The problem is we are past all my lucky numbers!

I could hardly believe it once I added it all up. Since the day we officially committed to adopt Yana and Tavi it has been 421 days!!!

It occurred to me, I have not waited this long for anything I really wanted before!!! James's adoption took almost 2 years, but he was living with us during that time! Lucas's adoption, from the start of the homestudy, took just under 421 days. I was engaged AND married within 4 months for Pete's sake!

One might call me a tad spoiled. I prefer the words "highly motivated self starter"! ;)

I am praying that we have less than 1 month until we can travel. Even if it is a bit longer, the fact is it won't be 421 days! So since I have survived that, I do believe I will survive waiting the rest of the way.


  1. Ummm....let's see...

    Good things come to those who wait....

    That's all I could come up with today, and it's lame.

    I didn't have to wait half that long and it still killed me!

    Thinking about you as you wait and looking forward to the day they are home!!

    Blessings and patience :)

  2. LOL.. thanks Jodi. Now Heinz ketchup and I have something in common. :)

  3. You are so strong for making it and still professing your hope and love in the Lord!! You are down to getting a court date SOON!! I can't wait to check back. Your past few entries had me crying..darn you! Their room looks beautiful!! Have you learned braille (sp?) we are working on sign language (my 4 yo and I) Can't wait to check back and see more good news!!

  4. The waiting is tough! You are almost there! Cherish every moment!
