Thanks to our friends Michael and Kim for their friendship and encouragement. They knew we were having a down day and called and took us to dinner.
I tell ya when I prayed for new friends 2 years ago, I did not know that God would answer that prayer with international adoption..He is awesome!
When you want this whole thing to seem real, visit a home that's getting ready for a new child. They will be travelling this summer to bring their son home from China.!What an encouragement they were. They shared some experience with us and just made us feel loved. I learned more about adoption resources and websites to find things with Lynn Marie's name. Apparently, Miss Kim likes the name Lynn Marie! Thanks for being so kind to us tonight. We both needed it!!!
This was the most enjoyable evenings I have had in such a long time!!!
Kim mentioned something at dinner and said " I think Amy will be okay during her wait as long as she can see the babies and hear about referrals at First Friday" (forgive me Kim if I misquoted you). Apparently, I am easier to read than I thought. She is sooo right! We have not gotten the chance to spend a lot of time with Michael and Kim, but they really seem to know us well.
I am pretty optimistic regarding this adoption. I know the wait is going to be long. It could be 3 years. The way I think about it is, Michael and I have been trying to have a baby for 3 years so we are half way there. I know many people have been discouraged and I pray for my friends daily. I do not know where my positive attitude comes from. Actually I do, God!!!!! Seriously, He is the only one who knows when our wait will end. His timing is so much better than mine!!
Thanks again to our friends! We both ended our days feeling blessed!!
