So we got the call this morning after I had given up the hope to travel the first week of May! Kristen called and said we can travel next week!!!!!!!! Our Embassy appointment is May 12th, we will meet our son on May 10th! We will finally after 2 years hold our baby boy! I am still shaking with excitement and overwheming panic! We leave in less than a week, God is amazing how he makes things work! A friend of mine that is also adopting from the same agency sent me the following scriptures last night after I had emailed her that it is God's plan not mine, I have told myself that through this whole journey and was going to keep reminding myself:
"He told them, 'You don't get to know the time. Timing is the Father's business.'" - Acts 1:7
"Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails." - Proverbs 19:21
So unbelievably true and I can't believe I had not run across these scriptures before this. God's plan is so great and perfect! Oh and more great news, this same friend will also be travelling with us! We will get to hold our baby boys together and meet them for the first time together! God puts the perfect people in our paths at the perfect time.
There is so much to do and literally so little time! Ethiopia here we come!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
