Something Tangible!

So today was one of those days in our adoption journey that I woke up thinking to myself, "will we ever get our referral call?" and, "Is this really going to happening?".  Unlike a pregnancy, we don't have a child to feel moving in the womb or even an ultrasound. As soon-to-be adoptive parents, we have numbers. We wait. We wonder. And then we wait some more. To help us see something tangible as we wait for our precious baby or babies I made a countdown chain type thing for our waitlist numbers. We hung them in our living room today so we can see them everyday and continue to be reminded of our child.

"I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him".
1 Samuel 1:27


  1. What a great idea! I may have to steal that so my kids can have a visual to see how close we are. Where did you find the cute template?

  2. Megan and Andrew...great idea. God has not and will not forget your prayers. He cares and loves you both so much! He has already specifically chosen your child or children for you. How exciting to see Him work. Love u both...mom
