This little man thinks the wait for his brother, "Sure is taking a long time!".... I can't say I blame him either! It's been almost a year of us talking about Jude being a big brother and praying for Isa every night- so it's no wonder the questions like, "Is he coming home today?!" and "Do we get to see Isa's face soon?" are starting to occur. It's with his innocent questions that my heart aches and gets a bit impatient as well. While I'm preaching one thing to Jude, that "We still have to wait a while longer, BUT God knows the perfect time that Isa will join our family!"... I have to remind myself to believe it as well! This whole adoption wait sure is more challenging for me then the 9 month wait of pregnancy, I have to be honest! Yes with pregnancy there is the "ugh" of loosing what was once your body, and worrying every time you have to sneeze that you'll pee your pants... but you knew, that in 40 weeks- you would see the face of this sweet child that was causing you such discomfort! I really struggle with not knowing when we'll see the face of our sweet Isa! At times, I'm cool with it- and totally can hang on the truth of God's perfect timing- and then at other times, I stink at it! Like today, when Jude brought up the fact that "This sure is taking a long time!"... AGREED Jude, agreed! Just being honest about my impatience.
