Exactly one year ago today, we applied to AGCI’s Ethiopia program. We knew that the road to our child halfway around the world would not be easy. We knew that the path would not be short. We knew that Satan would do anything to stop us. And, we knew that God would protect our hearts and carry us through.
We announced our adoption plans. We were overjoyed to share our incredible news.
And, here we are. One year later. Anxious to get “the call.” Aching, longing, desperate to step our feet on African soil and run to the gates of Hannah’s Hope. All the while, knowing that our journey is nowhere near completion. Knowing that God continues to ask us to “wait.” To be still.
We will wait. We will pray. We will submit our hearts to the One who knows our desires and who fulfills our every need. We will use this time to prepare our hearts and strengthen our faith.
