Matching???

The word on the street...ok, the word at RQ is that matching is ready to begin!! The family files are ready. The baby files are ready. Now.... ready, set, match!

I often wonder what it will be like for the 'matcher' when she/he opens up my file and Hannah's file. You see, God prepared this match long, long ago and this person is being used on earth to complete what God began. Will they open our files and go....this one is easy!!

'For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.' Jeremiah 29:11

I don't know all the details about 'how' it will happen I just know that it will!

The next question is, when will referrals arrive? How long after matching does 'the stork' (aka: the courier :o) pick them up? That varies month to month but I still believe it will be sometime next week when they arrive. I hope we hear cutoff rumours before the weekend and I'll have a better idea if Hannah's referral is inculded in this month's referrals or, if I'll need to wait another month. So close and yet as you can see, still many unanswered questions. Oh well, still content (excited, giddy, crazy in love....but content) to wait for God's perfect time. How cool would it be if God's perfect time was NEXT WEEK?????

I'm enjoying all the guesses coming in for Hannah's birthday and province. There's still time to enter your guess! What fun to learn of so many readers coming out of lurkdom who are new to me. Welcome!!!

Now....off to check RQ for the third time today and it's only 6:47am. Ohhhh, it's gonna be a loooong day!!

  2. Oh, Catherine... I am so excited for you. And it truly is amazing to look around at the children and families in your orphanage travel group and see God's hand in the matching. I mean, no where on any documents did it say that the Tongginator had SPD... or that I also had it. Amazing!

  3. Catherine, you always post so beautifully. I share in every sentiment. My prayers are that we both see are precious daughter's faces next week. Am at peace as well, but also giddy with excitement.

  14. This following days will be like torture, will July be our month or not? Sometimes when I read on RQ I have a feeling that of course it will be, then I read something else on the site and the hope is gone -talk about roller coaster into the end. 3 days would be "a piece of cake" since we have had several 6-days-batches lately but knowing that we are so many with LID 21, 22 and 23 March makes it so unsecure.
    In a few days we will know and I keep all my fingers crossed for July being our month.
    Take care!

  18. It gives me chills to think that Hannah's file is sitting with your file. Come on already, send sweet Hannah your way. I am wondering if anyone is cleaning the dust off of our file with a 3/29 date? I can't wait to see Referral day for you and am just praying that it will happen next week!
