We are exactly 3 years paperwork pregnant! Ok, in all reality we are 4 years paperwork pregnant but our doessier and immigration was approved in December 2015. Apparently, they don’t count the months of running around Iowa and Tennessee gathering documents.
Soooooo how are we doing, you ask?
I’m not going to sugar coat this, friends. I think we’ve felt every emotion possible—over and over again for 1,111 days (again, technically more but who wants to be technical?!).
But guess what? The last 3 weeks, we got a glimpse of the “it’s going to be worth it” feeling. Unfortunately, I cannot give details but if you could be praying for us, we would so appreciate it! Just know this:
1. There has been movement. Really good movement. We are hoping for more information in January so pray patience over us through Christmas and New Years!
2. We have to keep details to ourselves for protection of all involved. Please don’t take it personally, it’s harder on us not to share!! 💜
3. No, the adoption process is not full of rainbows and pixie dust. But I want to tell you, every single document, frustration, mountain, and valley is worth the joy and excitement that comes with one simple step in the right direction. IT’S GOING TO BE WORTH IT!
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”
