Well, we are back to our normal life....well, as normal as it can possibly be considering our son is miles away in another country as we sit and wait for our adoption to progress. But yes, we are back to our lives here in OP. This is all really a waiting game. Some wait more, some wait less. But in all the waiting, I remind myself of this scripture:
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
I have faith that God will see us through this no matter how long we have to wait. Only He knows exactly when Gabriel will be coming home to his forever family. So I lean on Him for all my strength ~ it is the only way to survive on this journey.
