21 Months and PRAYING!

This is being posted one day late because of Father's Day yesterday...

Today, June 17, 2012, marks exactly 21 MONTHS of being on the AGCI waitlist for Caroline Faith!

Wow, another month has already gone by!  Why is the summer flying by so fast?!  I really want it to slow down a little! :)  Trying to enjoy every second of my favorite time of year!

Last month, we were sitting at #11, and we are SO THANKFUL to be in the TOP TEN this month!!!  Praise the Lord!!!  We have finally made it!!! 

It has been fun to kind of go down the wait list in "number decades" the 80's, 70's, 60's, etc.  I can't believe that we have finally reached the very last "number decade"!  When we reach the end of this one, we will be getting the call for our baby girl!!!  It is just so exciting!

I start getting tears in my eyes, even just THINKING about getting the call about our Caroline Faith!  Wow.  Well, as far as I know, we are still at #10.  We probably won't get our official June number until the very end of the month.  Praying for the single digits!!! :)

Currently, our agency is estimating the wait time for referral of a baby girl at 22 months.  But this seems to be extended every month.  They are telling us to prepare to wait 24 months or longer.  We are just praying for God's perfect will and timing! 

The Lord has faithfully led us every step of the way.  Month after month, I continue to hear Him tell me just to trust Him.  We are so blessed to be 21 months closer to our daughter.

To our precious girl,

We are so thankful to be another month closer to you, baby girl.  I cannot even imagine the day when we get the call that will change our lives forever!  We cannot wait to see your sweet face for the very first time!

I know that God has such a perfect, wonderful plan for your life.  We love you so much already, but we know that our Creator and Heavenly Father loves you so much more than we do.  He has asked us to WAIT on Him to reveal His plan for bringing you into our family.

We are waiting and clinging to Him in the wait.  We trust that He will make all things beautiful in His time.  And we will continue to praise Him and glorify Him in the wait.  God alone deserves all the praise and glory!

Hold on, baby girl.  We love you and we're coming soon.

"Be exalted in Your strength, Lordwe will sing and praise Your might." Psalm 21:13
