adoption situations...possibilities

Ok, so here's the situation. We have had two possible adoption situations this week, and they are still up in the air, so no decisions have been made yet.

Situation 1: One of the adoption referral networks that I belong to had a situation for a baby due in May that was in the range of fees we could afford, so I asked a couple of questions and we decided to have our profile submitted. We do not know the gender of the baby. The birth mother is looking at profiles on Friday, but we don't know when she will make the decision.

Situation 2: The children's pastor at our church, Sherri, has a mom who is a foster parent and is connected with other foster parents. One of the other mom's she is in contact with is fostering an 8 month old baby girl in a bad situation. The courts are considering terminating the parental rights. We said we were very interested, but this could be a long process.

So, prayers would be appreciated and we would love to have another match. One that leads to a baby in our arms and house!

TCIE, I know you are praying for us, keep it up! (and thank you!)

How did I miss this post? We were contacted this week about a birthmom who is 4 months pregnant. She'll be looking at our profile along with several others in the next few weeks or months. I will be praying for you in these situations my dear and for the birthmothers as they make these decisions.
