No Referral for Now

We talked with Jana this week and George is back from Hungary.  He does not have a referral for us at this time.  We are encouraged that he is working diligently to find our Lizzie - the right child for us.
We know God's timing is perfect.  George will continue to work on our situation and others while he is in Canada and will continue to travel to and from Hungary - not really on any kind of "schedule" as I understand it.
Thank you for your continued prayers and encouragement.
My Word for the week has been "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding." Prov. 3:5

Praying Boldly!

We got an e-mail from Jana, our Social Worker, today.  She did not have any news, but did say that she plans to talk with George, the Hungarian Facilitator, this week.  I am praying boldly that he will have a referral for us!  There are so many "what ifs"that are trying to cross my mind, but I am truly thankful to have a word from Jana.  And... it's not bad news.  So we are rejoicing today.  We still feel that it will be soon.  I have asked God to give me some kind of feeling on this if we are wrong.  We are content to wait as long as it takes.  That has been my prayer this week - that if it's not to be soon, to know that.  This week I have received a text from a precious praying friend, an e-mail from another and had a very blurry dream about a toddler on my hip!  And then, finally, an e-mail from Jana today!  God is in all of these little details.  I am so thankful for that.  I was thinking today about how sweet it will be to tell Lizzie about all of the people that literally "prayed" her here!  I am truly grateful to be surrounded by praying friends!
Thank you!
God is good!

Praying and Hoping

We have not heard anything in close to 5 weeks!  Each day I pray it could be the day for our referral, and at the end of each day I praise God for choosing this path for us and for all that He is teaching us in this process. God is good!  God knows Lizzie and how many hairs are on her head and I am confident that He will lead us to her in His time!
Thank you for praying!
