Encouragement

"But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, be patient! For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day."
Habakkuk 2:3

Emily, my friend and a fellow member of our first adoption travel group in 06, shared this verse with me this evening. It is so perfect for this wait! Tomorrow will be day 109, I never thought that we would have to wait this long. But, this verse reminds me that it WILL come! I just have to remember that God is in control of this wait and He will bring us our LOA at the right time. Emily and her family will be leaving for China in just 4 days to bring home precious Kate Mei! Thank you, Emily, for sharing this verse with me and I cannot wait to follow your journey to bring home Kate!
