Wait?

There's my beautiful mei mei! (Picture taken in March 08-cropped)

Tomorrow will be day 130 of our wait. It is much too long, but I just have to keep telling myself that it will come. The wait seems to never end and it is hard to think that Chayah may not be home for Christmas after all... The verse that I posted a few weeks back HERE has been such an encouragement during this wait. I looked it up in The Message translation and it is so true!
"It aches for the coming—it can hardly wait! And it doesn't lie. If it seems slow in coming, wait. It's on its way. It will come right on time."
Habakkuk 2:3
Day 130 is a lot longer than I thought we would have to wait, and all of this waiting is getting really hard, but I know that our LOA (letter of acceptance) will come and be right on time!
