Hello! I have just hung my first load of laundry out on the clothesline! (However, I can't find my clothespins so my mattress protectors may find themselves in the neighboring farmer's field...)
We have started the process to try to find out about little "M"...a five year old little boy in foster care. We had to update our homestudy and Jennie and I had to get new fingerprinting done since ours were over a year old now.
Our agency will submit our homestudy and then find out more information about him. Then we can decide if we want to pursue it. Other families will most likely be pursuing his adoption as well so we just have to wait and see....and pray...and hope...and try not to get MY hopes up too much!
We won't know any decision until mid June....what a LONG wait!
Until then, I guess we can concentrate on organizing and cleaning our home...something that needs to be done anyway!
Marci's wedding is in LESS THAN TWO WEEKS!!!! We are pretty well ready, yesterday we bought some more things for the meal for the wedding. It may sound strange, but we are having a "pasta buffet"....it is something we all love and it will be less expensive to do than to do a big catered meal. None of us are wealthy and it just isn't wise to go into great debt to have a lavish wedding. I'm sure it will be nice and I have a friend who is going to help me!
It is a little sad because we were planning to have our child home with us by now but the adoption just hasn't gone as we expected. We had thought that we would have a little girl in our family and that she would be a flower girl. We bought a matching flowergirl basket but her basket will remain empty.
God sees and knows all things...I need to keep that in mind. He knows which child He wants us to have, boy or girl, toddler or older. I'm beginning to accept that now where before I was adamant what "I" wanted. I'm glad that God is working in my heart and life and I really want what HE wants for us and for our future child. I was telling Roger just last night that I honestly don't have the same wish that I had a year or two ago. Now I just want to have who GOD wants us to have.
I am SURE that I will have all the love in the world to give to that special child God has picked out for us!
Many Blessings on You This Lord's Day!
Have a lovely day!
