Yep, now it's really, REALLY official. I know I've been saying it for a while now, as we've inched to this stage of our journey... but now it's really, really, REALLY true! We met with Sharon, the INCREDIBLE director of Christian Family Services in Rock Hill today. When a meeting begins with a hug you'd give a long awaited friend, is peppered throughout with joyful and heartfelt tears, and ends hand in hand in prayer- I have to believe our Father is well pleased!
We turned in our adoption portfolio, the last of our home study funds, a final form... and now we wait. We wait for our Father to bring Ruth's birthmom to Sharon. We wait for Him to give Sharon incredible wisdom and discernment as she meets with the birthmom. We wait for the Lord to make my cellphone ring with the call we've been waiting for months for. We wait for the Lord to make our decision clear. And we wait for the Lord to bring Ruth safely into this world and into our arms. We wait...
Thank you to all of you that have faithfully lifted us up in prayer up to this point in our adoption journey. We are so blessed to call you all family. We are eager to bring Ruth into this beautiful family of Christ that will walk along side her as she grows to know and love our Lord.
|Thank you to our loving and supportive "birth families!" We love you all so much!|
