From the beginning, I have just asked The Lord to show us where we fit in this whole adoption picture. There are so many needy children- about 147 million unfortunately. There are needs here through the foster system, adoption from birth and then the vast world of international adoption.
As I prayed about it and researched it almost 2 years ago, doors shut everywhere I went, with the exception of Russia. Hence, that is where I thought God was leading our family.
That may still be where we are to go. Just not sure. Jim has really felt led to explore more possibilites within the foster care system. So, we go back to our knees, back to asking questions, back to researching. I admit that I am a bit disappointed that we are up in the air again. On the other had, I am relieved that Jim and I are both unified in pursing adoption. No one is wanting to run the other way. :)
I see more excitement and enthusiasm in Jim than in the past. That's great to see.
I really feel as if something will happen soon. Just not sure if it will be a foster care child or a Russian one.
Lord, please barricade any door that we shouldn't walk through. Lead us to the child we should bring home!
