A Step Closer - 14

We received word yesterday that we have moved up to number 14 on the wait-list.  A friend of mine heard that we moved and was excited for us, and I thanked him for his excitement.  Honestly, I have been struggling with a certain level of cynicism as this process has dragged on and on.  On one hand, I know that our Lord is faithful and will accomplish His purposes and His plans cannot be thwarted.  Along with this, I believe that the Lord has led our family to adoption and to adopt a child from Honduras.  Yet, as we hit the four and a half year mark of this process, I have grown numb to the incremental steps.  I know I should be excited for another step toward having our family blessed and transformed by another child in our lives, yet my excitement in tempered by the voice in the back of my head that says this could still be another year or more.  All of this to say, thank you to so many of you that have been on this journey with us and have shown patient persistent love and support.  Thank you for understand how we struggle with this wrestling between being excited, yet hesitant to get too "ramped up".  Thank you for your prayers! 

Yes!  We are number 14, and that is exciting!
