Ups and Downs

Sorry that it has been awhile since the last posting. We have been so busy with stuff. Well, we have very quickly learned the ups and downs of the adoption process, almost coming right out of the gates. We have had two possibilities that have come up and then taken away since my last post. I still wonder sometimes why God brings these up only to take them away, but I am learning to accept them as part of the process and trusting that He has a child (or children) out there for us.
One thing that has come from all of this is that we did go to our local Department of Family and Children Services (DFCS) and talked to them. We have since gone to orientation and will begin training for the possibilty of adoption or foster-to-adopt through them. We can have our training and home study through them and if we then decide to go through and agency we can and will will have all of our stuff ready.
So, we continue to ask for your prayers as we go through this. Pray that we will be trusting in what God is doing, even in the down times and that we will always seek His guidance. Also, pray for that little one that will someday be ours!
