It's National Day in China, which means a week of celebrating for the whole country. It also means the Chinese adoption agency is closed for the week, so no possibility of files for at least a week.
We are settling into our fall routine, but there is always that thought in the back of my head--could this be the day or the week? We don't even know what our daughter looks like. I'm sure once we do, it will be even harder to wait patiently.
Still, the cool mornings herald the progression of seasons, and I'm sure we'll be raking leaves soon. Christmas will come, and another year will be gone. Each day we are given is a gift from God, and waiting or not, we will try to use it for His glory.
