Fall fun…

My only adoption update today is I got a phone call today that went like this:
“Have you or Richard ever lived in another county in GA besides Fulton???”
“Me, no. Richard…would college count?”
Awwww man. I knew exactly where she was going. Richard went to UGA in Clarke County. Gotta call Clark County now and get the DHR to fax a clearance of his background. Gotta have one for every county you’ve lived in. She said I’d need to know the address of where he lived too. Hmmm…anyone know the address of the SAE house at UGA? After we get that…we should be good to go.
I’m learning with adoption when you think you are DONE…you are just CLOSE to being done:)
Just another sidetrack created by God to put us in line at the PERFECT time to carefully line us up with OUR baby…the one He chose for us before creation. I am going to wait patiently Lord.
On waiting:
“If the Lord makes us wait let us do it with our whole hearts! He is worth waiting for. The waiting itself is beneficial to us: it tries faith, exercises patience, trains submission, and endears the blessing when it comes. The Lord’s people have always been a waiting people.” -C.H.Spurgeon

I love your attitude. It is teaching me so much.

I am not adopting (yet-oohh…weird to type that :)–sometimes those timelines many of my wonderful adoptive mommies have freak me out–but you have so encouraged me by your attitude. Many of them encourage me too, but…

Just wanted you to know YOU are an encouragement.

We are right there with you. Who knew it would take so long to approve a homestudy. Our dossier is just sitting on the table waiting to be shipped with the approved homestudy. I keep telling myself though that this is all in God's timing, so since it is not ready, it must mean our baby is not ready.
