In this adoption process (which we've only been in for about a month now) I've learned a lot. I've already had ups and downs. Days where I'm so excited and so hopeful and days where I am full of doubt and don't know if we're doing the right thing.
Today I am hopeful. Today I know that we are doing the right thing. Today I am so incredibly excited that our tiny boy is probably about to make his way into the world.
I've had a few days filled with doubt but today the Lord reassured me that it's right. That this is what he wants for our family and that he will provide.
Today we found out that our wait time for a referral is 5 months!!! 5 months!!! That's so soon! That also means that our son isn't born yet. He's still in his mama's belly. In South Korea, they don't allow any babies to be put up for adoption until they are 5 months old. First they try to find them a family in Korea and if that doesn't work out they allow an agency in Korea to find a family for them. And that's where we come in!
All I can do now is pray that he is safe and healthy and that he goes to a wonderful foster family until he's ready to come home to us forever. I can't believe that our baby boy is out there. Probably not "out there" yet but in a tummy somewhere in South Korea. Insane. Aaaaahhhh. I've been shaking with excitement all day because today it became so much more real to me that this is happening. It's really happening!
Pray for us. We need it so much. We need to keep our eyes on Jesus in all of this. We need to trust him.
Thank you friends.
