what a ride!

Adoption is such a roller coaster ride in so many ways.  Things change constantly, you never know what's going to happen, and most of all...the emotions!  The last month or so has been that kind of ride to me.  Last week I was feeling especially down.  There really was no reason why, just feeling like, "This is never going to happen, is it?!".  But I am happy to report that I'm coming into this new week filled with hope.  I can see God's hand throughout our whole journey, and I know and have faith that He would never leave us now.  I know His timing is perfect, even if it's not what I thought it might be (why do I think I can figure it out anyway?).  I know I can trust Him.  He is after all my own adoptive Father!

"he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will"  Ephesians 1:5
