Rough news

Yesterday morning we found out that Little Miss's paperwork was not going to come directly to us. Instead it was going to be put up on the Multiple Agency Special Needs waiting child list. This means that our agency will have to keep their eyes open for her posting, and that another agency and another set of parents might find her first. We are rushing to put together a packet of information so that CHI will have it and be able to claim her as ours.
We need some 'Thy will' prayer about this. We truly believe that God has lead us to her, and now we have to trust that God will keep her for us. Conversely, if another family finds her, we have to trust that we were the instrument of His will, that she is with her forever family due to the fact that we asked for her paperwork. We also would have to trust that God will lead us to the right child at the right time, just like he did with Acer.
So, we had our moments of fuss and dismay, and now we have to get to work with that paperwork.

We're thinking of you guys and keeping our fingers crossed for it to all work out as it should be (and that includes you as her family!)

Happy Easter and we hope for even happier news in the soon future

Oh Heather, I am so sorry you are going through this. I love your faith though and you just hold tight to it. Thy Will be done!! It will all bejust fine no matter what, do not be afraid.

I stuck a shot of B's current long board with his little cousin riding on his tummy in the Fun Rrelatives post for you and Acer. Tell him B would ride him around too if he lived closer. I know you must be sick of snow but the whole bay area lines up to get to Tahoe to ski or just play in it!!

I am praying very hard for you!! And
Happy Easter!
