I had some very grandiose plans about creating a “mini-series” on my blog laying out our options and analyzing the best next step for our family….blah…blah…blah… It hadn’t happened yet because I figured I had plenty of time….What’s that phrase “When men plan, God laughs”? Something like that…
Saturday changed everything for us. We went to an informational meeting for a local faith-based adoption agency. Originally we hadn’t put much hope into it as an option but were looking more for an overview of the whole process. We had thought that if we did go the adoption route that we would probably go through the state foster/adopt process….again see above quote.
Before we went in I prayed that if this was where we needed to be that God would let us know….and boy did He! It truly felt as though every word they spoke was intended directly for us. The couple things that we had been hesitant about were entirely put to rest. I wrote in an earlier blog that “Hopefully when we’re ready to take the next step God will lead us in the right direction”. It’s amazing to see that actually play out so vividly. It will still be a few months before we even get the ball rolling, but we are both really excited about where God is leading us.
Thank you guys so much for all your prayers and support!!
