This weekend I didn't get much done on the adoption paperwork. Julia had her birthday, and Andrew had a pancake breakfast for baseball. He is our only boy doing baseball this year because all the other boys would rather sit in the stands and catch fly balls that they could redeem for a soda at the snack bar. Finding out that our mailbox key would not go in because someone snapped a key off in the hole didn't help-- because there are adoption docs in it! Ugh-- hopefully the post office will fix it soon and meanwhile deliver our mail to our door.
This weekend I reconnected with a friend who has blessed our socks off! Still leaves me speechless, and in awe of our Heavenly Father and how He loves to surprise His children. Thank you for your new friendship. I hope that it continues to blossom!
And praising the Lord for a $500 donation too!
The Lord is so faithful.
What a testimony to His timely provision as you read our bit of disappointing news.
Late last night I got an email that explained that we cannot do a simple readoption when we get home to include John on the new birth certificate. John will be doing a regular adoption of the kids which will require four post-placement visits increasing the cost by over $1100.
This is not too surprising to us since we know adoption is full of surprises. If anything, the timing of everything just confirms to us how in control God is.
I'll keep you updated!
Now onto a fun picture of a family that bought cookies last week!
Thank you so much!
