Jesus replied, "What is impossible with men is possible with God." -Luke 18:27

We wish we could get on a plane and fly to Ethiopia. The adoption agency says that it will take anywhere between one to two years before that happens. We can't make the clock turn faster. That's impossible. If we want a gallon of milk, Target is a short car ride. If we want a book, Mardel is right up the street.

We want Baby Sam but bringing him into our family is different. In our hearts we feel that it is God who is bringing us into His house; under the shadow of his mighty wings.

Jesus could have come into the world as a grown man, ready for the cross. Instead, he chose to grow...and wait. On this quiet night, with no forms to fill out and no questions to answer, we sit and wait for the next set of tasks that will bring us closer to Baby Sam. We choose to grow closer to our Father while we wait, praising His perfect timing. He's the One who is making this adoption possible. Glory to God!
