What Now





I saw the face of Jesus
In a little orphan girl
She was standing in the corner
On the other side of the world
And I heard the voice of Jesus
Gently whisper to my heart
Didn't you say you wanted to find Me?
Well, here I am
Here you are


So what now?
What will you do now that you found Me?
What now?
What will you do with this treasure you've found?
I know I may not look like what you expected
But if you'll remember
This is right where I said I would be
You've found me
What now?

Eric Ludy - Depraved Indifference

super, super, duper, duper quick update

We found out on July 11 that our court date was June 21.  Everything went well!  We're Skyping with our munchkin Thursday night, July 26. :)  We should be headed to Taiwan very soon!

See?  Super, super, duper, duper quick update.

Yep, we're normal...

or so we've been told.  I finally caved and asked our caseworker from our placing agency.  Okay, okay that's kind of what the homestudy is for, right?  I'm trying so hard to be patient.  Our case has been worked on in the courts for at least 4 1/2 weeks that we know of.  They had a few questions for us 4 1/2 weeks ago (this is how I know they've been working on it that long----genius, huh?) and the wait since then has dragged and dragged.  I've been given the disadvantage of having friends (I love you, AB, though!!!) who adopted a little girl with Down Syndrome from the exact same orphanage and they were almost identical to us in their paperwork timeline.  Well, this time 3 years ago, they'd gotten their call.  They knew the day they would hold their little munchkin.  So I asked our caseworker if we were normal in our process.  We are and so we wait.... patiently.  Okay, I'm completely pretending to be patient.

By the way, $7000 left to complete our adoption fees.  I know God's got it, but I'm a little stressed.  Lots and lots of prayer.
