This evening, I cried. The wait is long and hard and worth it. Most days, I hold it all together quite well, but tonight a good cry was a good release. As the tears flowed and John (very sweetly and patiently) reminded me of how close we are to going to get Naiya, he said, “Hey, look, a ladybug”.
There was a ladybug on our dining room chandelier- right above where I was sitting.
Ladybugs are a special symbol in the China adoption community. When a ladybug shows up, it’s viewed as good luck and a reminder that great things are heading your way- like a precious child!
I am not superstitious, but I do believe in God’s perfect timing and reminding me that He sees and He knows and that our waiting is not in vain.
Thankful. Ready to go get her. Realize that God wants us to trust Him. And reminded that “those who wait on the Lord will renew their strength”.
Liking this ladybug today.
