Drumroll...

Finally was able to speak in person to the one at my adoption agency who is in charge of the country I am finally transferring to.

(Loved her and had a great conversation!)

I also got the go ahead to be able to share where it is we will now (hopefully, prayerfully, at some point) be adopting from...

Haiti


Such a beautiful country

But in so much turmoil and having so much need


I am once again paper chasing
gathering documents
redoing medicals
and getting our dossier ready to be sent


All so that we can finally know WHO will be joining our family

And although Haiti is a VERY long process (we're looking at a good two years before a little one comes HOME)
I'm excited God has put us on the road HE chose
And I know the outcome will be nothing short of miraculous


For I know the plans I have for you," says the LORD. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

Congrats!

For me, Haiti is one of those places that sunk deep in to my skin and won't let go. I love it. I've been a handful of times and would go again in an instant if I could.

Sad happy that your adoption is moving along again. Can't wait until you find your little girl! I would love to adopt from there too but I think we have too many kids already. Hope this process goes quick and smooth!

That's wonderful. I say a prayer for the people of Haiti every night. Prayers headed your way, too.

Heidi said...

Congratulations! The process from Haiti will probably include twists and turns - but of course it will all be worth it once you have your sweet daughter home. You're another step closer!

LauraBeth said...

My prayers continue for you and your family...ALL of your family... as you continue on this journey to bring your daughter home.

That is so exciting. I guess this wait has helped you practice the patience you will need to get your daughter home. I am very happy for your family and can't wait to see how it goes!

About Me

I am a single mom to four amazing kids; each of whom just happen to have been adopted. The first three were adopted through foster care, and we just completed an international adoption from Haiti. Our family has grown through adoption and I am all the more blessed to know each of my children. I worship a mighty God, teach Special Ed, love bargains, and am inspired by Pinterest... come along with us for the ride!

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website: http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/resources

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
