Adoption Update

Sometimes, so much happens that I have to take a few days to let it sink in and process before I share it on my blog. So many things are going on this month and I want to focus just on adoption today.

I know that I shared last month that we were very excited and a little discouraged that our home study had been sent in. We were excited to finally have it approved and complete and discouraged it was taking so long. Everyone that went through the process with us has already been approved, why has ours not even been sent to the state yet? This whole time we have been going through this, I felt that I HAD to do something to feel like I was trying to grow my family. Going through the classes helped me to feel active. I really thought we would complete the classes and our home study and things would go without a hitch.

The more time passes the more it seems that things are not working for a reason. We have been faithfully praying that God would give us peace as we decide how to grow our family and I am surprised at how well I have taken the newest news.

Last week we found out that our home study was never sent to the state office last month.

It's a long story but, I am proud of myself for the way I handled the situation. I very politely let my social worker know that I was not pleased my study had been delayed another month. I'm normally so nervous to speak up, but this time I did and I did a good job.

We should have an appointment soon with a Maternal Fetal Specialist, or high risk ob. This doctor seems really nice, much nicer than the last doctor I saw. So, while it seems adoption is not working for us at this moment, it is still something that holds a very special place in my heart and I am am not sure what God has in store for us yet, but I am positive it will all be worth it.
