Oh......The Wait!

In adoption, the wait just starts getting to you at some point, I am at that point! We are on day 51 into our wait for our LOA and I think we are about half way there. My caseworker emailed me back today regarding the email I sent yesterday asking what the wait times are right now... Her response.....

Most LSCs (LOA) take 60-110 days.  Since your dossier was in translation when we got Pre-Approval, I would probably anticipate it to come on the longer end of that! (sorry!!!) The CCCWA can't change the "track" of the dossier until the translation is done....  As soon as we receive some new ones, I can give you a better idea!

So.....the wait continues. For a few minutes I thought "we are just stuck at the CCWCA for now". And then I remembered how big God is....why in the world would He do what he already has done with Janie, to just forget about her....and let her paperwork just be...without Him being in now I will wait on Him and His perfect timing. He knows exactly when He wants her LOA released and for us to travel to get her. How is it that God can do soooo much for us yet we so quickly forget Him for the moment? I'm working on that one today....and I'm sure for everyday.....thankful that He forgives me each time I doubt....

Do you know how God controls the clouds and makes his lightning flash? Job 37:15


  1. This is my verse in the wait!

    Romans 8:24-25, "Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees?but if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience."

    Lord, grant us patience!!

  2. Praying for you sweet friend as you wait~ it IS so hard and you are SO right~ Our God is so big and He knows exactly when~ perfect timing!!! XOXO

  3. Paige--SO happy to have "run into you!" Our daughter's foster sister's mama (who came home in Aug)forwarded us video of our sweetie. I just got it and viewed it this afternoon. It's 2 months old. I've been weepy ever since. And that's not like me. Trying so hard to give it up to Him. Hard for a control freak like me.
    So so glad to have a friend in waiting.
    Day 52,
