Tomorrow is the Day!

According to our FedEx tracking device, our dossier should arrive in Taipei, Taiwan, tomorrow, September 14! And according to our adoption agency, we could have up to a 24 month wait for a referral! That was not the number we heard originally when we began this journey, but God has a plan, I'm sure. The adoption process in Taiwan is similar to domestic adoption here in the U.S. in that if there is a birth family still involved with the child, they are involved in choosing the family to whom their child is given for adoption. Therefore, as I understand it, if there is a birth family who finds a family with four sons who live in small town USA, and enjoy fishing and traveling, attractive as a family for their daughter, we could find the wait to be much shorter than 24 months. As far as we are concerned, God is in control and He will guide the orphanage people in Taiwan who are helping to make that decision, and He will guide us when we are given a referral to know if the child referred to us will fit in our family. But we would appreciate your prayers as we wait! (And as we continue to raise the orphanage fee and travel funds!)

Waiting expectantly for Sophia...

I saw a pair of earings here at the feria that reminded me to pray for you guys. Since we have been anticipating an adoption ourselves, a while back, I purchased myself some earings of little girls. They are a reminder to me to be praying and even if I don't wear them everyday, I see them in my jewelry box and pray for our future children, your future Sophia, Alec & Ian, and others that I know that are adopting. God bless!!
