now we wait....again

i am physically and emotionally exhausted! but it is such a great feeling to know that we have finally done all the we can do. we can now take a step back and watch God move. today's meeting with our case worker was so wonderful. we discussed different scenarios that could come up and what we would be open for. we talked about legal risks and post placement visits. everything was so informative and slightly overwhelming. but i think we are in a great place right now.

we know that we have done our part and it's time to start the waiting game. we have not been "offically" approved yet but there is nothing left for us to take care of. i have had several people ask how long until we are placed with a baby and honestly, there is no definite answer. our agency has told us that from this point we are to expect the unexpected. every story is different.

so, while we wait, i have tons of things i want to do. at some point soon, i want to work on the nursery. it is hard to make decisions since we won't know if we will be chosen for a boy or a girl. but there are still a few things that can be done now. i also really really want to make this. maybe ill do that this week! i have big plans for this idea. it seems like a really large project but the guest room will turn into the nursery and the grandparents will need somewhere to sleep! clay and i also have a wonderful weekend vacation planned for this beautiful place. go ahead and take a look at some of their cabins because they are fantastic! we will be getting together with two other couples for this much needed getaway and i couldn't be more excited about it. im hoping that all these exciting things will help the waiting not be so hard. ill let you know how they all turn out!! :o)


  1. I'm so excited that yall are just waiting on your baby now! I'm so glad you're getting to adopt! adoption is an awesome thing and a beautiful picture of the gospel-how God redeemed and adopted his children, never to let them go. -w wood
