We made it to the 6 month mark!


Another month down and we have officially been LID for 6 months! There is something very different about this particular milestone. I am not sure what it is but ever since we were first LID I have looked forward to the six month mark. Maybe because it is halfway to a year and a year really feels like a milestone at this point. Maybe it is because when we first started this process the wait for a referral was about a year. At that time I imagined if I could just make it to the 6 month mark we would only have to wait 6 more months to bring Mia home and that seemed completely doable. Unfortunately, though while I am happy to celebrate this milestone, I wonder how many more "6 month milestones" we will "celebrate" until Mia is home.


As I have reflect back on our journey so far and especially now I am reminded that God is in control and He has the perfect child chosen for our family. In His timing she will join our family and we will know the exact reason why we had to wait. I am confident that when that moment finally does arrive it will all make sense and the wait will be just a distant memory.

Congrats! You are closer to your daughter. Keep reminding yourself that God is in control, and that He does ALL things well.

Let's keeping hoping for a speed-up!

Hang in there,

It is a milestone for sure! I pray the next 6 months go as quickly as the last 6 for both of us!
