a bump in the road

Today didn't bring about the news we had expected-but then with everything we know about adoption, maybe we should have planned on something out of the ordinary. I won't go into the details, but while we will get to meet Adrienne tomorrow, we won't be able to bring her home. It is our hope that sometime next week placement will happen. The particular circumstances are out of our control, yet we still feel a peace and confidence that Adrienne Christine will be our daughter. The more we hear, the more we see God's hand on this. I don't believe that God has to give signs in order for something to take place, but I feel like He's let certain things happen that allowed us to know that this is the child for us.

Thank you for your continued prayers as we watch everything unfold. We are dying to have her with us, yet understanding that God has everything in control. It's a good place to be, but certainly not the easiest! I'll update tomorrow after we meet her. I can't wait.

I am so excited for you and your family! My two nieces are adopted, and I know what joy they have brought to my family. I do remember the ups and downs of adoption. I remember crying many tears with my sister-n-law and brother. In the end GOD Blessed them with two angels!! I can't wait for you to feel that joy!! I will continue to pray for you and your family.

Love in Christ,
