Emotional basketcase!!!

Today is one of those of those not so good days! I Thank God for all of the families who are getting families but weep because we are not! We were told siblings were VERY rare and we could wait indefinatly but I had faith that this would not be the case. Yet our wait is getting so hard. Our specific request is 1 BOY and 1 GIRL yet many families since we made the list have gotten sibling referrals but they were either boy/boy or girl/girl. Families only waiting a month or 2 months. I know God has already chosen our children and we must wait on the Lord but my heart is growing very weary. We most likely will run into court closers. What that means is we are most likely looking towards fall to winter before we might bring our children home, or we continue to wait even longer. My prayer is that we get the call soon, I never imagined waiting on a boy and a girl sibling set would be harder than waiting for twins!!! Please continue to pray that our children are revealed soon. Today is thursday which is a good day for referral calls, I've pretty much stopped watching my phone but I rejoice with everyone elses news and pray for everyone who is on top of the list! Praying July is a good month.


  1. Paige;

    Just wanted to say that your post reminded my heart of the hurt I knew during our long wait for siblings last year. Emotions can be crazy things, and I hope just being able to share your frustration/hurt/uncertainty has provided a bit of a release.

    One verse that helped me get through our 9+ month wait was Isaiah 30:18 -- "But God's not finished. He's waiting around to be gracious to you. God takes the time to do everthing right--everything. Those who wait around for him are the lucky ones." May God bless your wait!
