"No one whose hope is in you will ever be put to shame..."

My mother-in-law sent me an incredible early birthday gift (my birthday is not until December). The title of the picture she sent is, "Stronger Than I Knew." The artist (Julie A Kirkland) painted it during one of the darkest points in her life and she says that it truly was an inspiration from God. It reminded me of where my strength comes from. She wrote this to me and sent it with the picture, "As I look at it I think of you and this past year and so much more- you are stronger than you know, but only with God." Of course it made me cry and I could just see God holding me with His mighty right hand. I uploaded the picture to share with you all- may it encourage your heart as well!

"According to my contact you should get a response in a few days. The good news is that the bureaucratic wheels are in motion. Please be patient, "a few days" is vague, and it could be a bit longer than we prefer."

Adam's brother was in town this weekend so the boys did a few projects together including putting together a crib and installing a dimmer on the light in the kids' room. I also included pictures of a few other things that remind us that good news could be just around the corner. We feel like friends and family alike are all holding their breath in anticipation- please oh please let the pictures come this week!!!

Talking with the nun this morning she said that they had already done the medical testing and identified the children for about 12 families including yours. She has not yet submitted all the required information to the ministry- she was to take them today, but Veronique is not in the office. She has made an appointment with Veronique for this coming Friday. So let's wait patiently to hear from Veronique later this week or early next week.
I have been waiting patiently and I will continue to wait because I have no other choice, but it is hard- we look forward with hesitant hope to next week...
