Lilypie First Birthday tickers

Sunday, January 9, 2011

Right now I am:

...wondering when we'll get a call from Lutheran Social Services...

...fighting jealousy towards everyone (literally) who is pregnant...

...so grateful for the $6300 we have received in gifts/grants toward our $8000+ amount that we'll need to finalize our adoption. God is so so good...

...comforted by the realization that so many women in the Bible battled with infertility, or waiting to have a child (such as Sarah, Elizabeth, Michal, Ruth, Noah's wife, and so on)...

...wondering how in the world we're going to make everything "work" in the nursery...

...trusting God for His perfect timing...

...trying to avoid a "poor me" mentality...

...praying that we'll have answers soon.
