We now have yet another home study under our belt. We survived yet another set of interviews where we very honestly shared our hearts and our dreams, our strengths and weaknesses, our successes and failures, and now our commitment to walk through this all again for the love we have for a fourteen year old boy that we met four years ago and his older brother, who very unexpectedly captured our hearts, as well. We still have to wait on the final report to be written, but we feel good about how it all went and are at peace with whatever happens now. It's all in God's hands, and He's always had a plan. Let's just wait and see how it all plays out from here.
Once our home study report is completed and the final fees are paid, we are completely out of funds from here on out. We will reapply for the Matching Grant we received the first time around as soon as we have that approved home study in our hands, so hopefully that gift that so many friends and family contributed toward our adoption pursuit three years ago will come back to us now to help us through. All I know is that we've been in this exact situation once before, and if I remember right, God totally came through. I trust He will again.

Our adoption journey has been filled with a lot of hurt and loss, along with even more hope, grace, and healing. Through it we have experienced more of God than we ever bargained for and have watched Him miraculously redeem our story when we surrendered all the broken pieces to Him.
