Adoption #2 Update

Just a quick update on adoption #2. In simple terms, there are no new developments. I do feel that I have done all that I can do on my end. If God sees us fit for another adoption, then He will make it so.

Steps we have taken:
1) Completed all DHS requirements. We hear from our worker occasionally but there seem to not be very many african american boys in our age range in our state. We even increased our age range but still nothing yet.

2) Sent our homestudy to 50 states either via email or mail. I have heard back from several states and have been told "your homestudy has been sent to the correct person." So we will see if we get any calls from that.

3) Sent letters out to certain individuals who may come in contact with women who are looking for adoptive parents.

4) Researched international adoption again (Uganda). The time in-country is 6-8 weeks which seems like a long time at this point. We were in Rwanda/Ethiopia for 3 weeks...

So I feel at peace and content with what I have done. I do feel that we are supposed to adopt again so I will leave that up to God to show me when.... for now I will enjoy the sweet 3 souls that God has blessed me with. Lots of fun things are planned for the summer!

Ashley, I think you are in the right place. You are open and listening. God will reveal His plan. And we all know His timing is perfect. Thanks for sharing. We are in DC and I am glad to get to read this before heading out to the land of slow internet connections! Please keep us posted. Would love for you to cut and paste blogs and email us if you want to. We want to know what is going on. Love, Erin
