later rather than sooner

ryan finally got in touch with our SW this morning. we have an appointment with her on october 7th since 3 months has passed since her last visit. she didn't really give us much hope that we should expect to get a placement any time soon. her exact words were, "just keep living your life as if you're not getting a placement any time soon. then, when you do finally get a placement, you'll be surprised." hmmm...not exactly what i was hoping to hear. something like, "it should be any day now" or "i have some children in mind for you all" would have been great, but oh well!

now i'm wondering if we'll even have a placement by christmas, which really makes me sad. i thought for sure that last year would be our last christmas with just the two of us. anyways, i'm trying to remember today that God's timing is perfect and He doesn't have to work within the boundaries of our social services office. we'll just keep plugging away and hopefully we'll be a more completed family soon!

*"so when they met together, they asked him, 'Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to israel?' He said to them: 'it is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority." -Acts 1:6-7
*"trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight." -Proverbs 3:5-6
