It will be soon

    "It will be soon." Is it just me or do you feel like I have had to hear that a million times??  We called FTIA today and they said they have received a correspondence from China and that our LOA would be on it's way soon.  What is soon?  Soon to me would have been getting it all done in one week!  Instead we are working our way through the steps all over again.  We got a PA on the 26th of June.  Are they telling me that now we are waiting on an LOA together with a TA or are we waiting on the TA separately?
     I would have been fine if they would have just told me I would be working my way through all the steps again.  But, instead, everyone kept saying soon.  If you ask me, soon has come and gone.
     I really need to keep this is perspective.  At least they gave us a new referral and a relatively healthy one at that.  And, if I really trust God like I say I do, then why am I having such a hard time trusting him with the timing?
    I bet God gets so frustrated with me.  He proves himself over and over and over again.  Then, when things don't go as I want them to go, I want to throw myself down on my bed like a spoiled brat, cry and not function the rest of the day.
    That's pathetic!  Forgive me Lord!

     On a happy note, I have some very good and gracious friends throwing me a shower tonight!  So sweet!!

Aaaaaw, a shower. How fun! And what a great, tangible way to celebrate. Hope you get lots of great stuff and can start dreaming of using it :)

Waiting and waiting with you. It's so hard, isn't it?! But I keep reminding myself that He is sovereign, He is in control, and He will renew my strength for this journey!

Hi April,

I was so disappointed that I couldn't make it to the shower. Cara and Abby are both sick with a stomach thing. I was moping around all evening knowing that I was missing out on a great celebration of your sweet girl. We can't wait for you to have her home and are praying it comes quickly!

Ahem....soooooo with all this waiting and time to kill, why don't you rename the blog? That would take up like two minutes! Maybe that'll make the time fly!

Just a thought! (And another way to make you smile during this wait!)

Hope you had a fun shower!!!

I have been praying that you will get news soon. But God keeps reminding me that it is all in HIS time. It's hard for even me to accept this & she's not even my daughter! :) But I know he is right & no matter how frustrating it is or how is seems the timing isn't going to work with our schedules, we need to remember that God already knows when it is going to happen and not to worry or fret.
