The Call Came... and we wait...

Today I got the call that our family and one other family have been selected for this sweet little baby girl.   So next Wednesday the placement team will meet with both families and then make their final decision on who they feel will be the best fit.  The Lord continues to open the door for us with this lil' one, so we will continue to walk through.  Sweet "M" was created by our Savior and we trust and pray for His perfect plan for her.   Again, thank you for all your prayers as we wait to see what the Lord does...

We received an email just a little bit ago that the decision has not been made yet as their are lots of profiles to review... so we wait... and most likely we will not know anything more today.  This journey will continue to teach me to trust in the Lord and to wait on His timing.  That is definitely alot easier to say then do.  We appreciate everyone's prayers and sweet words.

"For He Himself is our peace" Ephesians 2:14

I finished a journal a couple weeks ago and before I closed it I thought it would be fun to go back and read my first entry.

It was dated February 22, 2006 and I had just found out I was pregnant with my 3rd baby.
Here is a line that I had written...
Lord Jesus thank you for my sweet boys and the new lil' blessing in my tummy.  I pray I will carry this precious gift full-term and he/she would be healthy.  Lord may I trust your plan and have a prepared heart for what my lil' blessing is.   I have a desire for a sweet baby girl someday.
Tomorrow my precious Eiler, who I wouldn't trade for anything in the world :), turns 4!

My Final Entry dated September 14, 2010
Lord I continue to give our adoption journey over to you.  "If we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance." Romans 8:25 Lord we do eagerly wait...
My journal began with a desire for a little girl and over 4 years later we are waiting for our sweet girl!

I received an email today that the placement meeting for the 4 month old little girl is tomorrow.

Our Sweet Little Girl's Room...

A Social Worker's glimpse of our family

This is our photo book that social worker's receive when our profile is submitted.

The journey...

Seven years ago, Joel and I realized that God had laid on both of our hearts to pursue adoption.  We contacted the agency Family Connections and the process began.  After a couple months of classes, paper work and prayer , He made it very clear that the timing wasn’t right.  Over the next several years the desire to adopt continued.  In August of 2009, God called us to start the adoption process again and we felt led to pursue this journey with Koinonia Adoption Services.  This time God continued us through all the paper work and classes and on August 11, 2010 we officially became an adoption certified family.  As I reflect on the past year I am in awh of all the love and support from our family and friends.  Here is just one example: In June we had a Yard Sale of all donated items to help off set some of the adoption expenses for our future daughter. When it was all over we were blown away!  We raised enough money to cover all our expenses as well as completely furnish and decorate her future bedroom. Thank you to everyone who was apart of that amazing weekend!  Though the tedious part of the journey has been completed the hardest part began.. waiting for our little girl!  
On August 12 (just one day after being certified) we received our first phone call.  We were asked to consider two children, a 2 year old boy and a 1 year old girl.  They were part of a sibling set of 4 that they were struggling to find placement for, so they were going to place them 2 and 2.  We said yes and our profile was submitted, but two days later we received a call back that they had found a family to take all 4.  What a blessing for those sweet kiddos... and so our wait began again.  
On September 23 (last Thursday) we received a second call.  This time for a 4 month old little girl and we said yes.  Our profile was submitted, but the placement meeting for this little girl is not till next week.  
So this is currently where we are in our journey... Is this the sweet little one God has created to be in our family?  So as we wait to hear next week, we will pray, pray, pray that the Lord's will be done.
