It's the time of day when...

I want to sit by my computer and watch His Hands Facebook page like a hawk. I hope that tonight is the night they will announce that they have a new arrival. It's the time of day when we are ready to head to bed here but the day is just beginning in Taiwan. I can't help but wonder if it might be the day that we find out about her. It's the time of day when I well up with tears asking, waiting, wondering, and praying. I really didn't think it would be so long. I wonder sometimes if I should just find a waiting one somewhere in the world, anywhere and bring them home. But, I know the Lord has led us and I don't want to go off and try and make things happen some other way. Lord, give me the grace to wait. And Lord, please watch over our baby and bring us together soon.

It's a Small World After All

This morning I received a phone call from a friend in Kearney. She asked me what city in Taiwan our baby will be from? She will be from Kaohsiung City, Taiwan.

A little over a year ago I had never heard of Kaohsiung City. But, now we have connections with 2 people who live there. One is our friend's son who is there studying Mandarin. And, we also had a foreign exchange student who came to Holdrege and lived with a couple in our church last year. She was also from Kaohsiung City. This is so exciting!

This phone call was encouraging to me this morning. God weaves people together. It was a little reminder that He has a plan and He knows where our baby is, who she is, and He will bring us together in His perfect timing. I am longing for it, Lord. Please let it be soon.
