I understand the longing you first time Moms out there feel....to hold you child and do all the Mommy things you long for. I remember that feeling, how hard the wait was as we waited to see when the Lord would bring us our very longed for 1st child. And as I play Star Wars, tickle my children, give hugs and kisses, make PBJs, drive carpool, snuggle before bed, etc... I think of you all and really pray for you & your wait. I know it is hard and pray that it is not much longer!!!
And I pray for all of us...as we wait for the phone calls that give us some knowledge of our children....referrals, court dates, updates. It is never easy to wait....this longing reminds me of that longing we had for our first! We are just as excited and anxious...even more so I think! I am thankful that I get to do all these fun Mommy things while we wait. And I am thankful that the Lord continues to refine me as I wait.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremeiah 29:11
Leave your orphans; I will protect their lives. Jeremiah 49:11
Thank you Jesus for being in control and for loving these children more than we as Moms could ever imagine doing. Thank you for loving us as we wait, sometimes impatiently and with a bit of whining (OK, a lot of it).
And for a good laugh thanks to Lori....watch this video.....
