Benaiah is 7 Months-old Today

Some days are good, and some days are harder than others.

Today, Benaiah is 7 months-old. We got his referral when he was 4 1/2 months-old, and we will not hold him until he is over 9 months.

I remember this age with our other three. They were so helpless, just learning to sit, and the cutest ever!

Assuming we get through court and travel in late October/early November, we are about half-way through our 5-month wait between our referral and travel. UGH.

Kinda depressing.

Susan - My heart aches for what He's asking you to walk out. Every babe needs a momma's arms. I encourage you to pour your heart out before the Lord. He cares when we hurt. He is for your good! He is for Benaiah's good! Don't let the enemy steal the joy of this great and amazing thing the Lord has done in placing this little one into your family and into His kingdom. Blessings! - Sherry :)

Take care,
