A Frustrating Week
Well, I've finally figured out how to make a post on this blog. Matt has done all the posting until now. I wish my first post could contain better news however. We've had a very long and frustrating week. Multiple work issues were compounded by some frustrating news that the paperwork we sent to Uganda in January was just now being processed. We were told that this paperwork was what started our process for adopting from Uganda. We were under the impression that the orphanage had received it in January and we were using this as our start date for counting down until we can bring Micah home. Now it looks like April is our new start date and therefore we are looking at not being able to bring our son home until next spring. This of course was disappointing news. Throughout this whole week however, the Lord has been an ever present help and encouragement. It has been amazing that every time I got really down this week, the Lord brought a verse, a song or a word of encouragement to gently remind me that He is still in control. He knows the desires of our hearts and wants to lavish us with better gifts then we can ever imagine. Sometimes its just so hard to wait for those gifts even though we know the waiting makes the end result that much sweeter.
