Adoption involves a lot of waiting! To help pass the time, I planned 12 dates for my husband and I. Some are goofy, some are sweet, all are inexpensive (many are free). So far we have enjoyed our adventures, in our August date, September date, October date, December date, and January Date! November's date still needed to happen...and finally did!
November was an incredibly busy month for us. Unfortunately, our date for that month got lost in the hustle and bustle. Better late than never, though! This was the date card I created for November.
Afterwards, we went to Tar*get and wandered through the baby section. After this news and this picture, what can I say, I have babies on the mind! Another one of the mothers just updated her blog about their referral...meet their new little boy.
|You can see a lot more pictures of him on their announcement post!|
Be brave. Be strong. Don't give up. Expect God to come through soon. Psalm 31:24
We wait in hope and trust. But I remind myself that my definition of "soon" and God's might not be the same. His plans will be better than mine.
P.S. His Hands has a HUGE need to be met. I'll be blogging about it at some point, but this post says it so well that I can't think of what else I would add right now. Read the post or this newsletter from His Hands and re-post it, if you feel led. Here is a direct link to donate to His Hands.
