Adoption update!!!

Oh, my goodness, how time flies...I realized that my poor blog has been woefully neglected and it has been almost 2 months since I have posted!!! Time flies looking back, but right now it is going painfully S-L-O-W!!! Earlier this month we requested more information on a little girl off the special home finding list. After looking at her file, and having it reviewed by several medical specialists, and lots of prayer, we decided that she just might be the one for our we proceeded with the adoption, requesting that the Philippines adoption board approve us to be the parents of this little girl. Now the wait is on. We are waiting to see if they will approve us for her. It is in God's hands now, but it is so hard not to get attached to her sweet little face. It has been 1 week since we requested. I have heard of it taking anywhere from a couple weeks to a couple months and I am praying that it will be sooner, rather than later!!!!! Please, please pray with us. Also, we have come to a point in our adoption journey that we need to raise some serious funds. A big chunk of $6,100 is due as soon as (IF) they approve us for this child, and so we are brainstorming and trying to figure out a way to come up with the money. I will be auctioning a bunch of stuff on e-bay pretty soon-all proceeds toward our adoption and we have filled out some more grant paperwork. I am praying for favor and inspiration!!! Please keep us in your prayers. This has been a journey of faith, patience and trust, and the journey has just begun.  Thanks to those of you who have shared financially and prayerfully in our adoption journey! We can't wait to see what God has in store for our family!!!
