Last Blog Post until further notice...:(

Well dear bloggers this is going to be my last post being that we are on "pause"...who knows how long that will be?

I can blame it on finances, the housing market, my own house not selling, nervousness.. ......blah blah or I can just say we are not ready YET!!  So add all of those things up and you get to the point where we currently are - unable to pull the trigger, unable to make that leap, unable to take that first step...

Possible when we do sell our house, possible when our business gets better, possible if I land a new job...then we may start.  

I reflect on our timeline of last summer...last July 4th as being the day adoption came to us through an adorable little chinese girl.  The day that changed my life - shook my entire world...made me look at everything through different eyes.  If we had gone with our gut instincts we may have a referral already  - may be on our way to ET in a few months...may be closer to being parents.  

But we did not we chose to wait and so here we are 7 months closer to starting.

So for my last post I thank you for all of your positive comments and support and I hope that one day I am able to write that we have started the process.....until then.  God Bless!

Wow, I am not sure if I should be happy or sad for your friend...I have not posted yet, but we got out referral today...I will post about it tomorrow.
I hope you are doing okay. I am just hoping you are feeling good about your decision.
God Bless & Love

Hey Mindy. I enjoyed meeting you at Tracy's party on Friday night. I have loved reading your blog. I hope and pray that God will provide a way for you to get started with the adoption again soon. I hope that I will see you sometime at one of the ET fellowships.

Mindy, I really enjoyed meeting you at Tracy's the other night. We have so much in common and I pray for your house to sell! I SO understand the feeling! (2 years worth of knowing that feeling!) Prayers for your peace. Stay strong and have Faith. Always here if you need an ear.

And with a hug this is what I will say...

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
lean not on your own understanding,

but acknowledge Him in ALL your ways and

(a promise....if you do the above)...

He WILL direct your paths.
Proverbs 3:5-6

*have you seen the site...adoptuskids?? (through foster care...doesn't even need to be in your state...and virtually free) If you choose to do foster care...(to adopt...or just foster care)...the state pays for the homestudy, your only cost is at was $150 dollars for our Princess Sunshine...and free for the sibling group of 3.
