Progress: It has been 1 year + 2 months since we were approved to adopt.
How I'm feeling: In this moment, I'm okay. So that's a good thing.
Craving: Something a little sweet to finish off my meal. I just had a Mexican Omelet. Now I would like, hm, a Chocolate Strudel?
Thoughts about our child: The other day I caught myself thinking, I wonder what my kid(s) will think of me? And then I very quickly decided that was probably not a good route to go down, because it only matters what God thinks of me, and I can't live my life wondering what others think of me (so rarely they even are thinking about you at all, eh?!)
Thoughts about our child's expectant mom: Where are you at in life? I'm sorry you are going to have to go through the difficult times coming up.
Most recent baby purchase/gift: Nothing. There's a lot we need yet that I wish we had, though.
This month God: Has reminded me that He died for me, personally. That believing in the historical Jesus, the Son of God, the one who loves everyone, and died on a cross to save the world from death - is not enough to save me. But that believing that He died personally for me, that I deserved to die because I was a sinner - I couldn't meet God's requirements to be perfect - and He took my place instead because only He was perfect enough to be that final sacrifice - that is what saved me. Praise God; without Him I am nothing.
