The Waiting

"Time to let it go and just believe"
"The hardest part is waiting on You, when what I really want is just to see Your hand move"
"I want a peace beyond my understanding. I wanna feel it fall like rain, in the middle of my hurting."
"I wanna feel your arms as they surround me"
"And let me know that it's ok, to be here in this place....resting in the peace that only the waiting"

I heard this song on the radio yesterday. I haven't heard it for a long time. It was a song that meant a lot to me when we were waiting for our first child after going through so much heartache from infertility and a miscarriage. I felt like the Lord played it just for me yesterday.

We are still waiting and waiting. We were planning to leave for Florida yesterday or today. We're still here and still haven't heard anything from our birthmother. We will not leave until we hear something positive. It will take a miracle, but a miracle is what we are praying for!!

Thanks so much for all your support and prayers!!!! We can feel the peace that is a result of having many pray for us! Thank you.

Now today we will go to church and give praise and worship to our Lord!

Oh Sherri, I've been thinking so much about you today and yesterday wondering what you've heard. I'm so sorry for all the hours of not knowing. Sorry for the bags waiting, already packed. Wishing you knew an answer and a confimation to go. I love you and am holding you up in prayer today.

Waiting and unknowing are so completely frustrating. We've been thinking about you guys a lot lately, especially these last few days. We'll keep sending up the prayers!
