The Waiting Game

So we wait...and will continue to wait it seems. This month, China again issued only a few days worth of referrals. We are not sure why they issued so few or when or even if it will speed up. We do know that God is good. We will not allow ourselves to question His motives nor His timing. At this point, we will have to extend our expectation to receiving a referral next spring with travel next summer.

I am beginning to feel like an elephant with such a long pregnancy!!

Mother's Day

Today is Mother's Day. It was an enjoyable day, with a 2 hour cruise down the Rhine River, a castle tour, a cable car ride, a big German lunch, and plenty of shopping.

It is great to have a family to spend time with, especially when we all enjoy each other's company so much. It was wonderful to spend the day without the distractions of life getting in the way. The only thing that could have made today better would have been if Hannah was here with us. We saw several people with young children playing on the boat, climbing the castle, and getting sleepy at naptime. It made us think of Hannah and what life will be like once she is with us.

We sure are ready for Hannah to come home!!
