Well friends....what can I tell you? There's not much news to report in our adoption journey. Not outwardly anyway. God's working on our insides all the time but things are generally slow. I figured I should post something or you all might quit reading this - if anybody is still reading!?!?
I can report that we recieved our "completion of training" certificate last week. So we are all official on that. We've attended all of our classes and our meetings but we will still go to all the meetings that we can even though we have met the requirements for those. They are invaluable!!!
We have bought a few more baby things. Everybody keeps saying that there will be nothing left to buy us for a shower! Not true! We will need boy/girl specifics and diapers and wipes and gift cards for formula and something for 3 months and up! So far we are just gender neautral in 0-3 stuff. So all you who say there is nothing left - please don't worry!!! We will leave you things to purchase should you desire to do so.
So...my heart has especailly been heavy with a friend of mine that' s in a bad situation. It's obviously bad. It's red lipstick written on white walls bad! The kind everyone knows is bad without even knowing the details. You know how you just get those feelings and you just know. It's a look in someone's eye across the room and an understanding that - Hey, things are not what they seems here are they? I'm not mentioning names here. So friend, if you are reading this you know who you are and I want you to know that I am praying for you. God knows every need be them spoken or unspoken. So I will keep it between me and you - unspoken - just please remember not to be afraid to ask your friends for help, support, etc. We are here for you and we've got room for you both in our hearts and our homes if need be. Distance is irrelevant!!!
