We're having a baby...

Our homestudy was completed today. That's the major step that allows us to adopt, and means that, Lord willing, we will be having a baby.

Today we received a phone call from the agency that placed Faith with us. To make a long story short, since our homestudy is done they showed us to a birthmother with a baby boy that was just born. There's only one other family besides us being shown. She appears committed to adoption, but has until Tuesday night to decide. She liked what she heard about us so far and we'll find out on Wednesday if we are chosen.

The suspense is hard to bear! Maybe we'll fly out next week to pick up our new baby, less than one week after our homestudy is complete! But it's also very possible that this is not the one, and we may go through a wait-and-see period with a string of birthmothers for months.

Either way, you know where our trust is to be. In the good and all-knowing providence of God.

Tim, did you guys ask for a specific gender (I know Grace is always pulling for a girl!), or did you decide to leave that open?

Hi Megan,

This time we thought it best to let God break the boy-girl tie in our family, as he chooses.
