Of course it has been a while since my last post--time just flies by! I am sure that time is going to start flying by even faster once we get that sweet baby!!
The adoption process is going well--we have our 3rd (of 3) homestudy meeting next Thursday and then we will be waiting for the final approval to be on the waiting families list! We have ALOT of stuff to do between now and then: letters to the birthparents, some online trainings, our profile book, and to finalize some fundraising opportunities! It's funny how this process started out sooooooo slow, and now we are in a mad rush to finish some things up. However, once we are approved, the hard part begins....W....A...I...T....I...N...G! (Praying that it wont be too long)
We continue to see the hand of the Lord throughout this process, which is what is keeping us sane :) We trust His timing and that He will provide!
Here are some things that you can be praying for:
--That the Lord will continue to provide the finances necessary to pay for this adoption
--Pray for us to be content as we wait...we have lots of friends that are pregnant or with new babies (we are super excited for all of them) but sometimes we find ourselves longing for our baby to be here--pray that we will continue to trust in the Lord's timing!
--Pray that we would be wise with our time in the next couple of weeks as we work to finish all the necessary tasks needed to be placed on the waiting family list
--Pray for us as we make some pretty tough decisions about what kind of baby we will accept (this, by far, is the hardest part of this process)
I will leave you with a few pics from our recent family photo session--some of these pics will be used in our profile book! Thanks for praying!
