Is no news really good news?

STILL nothing on the adoption front. I meant to call our agency today to see if there has been any news but I completely forgot in lieu of calling lenders, Realtors and the such. It seems as if this adoption is 'on hold'. I guess its maybe a good thing because we're going to have to use our money in savings that was intended for our adoption on a down payment on a home. At first I was so against this but now I've come to realize it is the way its gotta be. I know God will provide the funds for our adoption whenever it progresses...if it does. I know it will, sometimes it just seems like its not really even happening. Like, 'Are we really adopting?' And when people ask how the adoption is going I hate answering that nothing has changed since the last time they asked- a month ago! That is frustrating to no end, but God knows. I need to keep reminding myself that it is HIS time, not mine. Like that song:

In His time, in His time
He makes all things beautiful in His time
Lord, please show me every day as You're teaching me Your way
that You do just what You say in Your time
In Your time, in Your time
You make all things beautiful in Your time
Lord, my life to You I bring may each song I have to sing
be to You a lovely thing in Your time.

Love you!

It kind of was the same way with my friends who adopted from Ethiopia. Just no news for a while. On the bright side once they got the referral, everything seemed to move really fast. Hopefully its no different for you:-)

"In His time" is something that is SO hard to remember.

Hi! Our Liberian adoption took about a year and a half from when we started. We were originally told it would be about 4-6 months. The waiting was incredibly hard, but our 3 children have now been home for 8.5 weeks. Feel free to email me at

Love, Dawn
