After much prayerful consideration we do not feel led to pursue the adoption of "R". He is completely adorable, but we do not believe we are his family. We have peace with this decision and thank God for that. There is another family that has expressed interest in him, so we believe he will not be without a family for long - praise the Lord!
I feel like God is telling me to "wait" at this time. I don't know for how long, but we have decided to just sit tight and continue to wait on His perfect timing. Again, we have peace with this decision which tells me it is the right thing.
Don't get me wrong, the waiting is not easy. I am not the type of person to just sit and wait for something to happen, but if that is what God wants me to do, so be it.
It does, however, kind of make me feel like I'm on the outside looking in. Like I'm in the adoption process, but not really. I know that's not true and it may seem silly to say, but it's how I feel. We have been so blessed by all of your kind words & prayers. I can't imagine going through this without any of you.
God is good...all the time!
