waiting hearts

And another month passes by. It's been a quiet month for referrals - too quiet for my waiting heart.

Lately, Kazia has been asking if we can adopt. We hadn't formally told her anything, and I debated on it now as she's not gifted with patience. But I did tell her. And as I expected, she was thrilled; I saw that fast beating heart smile. At night in bed she pours over the book on Ethiopia I bought used from the library.

Dare I think about this, but I do hope that things will work out - I'd hate for her precious heart to be crushed too.

And this waiting heart of mine grows weary...impatient.

How long?
