Sorry for the break from blogging. It was unintentional as for a few days we were without a computer while it got fixed (some sort of virus on it). Once we got it back, I just have not had a lot of extra time to post. Actually, even now I don't have a ton of time to post as Z is just about to wake up from her nap, and M is swinging in the swing for her nap. :)
I will say, part of the reason for not posting, is that I was feeling down for awhile. I just have been filled with many doubts of when this adoption would happen, how it would happen, etc. Our profile wasn't coming in and I was just feeling so sad about it all.
However, my little bit of hope today was that our proof copy of our family profile came in! So, next Monday we will take that and get 10 copies made. Those 10 copies will be mailed to different agencies around the US for potential birthmoms to view. Yay! One step closer again! :)
Also, we had been contacted with a potential situation, but decided that this particular sitation was not for us. Pray with us that we would know in the future always if we are to say "yes" or "no". Saying "no" is very hard and we want peace around either answer.
Just a side note-we have decided as a family that we will be sharing limited information on our child's situation (family, drug exposure, etc.). We are doing this because we feel that it is up to our child to share this information when he/she is old enough. Also, we do not want our son or daughter to be defined by the situation he/she comes from, but rather be defined by Christ who heals all pasts and knows the future.
Keep praying and believing with us.
