We have already been waiting longer to be matched the second time around, which has been a surprise to me. I thought it would be quicker. That's okay! God's timing is perfect and I keep telling everyone (and myself) that. Anyway, I thought I would write out the timeline for this time like I did for Luke's. It might not be as exact because I haven't kept track as well as the first time. Here goes!
