"My friends, adoption is redemption. It's costly, exhausting, expensive, and outrageous. Buying back lives costs so much. When God set out to redeem us, it killed Him." --Derek Loux

We got a phone call from our adoption coordinator early last week. She said that they currently have 20 children available for adoption that are almost paperwork ready. Chances are that we'll be matched in at least 4-6 weeks once their paperwork is processed. We are probably still 11th on the waiting list-- so unless everyone ahead of us adopts a sibling group, then we'll lay eyes on our beloved boy fairly soon. The waiting is hard, but will all be worth it for that precious, holy moment!
This is what we'll feel like when we get the call we've been waiting for.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will make straight your paths. --Proverbs 3:5-6
