The Plan?

God is in it.  I know He is.  He has not filled me in on all of the details, however.  But, you know what?  He doesn't have to.  My job is to be obedient. 

We have been pursuing the adoption of a sibling group (not one in particular) for a year now.  We received our home study one week ago today.  Presently, our lease is till the end of June.  Alan and I are trying to decide how long we should try to extend it.  Maybe the end of September?  Or December?  Or are we just trying to give God more time that He doesn't need because He knows how this is all going to play out.  He knows that Cheney is coming home to NJ for his last summer as a single college student and that this Momma's heart can't miss all of that.  God also knew that NJ was going to say that no part of our home study will transfer.  Not even our classes.  We will have to be in NJ to start the process all over again if we leave here without adopting.  We have felt very strongly this is what we were to be doing.  In the end, nothing else is important except that we obey.  I believe we are doing that. 

Praying that God will continue to guide us in these murky and yet exciting waters.

Hmmm...now it will be exciting to see how this all plays out! Faith is a mystery, isn't it? Yes, you are only required to be obedient and leave the rest to Him. :)

I hope the answers come quick. Here is an amazing family willing to open their home-- I can't wait to see how everything unfolds. Blessings Heather and hang in there. The waiting is so hard. :)

I love you, Heather. Somehow God has all this worked out already. He knows just what the plan is and even though not knowing can make us feel crazy, He is there all the time calming and reassuring us. Can you feel His hand on your back?
