Our papers were mailed to Omaha (as our social worker told us) and we found out they should have been mailed to Des Moines SO - Omaha says they forwarded them on to Des Moines. Des Moines does not have them - Omaha has no idea when they were mailed - - - you get the picture. So - our almost $800 check is lost in the gov't system somewhere and our papers (and if you've adopted you know the paperwork involved!!) are also lost. We also have our homestudy lost as well - as Des Moines has not received that either. I emailed today to Des Moines to ask if we should re-send everything or keep waiting - meanwhile time is ticking by and we had hoped to have everything to China by AUGUST!!!! (Yes, that was a month ago!!)
Deep Breath - God is totally in control - I AM NOT!! He has a reason and I need to accept that. It just wasn't the plan - it's a lot of work lost - and I'm frustrated, bummed - you name it. But, I will keep my head up - I have four great children here at home with me - I am plenty busy :) - God's timing is perfect! We also firmly believe He called us to do this again so He has a big plan that we just need to fall in line with that plan.
All of this - to ask for you to pray - God could work a big miracle tonight and those papers could show up on the gal's desk tomorrow! God used our last adoption to show me how BIG He really is - I mean that - He moved MOUNTAINS for us! I know He will do it again - and I will be right here to share that with all of you!! We have a big God and he loves our little one in China (she's probably not even born yet) and He has His hand on this whole situation. Thanks for praying with us! Now we'll just sit back and watch Him work!!
