It's Going to be a Long Wait.......

Well, we officially went on the Waiting List with AGC last Monday. We are #15. But, here is the kicker.....the families ahead of us on the list are all waiting for little boys, no older than 18 months. We have said we would take a boy through age 4. I really don't know how long to expect our wait to be. I just know that every time the phone rings my heart jumps and I hope the caller ID shows our agencies' name. My head knows that I must be logical....this is a process that takes time....it could be months. My heart however is hopeful that we will get a call.....NOW!!! Since we made this decision to adopt we have poured so much time and energy into the paperwork that at times it didn't seem real. But now that is all over and we just wait, and pray. I pray that my future son has a full belly and a warm bed to sleep in. I pray for the orphanage workers that are caring for him and for his parents/family members that he may never see again. I pray that God is preparing his heart and his mind for what is to come.....and then I wait some more.
