I'm Back!!!

WOW! It has been a long, long time since I have posted! We are still kicking. I have just been in a slump. I have some extremely difficult things happening at work and David has been recovering from his surgery that he had a few weeks ago! We have been CRAZY busy!

I hope that you guys haven't given up reading our blog even though we haven't had much for you to read lately. I really aspire to write so much more but I work all day at work and then I put in a few hours at home so I have no time. David is busy getting ready to sit for the first part of his CPA test. Prayers, please!

Well, we got our second call yesterday about a potential match with a birthmom. Apparently she found our profile on the internet and contacted our local agency. They mailed off our profile today as she is in another town. I'm just keeping it in the back of my mind. I was so excited last time and my heart broke in half when we were not chosen. So...I am keeping a lid on it this time. We will let you know. A call is exciting but then the fear of rejection looms!

A nice gentleman named Blake that was at our playgroup the other night had a great piece of advice he shared. He and his wife have adopted once before and they have been waiting for about 9 months for their second child. He was saying how he was getting anxious and he said he had just prayed that the waiting wouldn't be the first thing on his mind everyday. How simple?! But how true? I am going to start doing the same thing. Somedays it feels like it will never happen...like it's just this thing in the back of your mind. Other days it feels like it's just around the corner. So for all of you that are waiting...my prayers are with you tonight. May God speed the process and keep our minds busy while we suffer through the difficult wait.

Amen! Waiting is very difficult...We only had one person look at our profile in 5 months, before Rebekah found us. Each month that went by was torturous - I was beginning to think there was something wrong with us...why wasn't anyone looking at us??? Turns out God has a special plan (I know we hear that all the time and in this situation it's just too hard to believe). But when I look back now it all makes sense.

Hang in there!

I'm praying for y'all. Jennifer...peace, patience, and ability to keep working and moving until you get an answer which seems to take an ETERNITY! We're in this whole adoption thing together...talk to you soon!
