Adoption Update

In my last adoption update I wrote of our hopeful expectation that we would adopt a baby this month. Sadly, it now appears that it is falling through. There were several situations that looked like near shoe-ins, but one-by-one each of those birthmothers surprised the adoption agency and us by changing their minds about adoption after the baby's birth.

We are somewhat dejected today but want to avoid the impatience of Sarai (remember that episode with Hagar?). Please pray for us.

Speaking from personal experience, there is a child that is meant for your family. It will happen in God's timing. God's timing is not our timing.
One of our sweet little foster babies was ordered back to her birth mother by a judge on the same day that one of our adopted children was born. Of course we didn't know that at the time and I thought my heart was going to break.
I still pray daily for that child as her situation was quite awful and probably still is. We have to trust in the Lord's sovereignty.
I am praying for your family. The good Lord knows what He is doing.

Thank you, Suzanne.

I am so sorry! I was wondering how it was going. I will be praying that your family will have peace through the whole process.

We prayed for you Tuesday night at Bible study. It's hard to be patient but I pray God will give you peace as you wait for your baby.

I'm sorry for your disappointment. But I praise God for folks like you and Kristin who are eagerly wanting children in a culture that is so anti-child. :-)
