Just When Things Become Predictable…

So, this was supposed to be a season of no more surprises. Of relative stability…knowing what to expect out of life. We have a travel date for Uganda, we have a court date, we’re getting on with what we’ve been waiting for for over a year. We’re preparing for travel, preparing for the big change of adding a child to our family. God always has such different plans than I do….

Last weekend I posted this picture on Instagram saying we were ready for our daughter to come home.



Well, now it seems my car will look a little more like this


There’s a long back story here. But basically, we are now anticipating bringing home two girls instead of one in January. We are awaiting a second referral for a little girl we’ve known about and prayed for for 2 years. We had no clue she would show up at the baby home we’re adopting from several weeks ago. Over the past week Corey and I have prayed really hard about what God wants us to do in this situation. We feel certain that we are being led to adopt this little girl. So in January when we get home, we’ll most likely be a family of four rather than three :).

We’re excited and nervous and scared. There’s a lot that needs to happen in order for this to be successful, so please pray that things move quickly and this second adoption can be completed while we’re in Uganda. I’ll be back with more later, so stay tuned!
