Today a friend forwarded me an email that I had sent her this time last year asking for prayer as we continued to wait to hear from the Philippines about whether they would choose us to be Merritt’s forever family.
This time last year we were three months into a wait that felt interminable. We had seen a photo of our son, we knew his name, his birthday, a small part of his story. We loved him, but we had to guard our hearts and wait.
What a difference a year makes….
