Lack of news

We still have no news of an upcoming Skype call. I am trying SO hard not to stress about it! Our girl agreed to a call but we don't have one scheduled yet. The social worker is supposed to visit her at the end of the month to see what she thinks about adoption. That visit may or may not end our adoption process, depending on how it goes.

I really, really, really hope that we will be able to Skype with her before any decisions are made. We have been begging for that call but have not heard anything yet.

The last few weeks have been a time of learning to lean on God. I know I am probably still failing miserably in my attempts to keep my faith high but I am trying. I am praying daily that God will help me to have faith in Him. "Lord, help my unbelief!" I am also praying that He melts my girl's heart so that she will want a family. We have so much love to give her, if only she knew!

Praying for your heart's desire! Also praying that your dear girl's heart is able to understand what you want to give her.

This has got to be killing you, and I'm sorry for it. I hope and pray that God will work things out for you and for her.

Bless you! I know the waiting has to be tough.
I pray she'll come around.

Our first placement didn't work out for us and just a week later, we had two children, because of some circumstances they were placed with us in only a month after meeting them. That was 14 years ago and we have been blessed. Trust in God.

Maurita - Thank you for that encouragement! We are definitely learning to trust in Him!
