Well we did have our homestudy reviewed. Drum roll please...I know what you are thinking"they have 4 biological kids, they have adopted twice, they have sent in all the post adoption reports , we are US citizens, the government works for us, surely they will be approved... No problems here...
The USCIS has requested proof of evidence that our beach (vacation) home is sufficient for children. Really wow! We will need to have a homestudy update ($) and more wasted (in my humble opinion) time. This will delay our process a few weeks. I have spoken to our social worker, and adoption agency and they have never heard of such a thing.
I am following someones blog that is actually traveling to China to bring home her TWO sons from China. The incredible obstacles that popped up literally the days prior to their travel was incredible. Even as I type this there is a problem with their last flight and they are switching planes! But in all the drama , gods provisions are so evident. I am sure she did not want all the stress in the past few days but had she not and had she not share her needs, then she and everyone would not have seen the glory and power of our God so clearly! I just love it.
So no I would not say I enjoy all the bumps in the journey but would I have seen the glory of God if I thought could do it all myself??
So if you are reading this I pray that I can glorify God in my posts and still share the ups and downs of the adoption process. All I have to do is look at my sweet girls face staring at me. I hope I encourage you to take chances and follow where God is leading you.
