I think I spoke too soon. That or Baby Joaquin, wherever he may be, got jealous that I said his adoption was easy but his sister's was full of drama. Some things have come to light in the past 48 hours that have left me with a very unsettled heart. Unfortunately, I can't share details...yet. But I do have a very specific prayer request please!
Would you please pray that the baby whose referral I receive is indeed the baby that God has intended for me? That this baby's adoption would come to full fruition.
On a positive note, my updated home study is on it's way to me (for the Congo) of which I will turn right around and send off to USCIS. My fingerprints were redone in March so this is the last thing I need to do to update his immigration. As of now, it is set to expire July 8th. It feels really good to know that in one aspect I am actually ahead of the game!
I did ask my caseworker if she's heard of any new babies coming to the orphanage and she said...no. They are still processing the 2 babies that came last month.
At the end of the day, I know that God is in control. Someone in my Congo group said some very wise words today. She reminded me that God is there to guide and sustain us. Amen.
