; if they do about the same as last month, we will see her in April. That is not long at all! As much as I would love to see her next month, I can definitely live with the idea of knowing we are absolutely, positively next in April. That would get me through one more month of waiting.
I have never been a particularly patient person, but this journey has taught me about the value of patience and even more that that, the importance of faith. I have had moments where this has seemed like an endless wait and the not-knowing was frustrating and painful and downright hard, but I have never questioned that God was right there with me, holding me fast, giving me comfort. I know His wisdom surpasses my understanding and I just had to trust that we would get through and our prayers would be answered in the most perfect timing of all - God's time. It won't be long now until we are celebrating the moment we have been preparing for, and will see the light of God's love shining through the eyes of our daughter - and that will be worth every second of this wait.
