It just keeps getting complicated! ;)

This has been such a strange 48 hours around here! You would have to read my previous post to fully understand, but within 8 hours, we were told or were seeking information about THREE precious children available for us to adopt!


Just over two weeks ago, we had applied to adopt little "I"...a 5 year old boy originally from the Congo. We were pretty certain that he would be ours...and so was the adoption worker. However, as I was expecting to get the email or phone call confirming our thought, I instead got the email saying that he was being returned to his home in the United States. (it's complicated and for privacy issues, I don't think I should explain...)

Anyway, I cried a LOT for a few days and then decided to move forward with other avenues of adoption. I returned his clothes that I bought...started putting away what I had out to make his bedroom cute....etc...

SOOOO....yesterday....drum roll, please.....we got the email saying he was available and that I needed to call immediately! So I did! (of course...) I was able to talk to the adoption agency and we were basically chosen for him!

We have a conference call set up for Saturday night and if that goes well, we will travel to the other side of the United States to meet him! (just in time for his 6th birthday! I think this prospective Mommy will need to go shopping! WooHoo...shopping for this little boy!!!)

He is beautiful! He plays the violin and speaks French and English! He's brilliant! Did I mention that he's beautiful and brilliant?????? Well, he is...just in case you weren't aware....

Please pray for our decision...and his parents' decision and his decision! He's had some difficulty and we really feel like we want him to WANT to be our little boy. It's going to be a hard adjustment for us all...but with the Lord's help, I'm sure we can do it!

Oh, by the way, my birthday is this Sunday and my husband asked me what I wanted...I told him "a little child." Maybe my birthday wish will come true!


  1. I can't keep up with all of the changes and starts and stops. Just praying that it all comes out right...smile.
    What a birthday gift that would be.....

  2. We'll pray you birthday wish comes true.
