We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand. ~Isaiah 64:8

June 25th - Update

Well, we are still waiting. Why do I think this might be the first line of many, many posts in the future? :)

Maybe I should try to switch it up a bit:


remain
hang around
linger
kill time
hang on
hold my horses
delay
loiter
twiddle my thumbs
idle away the hours
loaf
stagnate
and - PERSEVERE.
You'd be surprised how hard that last one is -especially in this adoption process when most of the control is entirely out of your hands. Entirely.
So, the update... Erik's fingerprints were re-printed Friday, June 20th and mailed those to Maryland on Tuesday, June 24th. The new set had some slight smears on it, but we had no choice but to send them anyway. PRAY they'll be good enough. And we corrected the mistake with the Money Order and resent that to Virginia. Pray that will be processed quickly. We are still waiting on:

VA -Child Abuse Registry: resubmitted; waiting for processing
NC -Criminal History: still waiting
MD-Criminal History: Erik's resubmitted; waiting for processing and Child Abuse Registry: still waiting
Pray for our perseverance...and for the Lord's blessing on each of those outstanding pieces of our background checks to be speedily processed.

Am certainly praying. I know how hard that waiting for something you long for can be. And waiting for each of the tedious tasks along the way to be (always slowly) reviewed by other people and ticked off.

My thoughts are with you.

Thank you, Kate. I know that you, especially, understand about waiting and lack of control. :) I'm praying for you too!

Jane - Thank you for your encouragement. Knowing that it is God's perfect timing is reassuring. I can't wait to get her home and give her the mommylove she so needs!
