"I say this because I know what I am planning for you," says the Lord. "I have good plans for you, not plans to hurt you. I will give you hope and a good future." Jeremiah 29:11
We are waiting for God to show us the way on a couple huge things in our life:
The first being Simon's job. Yes, he is still working for the "new" bank but we do not know how long that will last. It could be a week or six months until they get all of the loans sold off. He is considering a career change but will need to return to school for about 4 months. We were hoping he would be on unemployment while he was doing the school, but the school starts in July and he in now thinking he will still be at the bank. The school only starts two times a year.
The second, of which is the reason for this blog, our adoption. Our baby "T" did not go to court as planned a few weeks ago and we were told the wait could be VERY long. We have been presented with another referral but it has come in pieces (first a picture, then on Friday the medical) and we still don't have it all to make the decision to accept. After much prayer, we feel God it leading us to stay with baby "T" while considering the new referral. If things move forward with both little boys, we will have two babies who are about two months apart! We were pretty sure we would adopt another after baby "T" but it would have been a couple of years. It looks like God has a different timeline for us bringing two little boys home from Ethiopia.
We know God has a plan for our family...but boy is it hard waiting for him to reveal it!!
