I don't know how many times in the last few months that I have heard the statement. . .
Why does it take so long to adopt?
Yes, I guess up to 3 years seems like a really long time, but I am thankful for the total peace that God has been so gracious to give me for the wait. I know he is preparing us as a family, and our darling little girl to meet us in HIS PERFECT TIMING. So here I wait, taking one step at a time. Trying my best to remain in God's peaceful presence.
My God is good ALL the time.
Our I800A has been delivered to the USCIS. Processing can take up to 3 months. Please pray everything goes through w/o any corrections needed. Our 3 year wait begins once we receive this back.
P.S. My new "theme song" is Jordan Sparks One Step at a Time. I listen to it a lot. I've listen so much. . . I've got Coy singing it :o) The words are so for waiting adoptive families, and many other things in life, too. Just listen. . .
