Jason and I were fingerprinted today … now, before you get the wrong idea, it is all for good.
You see, one of the blessings I have eluded to is that we are currently in the paper chase process pursuing a China adoption. Before Owen, we had talked about adoption, but then, it was our “Plan B.” We would pursue adoption IF we didn’t get pregnant again. Since, we have realized that adoption is not God’s Plan B, nor should it be our Plan B.
God does not make mistakes. And he does not need a backup plan. Adoption was not God’s plan B. You see, Jesus was adopted by his earthly father, Joseph. In addition to Jesus being adopted by Joseph, we can all be adopted into God’s eternal family.
Jason and I had seen adoption to be a second choice after biological children. But, just as God decided that some families will grow through biological children, He has also designed some families to grow through the miracle of adoption.
We are trusting in His plan and His will concerning more biological children, but we do feel that God has placed adoption on our hearts and feel that part of His plan for our family is to expand our family through adoption.
We started the paper chase process earlier this year and are nearing the end of it. Once our dossier is sent to China, the waiting truly begins. The wait time for a little girl from China is increasing every day and is currently a little over three years.
As we are waiting, please join us in praying for the orphans, in praying for the birth mothers who carry these babies, the birth parents who make the unimaginable decision to give these children up, and the other adoptive families who are waiting for their children.
