Yesterday marked 9 months on the Gladney Waiting List! When we started this whole process in January of 2011, we thought we would be getting a referral right about now since 9 months was the average wait. My biggest concern then was, what if got our referral in May and didn't receive a court date before the rainy season. My how things have changed. At the rate of referrals, we are looking at a very long road ahead.Many days I feel weary at the months that loom ahead, but many days I feel at peace with the waiting ahead and as I rejoice with friends at the referral of their beautiful child, I can't help but daydream about what that day will look like for our family. I choose to trust that it will come for us and we will know in that moment that our son, who was chosen for us from the beginning of time, was well worth the wait.
In the meantime......guess who turned (GASP) three???
