So Close Yet So Far Away

I may not be there yet, but I'm closer than I was yesterday. ~Author Unknown

We were so close yet so far away!  Ryan and I went to China this summer, and I kept thinking while we were there just how close we were to India.  I wanted to yell out, "Baby, I'm on your side of the world!"  We loved China, but I'm ready for India.

Here are few pictures of our travels.

Any News???

Because your steadfast love is better than life,
    my lips will praise you.
So I will bless you as long as I live;
    in your name I will lift up my hands.
My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food,
    and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips
Psalm 63:3-5

Would you like to hear the words I hear a lot lately?

Any news?  

Have you heard anything?

Have you got a referral yet?

Any word?

Have you heard any news?

 My is answers are "No!"  "Nope!"  "Not a thing!" and "No, but please keep on praying!"

I've had someone ask me if it bothers me how everyone continues to ask, "Any news???"  Not a all!!!  I find it a great blessing that our friends and family care about us.  How wonderful it is that people continue to pray for these many, many months for our family and the baby to come!   And one day soon when we get good news, we will have many people rejoicing with us.  We could not be more thrilled at how many people love orphans and are so excited about there being one less.  We are thankful for those who care enough to ask because they are remembering the lonely child on the other side of the world and the promise that "God sets the lonely in families"  Psalm 68:6.

So keep on asking and most importantly, please keep on praying!!!  We hold strong to Philippians 1:6, "being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion."
