Although we turned in our application the week following Father's Day, there doesn't seem to be too much movement on the end of our agency. Our adoption specialist seems to have a double title of Domestic Infant Adoption Specialist and Birtmother Counselor - which seems like a lot for one person to do. Please pray for Bethany as you pray for our patience, love, kindness, gentleness and understanding.
There is a woman or young lady (that we don't even know!) that the Lord has set aside for us to carry a baby for us. She will undoubtedly be making one of the most difficult decisions of her life. Please pray and continue to be in prayer for the birth mother.
Please pray for our preparedness of being parents. I know that nothing ever prepares you but I must admit that I have been questioning if I am ready to be a mom.
The money required to complete this process isn't in our pockets. This is a reality that is testing my faith. I keep researching fundraising ideas and wondering if I shouldn't pick up a second job (ok, maybe obsessing!) when I know that the Lord knows ours needs. Not that I just kick back and do nothing - making myself exempt from responsibility for action - but I just need to chill out about it and really just trust Him. And please know that I am open to suggestions in regards to this area!! But I need prayer :-)
Thank you so much!!!
