Yesterday we received a phone call that we thought would never happen.
At least not at this point in the process.
Another family, somewhere, is also desiring to adopt the little girl we have already called our own.
I think I was in shock yesterday as I sat and listened to our agency tell us about the email they had just received.
Today, as I look at the things we couldn't fit into her care package that we just mailed on Wednesday, I cry.
Our agency has no information other than what I just shared.
They will be traveling to Thailand next Friday and meet with the DSDW Board and all of the social workers in Thailand as they hand deliver our dossier.
Our dossier that requests to adopt this little one.
Our agency is hoping that they will find out more information.
We are praying that we are farther along in the process and that it will be considered, if we are.
We know ultimately that this is all in the Lord's hands.
Until we find out for sure about our little girl ~
We won't know where we go from here.
I asked God to give me a fresh new Word this morning.
So I've waited.
And He spoke.
"Pray for the other family."
So I pray.
Not really sure what I'm to pray for~
Other than for the Lord to comfort them if they've been told the same information from their agency.
Praying for peace for their hearts, as well.
Today as I read my devotional, Jesus Calling, it was EXACTLY the fresh new word that I needed to hear from my God and my Savior.
His Word reminding me that He is ALWAYS with me! And that He is holding me by my right hand. Guiding me with his counsel and taking me into his glory afterward. And although my flesh and my heart may fail, God will always be the strength of my heart and my portion forever. (Psalm 73:23-26)
The first scripture after the devotional that took my breath away?
"The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing." Zephaniah 3:17
Our sweet little girls' life verse!
