Thankfully, despite all of my anxiety and frustration, God is still there and still in control. The good news is that we've been re-awarded the grant that we'd gotten nearly four years ago and were not able to use. This was a matching grant that a lot of our friends and family generously donated to, so it is reassuring to know that God always had plans for those funds.
- I am a wife, daughter, mother, bilingual teacher, poet, author, women's Bible study teacher, world traveler, orphan advocate, and an adoptive mother. 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.

Pressure's back on
It looks like that smooth ride to the finish line of this crazy adoption attempt isn't going to happen after all. I guess I spoke too soon. The pressure is definitely on as these last two documents are taking way too long and we're facing more deadlines. I'm frustrated, discouraged, anxious, and just absolutely exhausted. It's complicated and too hard to explain, so I'm not even going to try. I wouldn't wish what we've gone through in this adoption process on anyone. All I can say is this......I AM SO TIRED.
