The Homestudy Update
Well, here I sit, in a very clean house, waiting for our brand new caseworker from our brand new international adoption agency to come begin our home study update. It should not take us long to complete the update, and their our information/homestudy will be sent to Illinois, so one woman can make the decision of whether are not we are qualified to be parents again. It seems so crazy, that I can give birth to as many children as I choose to. But....the state tells me how many I can adopt. But, that is Illinois! One of only 5 states in the country that has this regulation.
Our new caseworker is very good, and specializes in getting large families approved. She told us she would not even have taken our case if she was not confident she could get us through. So.....here we go!
We should have an answer in the next month. And in the meantime, Wen and Wu sleep alone every night, on a plywood mattress, with no pillow, toys, or even a blanket. Please Lord, let this go through. But in the case that this is not your will......Please provide those precious treasures with a family.....and soon! I know it breaks our Lords hearts to see these lil ones missing out on so much of their childhood. There are SO many children who wait. Wake up Christians! Answer the call! Fund those who are! Pray for those children who wait and wait, and have such great needs, that are not being met.
