"To bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair." Isaiah 61:3

Waiting to Hear....

We are still waiting to hear from our adoption agency if our dossier was submitted and accepted yesterday. I am really nervous that something is wrong because we haven't heard. But, until God says "no", I will trust that everything is going to be fine--It is just soooo hard!

We did receive great news, though, in that the moratorium on adoptions in Bella's country isn't on the docket for voting as expected. So, for right now, it seems that issue is put on the shelf which is awesome news for the families in the final stages of adoption.

We had a 10 hour adoption class with our home study agency yesterday. It was a good class, although it was a really long day. When I got home, I was disappointed that we did not have any news on our adoption. And, the news piece on our family had to be postponed until next week because the young lady doing the story has a wedding this Friday and some family health problems.

I pray that the next time I blog, I will have good news to share about our dossier. Would you pray that whatever God's plan is for this adoption, that I can have peace with it? Thanks! I really need your prayers and encouragement right now!


  1. Prayers for an answer soon, I can't wait to hear!!!

  2. It's not unusual for those of you using an agency to wait a few days to hear it you were submitted... If you think about it, it has to go from your facilitator to your agency, wait for business hours, then the person has to turn around and get it back out to you. So sometimes 2-3 days. And usually no news is GOOD news! Praying all is well :) But feel free to email your agency rep if you don't hear soon too!

  3. On the bright side, that is great news about Bella's country! We will prayer for an answer soon! :-)

  4. Hang in there, as Karla said, your prayer was answered about Belle's country so God has a plan. You will hear soon and it's going to be great news! :)

  5. Praying Paula! Hope you hear back soon so you can relax a bit before you have to start PACKING! :)
