I'm thinking of our child today. I don't know who our child is yet, but God does. And I'm guessing that our child is celebrating the Lunar New Year with his/her Foster Family. I wonder if they're traveling to see relatives? Is our child wearing a hanbok? How about our child's birth parents? Are they able to enjoy the celebrations this year? Are they thinking about our child? I pray that they feel a sense of peace. I pray for them frequently.
I'm bringing B and E to a Lunar New Year celebration near here and meeting up with Grace, Sandra, and Kala this weekend (which means I get to see Carson, "Little" Ben (as E calls him), and Matthew!!!). My friend, G is bringing her kids so hopefully I'll get to see her and I think Becky may be checking in with us too! I am so blessed by the friends I have made through this process. Having this to look forward to this weekend has really helped me through a week when I knew there wouldn't be any news. Korea practically shuts down for 3 days during the Lunar New Year.
Fortunately, I'm also at peace with waiting. I was feeling a bit anxious, but now I really feel like it's OK if it's another month or so. It will all happen in God's perfect timing. I'm at a point where I'm excited but I can wait until then. ;) Enjoy the entrance into the Year of the Rabbit!
