Good news all the way around. We leave in about 6 hours to head to Missouri to see our son. can't wait to get my hands on him. And we were accepted into the Philippine adoption program with what I am hoping is a great adoption agency. We still are a very long way out in the process. It is part of the Hague country programs so nothing will happen fast. In fact I am not expecting our dossier in until September. I would love to have it in in July but not seeing that....
On another note....hello katie thanks for telling your Mom who called Aunt Vicky who called me...hmmm did not even give a thought to anyone still reading this here blog and you happen to find what I wrote and now ....I have some splainin to do. But it will wait till later.

Where we are at

We have sent in our application to adopt from the Philippines. They say it can take up to 2 weeks before we know if we are in the program. I will try not to let it control my thoughts for the next couple of weeks. We actually have some good things happening. we leave in a week to go to our son Aarons' graduation from boot camp. I can't wait to see him it will be 12 seeks since he left. We will see him for 2 days and then he flies to California for 65 weeks of specialized training. We are hoping in that time we will be able to go see him and that he will be home for Christmas. I miss him some thing fierce. I have not done well with the whole leaving the nest thing. I know they are supposed to leave and encourage them to be independent but I sure miss them. Matt actually looked into switching to a college 7 hours away from here. I was ready to let him go but Praise God he has decided to stay where he is which is an hour away. So breathing asigh of relief here.
Praying everyone has a blessed day!

Setbacks Already?

Well we have already had a few days of worry, oops I mean trusting in God. God has been working on my heart and really seeing whom I am believing. I have spent this week claiming this verse....."because I know whom I have believed and am convinced, fully persuaded,having no doubt that HE is able to keep what I have entrusted, committed, given to HIM until that day."I have added a few more words to really enforce it for me. God's word is ever faithful and timely and truthful. This truth is found in 2 Timothy 1:12

That being said we are moving forward, maybe not as fast as I would like but forward none the less. In fact God has already given us a name, Joy, so it will either be Joy or a name that means joy.

Well in case you noticed, I deleted all my previous posts. Except a few. We have decided in this day and age that having too much personal information "out there" was not wise so we have cleared out most of them . Quite honestly it's not like I put too much personal stuff up anyway but my husband felt I needed to be even more private. So I will post what's happening and then hide them after awhile, always leaving up the word that so encourages me.
That being said we do have some exciting news we are going to start an adoption from the Philippines. To say that I am excited would be an understatement. I have been praying for a year and a half for Dan to feel the call again. Just when I was going to give up he starts telling me how God has moved on his heart and he knows' it's time. God is so good!!! We have not started any paperwork yet but we do have an agency and I have been researching adoption from there for a few months. we are so excited about this new adventure. Stop back in and check out what God is doing.
