Sorry it’s been a minute since we’ve posted. Things have been a little crazy, for a while our adoption process was put on pause. Here’s what I mean, we recently started the process of buying a house. We’ve talked about the idea of it for a while, but didn’t think it was the right time. Well we found the right house, for the right price (less than what we’re paying in rent 🙄). After discussing this with our adoption case worker, we were told everything would have to stop until we closed on the house. Boy, did that worry this mama-to-be. But we knew this is what the Lord was leading us to do, and because He is faithful we decided to trust Him through it.
That was in January that our adoption process hit the pause button. Last week, our case worker emailed us saying their team in Macedonia is so excited about our adoption that they want us to go ahead and send our dossier information, even without our closing on the house. Commense major freak out. “They want it all?! We haven’t done anything because we thought we couldn’t!” Deep breath.
So this week we have been busting our booties to get every last thing checked off our list, and boom the Lord has been faithful to open every door in order to get it done. He is our Good Good Father!
So here we are stuffing an envelope with every detail of our life (minus the house 😉). This is the info Macedonia will then use to match us with our sweet child. Y’all, I’m just so ready to see his or her face. The Lord has been so good to us, and is faithful to bring this to completion.
- Pray for our dossier to arrive in Macedonia in a timely manner, and that they are able to process it as quickly as possible.
- Pray for Dan as he continues to work through his seminary degree.
- Pray for Em as she looks into a new possible ministry opportunity.
- Pray for us both as we lead weekly small group bible studies.
- Pray for our marriage that we would continue to strive towards an Ephesians 5:22-33 marriage.
