This seems to be the best phrase to describe how I am feeling lately. During the first leg of the process you are consumed with paperwork, interviews, more paperwork, social worker home visits, online education, and you guessed it….more paperwork. Once you have completed this first leg you are so excited, but the waiting has just begun. I definitely feel like God is teaching me many lessons through this journey…including relinquishing control! I feel like we are at the stage now where I need to relax a little (which I am finding to be impossible). We are through all of the paperwork and appointments that we had some control over, so now we have to have faith things will continue to move along with no hiccups! I need to relax and focus on enjoying our time together before we welcome our little blessing.
“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” -Philippians 4:6-7
