13 is our number

HI again...over a month since I have been here...it is decided that I am not a good blogger. I don't particularly love writing so that is not surprising to me, however we have gotten lots of questions about our status lately, so here I am. We have been DTE (waiting) for over two months now:) We went from number 30 down all the way to 13! We are moving! I have to admit when I saw the number 13 next to our name my stomach did a little flip-flop, and then the worries kicked it...'wow! This is moving so fast' 'Am I ready to travel to a third world country' 'Will the travel go OK' 'Will Mae be OK' 'How will we be able to meet our son and leave him after only a few days?' So many unknowns...but somehow, I really do have peace. This is something I am so thankful for. In the past have felt many times how anxiety can take over. Day by day God is taking my worries, and not necessarily showing me how it will all be OK, but letting my heart rest in Him. This is one of the most emotional, unknown journeys I have ever been on, but yet I am peaceful about it. I know it is right.

I have been praying for God to share with me some encouragement that we are on the correct path. During the same week as my prayer we received two checks out of the blue to put towards our adoption costs. AND we were able to meet and connect with two other couples within in hour of us who are in the exact same agency and program as we are. God continues to show me peace and encouragement...and I know I can ask Him to share it with me. He is there with our son, and we He is here with us.
