Every good and perfect gift is from above,
coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights,
who does not change like shifting shadows.

James 1:17

So I have no news in our adoption journey just yet. We believe all our letters of reference have been turned in and so we are waiting to conduct an interview (I think by phone). Then we will move on to lots of paperwork gathering for our homestudy. We have to attend a intro class in December. We'll have to get multiple official copies of all our birth certificates, we'll need to be fingerprinted and that sent to the FBI for clearance. There is an online class we'll have to take as well. So there will be lots to get done, but we have to first have this interview and be officially accepted.

I've been praying a great deal lately for our baby's birth mother. God has really placed this on my heart in the last week or so. It is possible that circumstances that lead this mother to give up her baby are unfolding. Maybe she has recently conceived our baby, or maybe she is already pregnant, or its possible our baby has been born. I don't know. But God does. For whatever reasons she must give up her baby I pray for her healing and peace and that she can feel God's loving arms around her. I can't even begin to imagine the circumstances that lead up to this and how hard that must be for her. So I will continue to pray.

IT's a crazy journey to take but so worth it! I'm excited to see how it unfolds your you guys. Were looking into adopting again as well. The love I have for Jonah's birthmom is incredible. Good luck sweetie!
