I think and pray all of the time about this, but amidst the uncertainty I've had to make a conscious decision to try and just proceed as if this is just a speed-bump and that it will all work out. I hope that is the case. So although the current situation puts a damper on some of my exuberance, I'm still going to share some love that went up this week on our walls that relates to our baby girl. About a month ago I shared my excitement about a piece of art that I'd been wanting for some time which I got for my birthday. We finally got it back from the place that framed it for us and it's hung in our front room now. I stare at it several times a day, and remember that this whole process truly is in His hands.
Another thing I'd been waiting to hang in our entry way was this digital file that I purchased and printed out. The smaller words you see are cities in Ethiopia. Maybe our baby girl will be born in one of them...
We put that print in a "place-holding frame" (that's what I'm calling it) and put it on the wall in the entry alongside photos of our other three kiddos. Someday I pray that I'll be able to replace that print with a picture of our baby girl.
So, that's all I have for now. No real answers, just more hoping while we wait.
