We are out there


Got a call last night about some potential matching situations in the US.There were 5 birth moms looking to match and our adviser there called us to see if she could show them our profile.

What this means is that in the next few days these moms will be looking at our "storybook"(our profile of who we are, where we live, why we want to adopt etc.)and deciding whether to pursue an interview with us to see if a match could happen.

It is exciting to be in the potential category, makes this seem more "real". I have been anticipating the reality of having a little African American baby to call my child, but it just hasn't seemed real until now. Now we are out there and we could be matched...that is unreal...it is a real test in trust. Once you do your paper work, you can't do anything else to control the outcome...that is a challenge for someone like me who likes to be hands on during any process and help get the results I want.


So we wait, but with a bit of a butterfly in our stomachs anticipating some hopeful news :).

Oh, I am cautiously excited for you! I will pray that you will be matched! Trust me, having an African baby (or two...;-)) is WONDERFUL! :-)

Praying for you both!!!!

A special prayer will go out tonight for the birth mother.
I will ask that the Lord give her the strength,courage,wisdom and most important, peace with her choice. I will pray that He will guide her heart directly to your profile and she will feel and know that you are the only choice for her child.
Gods Blessing and peace on both of you as you wait.

Praying for you guys during this anxious waiting period. It just seems to get worse instead of better, doesn't it? May God give you peace as you wait.
