I know, I know. We promised an update on the land in which we will get our baby. The problem is we have two options currently. Option one, which is really more of a "friend of a friend, told a friend" option is a girl in Louisiana who is pregnant and might give her baby up for adoption. We really have no other details than that, so it doesn't really look that promising. We do know she is pregnant with a little girl.
The next option, which is the one that we are doing all of the homestudy stuff for, is the international adoption that we are going for. We are going through a company called Journeys of the Heart (www.journeysoftheheart.net). Below is a picture of a baby boy who is the nationality of the country we will be adopting from. See if you can guess?
Have you figured it out yet?
Okay, so you might have guessed China, you wouldn't be completely wrong. You have to think critically though. This is a little BOY, and we all know adopting a Chinese boy is close to impossible. So how do you adopt a Chinese looking boy? You go to.... ARE YOU READY....
That's right, we're pursuing adoption in Taiwan. Isn't he the cutest little boy? What can you do?
1. Pray! Pray for the girl in Louisiana and pray for the birthmom in Taiwan who is probably 4-5 months pregnant right now. (Pray for the baby as well. If we have a boy, his name will be Reed (by the way, if we adopt from Taiwan, it will be a boy). If we have a girl, her name will be Ava. You can pray specifically for our baby by name.
2. Pray for Abbey and me to be able to finish all of our paperwork for our homestudy before our social worker leaves for Kosovo for three weeks to adopt her child.
3. Pray that God will give Abbey and I peace as we travel down this journey and that we will continue to trust God for His will to be done in our lives.
