Waiting Children

The Waiting Child list came out on Friday afternoon. I decided I had to look at it, not so much as to find my daughter, but in a way, it gives me a little hope. I checkekd it out and find out that my daughter isn't on that list. There are 30 children and I know there is going to be a lot of competition for them. This is great. I hope these children find a wonderful home. I wonder how many people are considering SN children because the wait for NSN is so long. All I know is that there is a reason for my wait. Only God knows what it is so I'm going to be patient. There is a saying by St. Thomas Aquinas that says that being patient is one of the best ways of doing God's will (or something like that). Let go, let God. It has taken me a long time to accept that. Patience is not one of my best virtues. But, I'm working on it.

In the meantime, I'm getting things together for the school rummage sale next Saturday. I'm trying to get Grace's room together and teach Hope not to be so spazzy.

My daughter wasn't on the list either. Her room is currently the empty box room in my new house! I'm TIRED of unpacking.

You were right. It's fun to walk in to the room and imagine seeing her in there.
