Big decisions

God is calling us to a few big decisions and one of them might be to switch the adoption agency that we are using.  We were told of a different agency who is much more friendlier to our situation (already having 3 children in the home)  and their wait time is SIGNIFICANTLY less, they will let us adopt out of birth order and would let us adopt two children whether they were siblings or not.  (of course they would become siblings once they were apart of our family.)

So  Carl and I are taking this Thanksgiving weekend to pray over this new situation,  please join with us so we make the best decision for our family and that we would glorify God with the decision.  

Also pray that we would be able to work with our health insurance.  I am totally amazed at how uncooperative they can be with an adoption.  When you are self-employed, you fall into a totally different category which doesn't carry the same standards as everyone else, so thus an insurance company can just say, "No" because they, the children,  are older than 90 days old.  And there is not much I can do about it.  But with God on my side anything is possible and I am going to stand firm on that truth!

Now this is only one decision that is on our plate right now, the other I can't share publicly but it is heavy on my heart.  I am trusting in God's ultimate wisdom and grace.

I am in the thick of packing for the ranch tomorrow!  I hope I don't forget anything too important...it is 50 plus miles to town!  Now talk about crazy living!  I can't wait to post pictures from our adventures!
