Still Waiting for Isaiah

We have been waiting for EP approval for five weeks. The average wait time has been said to be from 3 to 6 weeks. We are fairly sure that we will not be in the typical time frame, which is very difficult news for us. We know that at least five groups were submitted for EP in January and as far as we know only one and a half groups have been approved. We need a miracle! Please pray with us that we will get our EP approval soon!

Each day of waiting is getting more and more difficult for Travis and I. We love that people are involved in our adoption process but we are beginning to struggle in knowing how to answer time frame questions. We are tired of saying a month of two... and then no real progress. Please pray for our ability to communicate kindly to others about our process even when there doesn't seem to be movement forward.

While we are waiting....

We installed the baby video monitor that my sister and brother-in-law got for us. We are pretty sure we could seem him in almost all areas of the crib. Now we just hopes he actually sleeps in the crib (at least at some point once he has attached to us).
We filled the closest with lots of clothes... although I am getting worried he will out grow some and the seasons will change and these clothes will be too warm.
We filled his dresser with pj's, diapers, and wipes!
We filled his dresser with lots of pants!
We filled his closet with lots of toys.
The most recent thing I bought were these Crayola color wash cloths. I am so excited to use these during bath time. (People say buying stuff for you son helps ease the pain of not having him home yet- I am trying it, but it hasn't helped a ton.)

Isaiah sure has a wonderful room to come home to! I look forward to seeing pictures of when he gets to discover everything and wear those cute clothes. We're praying for peace for you as you continue to wait...
