someone asked today, "where are you in the process?"
with a sigh, i replied, "we're waiting."

i go on.
 "we've done everything we can do. 
we've worked like crazy since february. 
now there's nothing left to do on our end."

just wait. 

then our neighborhood librarian finds me among the books
 the same afternoon.
"shauna, tell me what's going on with the adoption?"
"really?" i ask myself. 
"is this what the next 6-12 months will be?"

a report of nothingness?

i looked at her for a minute and realized that it's been 
a while since we last talked.
i told her of our approved paperwork in india.
of being one of the 100 the first of august.
of just a two week wait to hear of our orphanage match.
of our mound of paperwork being completed.
of a fed ex confirmation that our paperwork 
made it to the orphanage two weeks ago.

a report of nothingness?

how mistaken i was. 
though we are waiting.
He is working.
though we see no movement.
He is taking action.
for all the little children of the world.

"for we look not to the things that are seen, but to the things that are unseen." 2 Corinthians 4.18

pray for her. He knows her name.
pray for them. the orphanage personnel.
 He works among those that don't know His Name.

"so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth."
 Philippians 2.10

thank you for continuing to journey with us to india and back.
i close my eyes and see your faces. 
oh, how blessed she is to have you interceding on her behalf.

a report of nothingness?

He is at work bring about nothing less than His best!
