Well, I'm sure most of you have seen on FaceB already,but Erik and I have re-committed to the adoption,and we are hoping to bring this sweet guy home in a few months!
Isn't he cute? His name is Pacey. I know from our last post about the adoption,it seemed like we were done. And we were. Until we heard from the Lord,we weren't willing to go any farther. We wanted to make sure that we heard His voice in this,and weren't moving our own accord. We donated all of our waiting funds to Pacey,and just went to praying.
However, a few weeks after we took "The Break" God started to do some things that made me think He wasn't quite done yet. There are a few examples,but one thing that happened is that I went to Goodwill with the girls and we were browsing around,and I saw this box that caught my eye. It was a Noah's Ark snow globe! The nursery is decorated in a Noah's Ark theme,and I always keep my eye out for thrifty finds,but I had yet to find anything. When I picked up that snow globe,I just felt like it was God giving me peace and assurance that He was NOT done yet.
Then,one day last week I was looking around on the Easter European country website for adoption (clear?). Basically,the country we hope to adopt from has its own website that lists children for adoption. So,I was browsing around on the website and found this adorable little guy that I felt a connection to. I didn't think much of it,but e-mailed a friend from RR to see if we could get him listed on the site. So,the next day when I got home from running errands, my friend messaged to tell me that the little boy I was looking at was....Pacey. :) I was floored. As you can see from above,his baby picture is hard to see. These pictures were much better and detailed. I couldn't believe it was him. SO,yeah....
Erik and I took some time to pray about it,and we are just going forward in faith. We know this process is sometimes unpredictable,and we can't promise how it will all turn out,but we are just going to take one step at a time.
Thank you for being patient with us while we worked through this. Please continue to pray for us,and if you are willing to help us financially,we would really appreciate it!
