Lately friends have been asking about any adoption updates. Next month will mark two years since we officially began the process. In fact, this blog was created specifically to inform our curious family and friends of our adoption journey, as narrated here. Though our reasons for adopting did not include a suspicion that we could not biologically conceive, we would have never guessed that God would have intervened with not one, but two, biological children.
Our agency has informed us of a new policy that they have recently begun, whereby they essentially pause the process for parents who are expecting a biological child. They want to allow time for the parents to adequately bond with their biological child after the child is born, and once that occurs, we have been told that the adoption process will resume with us at the top of the list to receive a referral.
How comforted I am by Psalm 37:5, where God commands,"Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act." Our ways are not God's ways, thankfully. We still remain committed to bringing home children from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and we look forward to seeing how God "acts" as we commit this adoption process to Him!
