This is the place where we are have documented the road we have walked in order to adopt our four children from Brazil and the road we are now on as a family. We are keenly aware that adopting is not just a process we've chosen to go through, but part of God's plan for us and for our children. May He be glorified through the process and through our family!

She wants more information... again

The judge made another request for more information. This time she wonders about our financial situation. So, we tallied up all of our monthly earnings (again) and checking and savings account totals (again) and explained to her how very careful we've been in the last several years to plan financially in preparation for becoming parents. We sent off our responses in the middle of the night and Luciana sent them to Lino first thing Thursday morning. Dayse, the psychologist, wanted to bring the translated answers to the judge right away.

Deep breath.

We're glad to know that she's working to make a decision, but weary of all these redundant questions. We imagine we're just a little closer to her response, though. We trust God for a "yes" but when we hear things like this from a good friend who has walked a parallel road from the El Salvador program to adopt two older children from Colombia, we can't help but feel that family's pain and dread.

Lord, Have your way.

Lawsy mercy. What a roller coaster.
