Rock Your World and Adoption Changes

Sometimes I feel like God puts situations in our lives to rock our world. To make us think. To ask us, "Do you REALLY trust me?"

This adoption process has been one of those.

Then yesterday morning I was reading something that just fit what I needed.

Write out in detail your will for a situation facing you. Write out definite instructions for God about how you think He should handle it. Then write across it in red ink: Surrendered to the Father. Do Your will in Your way at Your time. Then pray this way: Father, here is my will. You know that I have a will and expectations in every matter, but I choose to lay my will down and not settle for anything less than Your wonderful will. I trust Your love for me and Your wisdom in this situation. Not my will, but Yours, be done.

Whew. I needed that.

So here's where we are with the adoption. We're going domestic. That's a HUGE shift for us. But it's where we are and we have such peace about it.

We are also nearing the end of our home study. We have one more visit scheduled for the beginning of June, some reference letters to receive, and a couple doctors letters and then we're DONE!

Then starts the profile creating and grant applications and all that good stuff. But at least at that point we will be approved to adopt and can move forward with things.
