Things have been happening.
.. Big, scary, exciting, stressful things. Some things we can talk about, others we can’t. We are asking you to pray big prayers for us right now! I know you’re all going to wonder about the things we can’t talk about, but trust me when I say we’ll share what we can share when we can share it…if in fact there are things we have to share. (Vague enough for you?! HAHA!)
As many of you know from my facebook page, things went a little crazy with our home study. The shorter version of a very long story is this: The agency that completed our home study has decided to no longer do this part of the Adoption business. This means that when they turn in their license they can no longer be the “holder” of our completed home study. For us, that meant that we needed to have our completed home study transferred to another agency to hold for us. By law, certain parts of the home study must be completed by the holding agency so we had a very short amount of time to re-do a few portions of our home study in order for it to remain active. We were frazzled. We were stressed and I was feeling a bit defeated.
However, I’m being reminded of the fact that God uses ALL things for our good and we are beyond confident that He has called us to add to our family through adoption. This new agency that is/will be holding our home study has been phenomenal to work with. They also advocate for and help place special needs children who are in need of a forever family. If you know me, you know that this is very near and dear to my heart. While the transition has been stressful, I think in the long run it’s another step in the right direction for us to be able to meet our baby!
We’ve had several people ask if switching home study agencies means that we have to start all over on the financial end of things. Absolutely not! While there was a small financial setback that occurred with the switch, the majority of what we’ve raised and paid towards our adoption so far is unaffected. We are still fundraising and planning and working and dreaming up ideas to gather the rest of what we need to be fully funded. The timeline is so unknown. We are learning that things can move very quickly and then suddenly stop and back track a few steps and then take off in lightening speed again before we can catch our breath! I’ll be honest, the fear remains in my heart that we’ll be matched and then not have the money that we need to make it happen. But at the same time I know that I have to trust God. He’s already done so much. I know that He won’t fail us now.
