Is it time??

Remember a few posts ago I shared that we are hoping to adopt a child or children? Well, I received a call yesterday that we have been "matched" with a child. He is 5 1/2 and has been in foster care since he was 3 and, from what we have been told, a sweet little guy. There are also several other families that are also being considered so on Friday there is a meeting where all the agencies with families will meet together and basically "sell" their family to find the right home for the kiddo.

We are really excited since it feels like we have been waiting for so long but this is definitely not what we were expecting. We had originally said we could take a sibling group of 3 with at least one girl - we so want a girl - and we just aren't sure if this is the right thing for us. We are praying about it and are getting mixed feelings...sometimes it's so hard to decipher our feelings and what we are being told to do.

So, please pray for us right now, we could use all the prayers we get right now! Please pray that the right decision will be made for this little boy and for us. Whether that means he is placed with us or not he needs a good home! Thanks everyone! We will know by Friday and I'll post the outcome!

We will definitely increase our prayers for you - you and all of our children and their spouses and children are always in our prayers. I am thankful that you have the faith to know how to approach this monumental decision. It is huge for everybody who loves you. I can hardly wait to hear the outcome.
