We are waiting. 

We've been waiting for 2.5 years.

Waiting for a phone call that the kids are moving into visa stage.
Waiting for permission to fly and bring our kids home.
Waiting for the electrician to arrive to put in wiring for the new bedrooms.
Waiting for sheetrock, paint, carpet.
Waiting to see how everyone is going to adjust.

Waiting for two darling children to enter our lives.

Waiting is hard.  I'm not going to lie.  It's hard.  We have no definite answers, no real plan, no idea when all of this is going to happen.

Until then, we wait. We wait in earnest. We wait joyfully. We wait for a promise to be fulfilled.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.  For our light and momentary troubles are achieving in us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
