The heart of man plans his way,
but the Lord establishes his steps.
More research into programs and agencies... more prayer... seeking His direction and peace.
We are not particular about what country we need to adopt from, but the adoption program and agency we use needs to be a good fit for our family.
So now we are waiting to hear back if we qualify for the China Special Needs program. If not that, then it looks like Ethiopia. There are many needs everywhere. Different parts of the world. Millions of orphans. We can't change the world, but we can change the world for one.
We have been able to check many things off our list as we wait: physicals, police clearances, Hague-compliant international adoption training, etc. This will help us to be able to move quicker when our exact adoption direction is clear.
Oh, and if you're filling sippy cups for us, we will print new labels when we know what country we will be adopting from.
And so, we're trusting that this path is the one God wants us on. We're believing that God will lead us to just the right little one for our family. A little girl that will be our beloved daughter and we trust that, one day, she will put her trust in Christ and become an adopted daughter of the King!
