Basically, out of the clear blue yonder, our agency called us with a direct referral. Of an ADORABLE
Unfortunately, Justin and I know how excruciating it is to have to turn down a file. We have poured over this one and are feeling very confident about it. (Did I mention she is SOOO cute?!) I will submit the medical files to our IAC (International Adoption Clinic) today for second and maybe even third opinions.
I know some people would prefer not to announce that they have only been given a referral. (I know some people end up having to turn down three and four files before finding their son or daughter.) :( Me? I’d like everyone to know so that we can be covered in as much prayer as possible in order to make the decision God wants us to make. Whatever decision we make, we want it to be God’s will for her life and ours. And as much as it makes me cringe to even write this, my biggest prayer is that we say “No” if that is what God is leading us to say.
I’m also praying for understanding of her medical issues. I am a first grade teacher. Chicken Pox is over my head…. Please pray that our doctors/pediatricians are knowledgeable of her medical needs and that they can explain them to us in ways we can understand and grasp them. It is scary relying on someone else’s understanding.
Ok? Got all that? Above all, please pray for God’s will in both her life and ours. I can’t wait to give a follow up. Happy Friday!!!
Did I mention she is ADORABLE?!
