It’s been a while since I updated my blog. I’ve been so focused on things that need to be done around our house and here on the porch before we adopt that I’ve not been around here.
An update on our adoption- I did finally get the application completed. The day we mailed it, I had to get several pictures of us and the house processed for inclusion in what DH refers to as the first hurdle. It was after they were processed that caused us some great pause and anxiety. I had several processed so we could pick them out. What do we want to portray in these pictures? What’s the purpose of these pictures? Who will see them? What would someone looking at them without knowing us think about them? We spent some time at lunch picking them out and finally made some decisions.
Then, it was time to mail our application. DH was closest to the mail slot at the post office and I made sure he took a moment to relish the moment. As I put it, “there goes my life” thinking that I hope my life as I know it changes in the near future. . I’m so ready for this next chapter.
So we mailed our application on March 15, 2006. We know the application was received but have not heard anything further to date. I pray that God will grant me patience as I wait to hear whether we’ve passed the first hurdle.
