I am looking forward to how this journey is going to unfold. It is going to be amazing and eye opening to see God's miracles right in front of my eyes. We will either be matched with Lulu or we won't....we will either make financial deadlines, or we won't....we will travel this sumner, or we won't...all I know is God has His hand in this and He has already paved the way and knows how it all ends, and our new life with our daughter begins. I can't wait.
It's funny because even with this adoption I can see how the father takes the back seat just like in pregnancy! Ty said tonight he isn't worried about anything and he'll just be excited the day we get her. I told him I'm not worried or stressed, (ok, sometimes I stress!) but I look forward to each milestone/deadline that we reach. Like pregnancy, we mothers get to feel the baby all the way to the delivery room and we treasure each new phase and kick....the dad just seems to realize we are really having a baby as we enter the delivery room! Ty's along for the ride, but I know what he means, he'll just live each day as he always has until the day arrives that he can wrap her in his arms. I'm the one planning everything out! LOL! Dads. I guess they keep us moms balanced??? Gives us some perspective maybe. Live life. Enjoy. The day will come soon enough. Ok, good advice.
Today as I woke up I felt God say: "I am all you need" and then my verse today was a similar message. As I get worried how this and that will work out and how every financial deadline will be met, I am to remember, HE IS ALL I NEED. He will do everything, all I have to do is keep saying "yes" to his WILL.
