Adoption Frustration....

I'll be honest. The past few weeks in our adoption journey have been so frustrating that I haven't felt like blogging...so that is why my posts have been so few and far between! Our home study is STILL not finalized!! And it was supposed to be done weeks ago....*sigh* Really, I ddin't pray for patience!!! I know God in His perfect plan has a reason for all these delays. I know it in my mind, but I am having a hard time dealing with my frustration. We are waiting for our home study to be done so we can 1) File the I-800A, a form with the US government that gives us the official approval to adopt and 2) so we can apply for some adoption grants.

It is so easy in our finite mind to get frustrated when God's timing doesn't match up to what we think should happen. It is so hard to trust God and be patient! Please pray with us that our home study is finalized this week so we can move on to the next step. Please pray with us that God will give us wisdom and show us the right child for our family. Please pray with us that Mission 1:27 will grow and we will be able to meet the needs of children around the world. I believe God has a specific plan and even though I can't see all the pieces to the puzzle, I know His hand is guiding us. Thanks to everyone who is holding us up in prayer. This journey could not be done without you.
