Lori over at View From Our Front Porch Swing awarded me the Thoughtful Blogger Award a few weeks ago. I was so touched by what she said.
Julie is so full of energy it makes me tired! She passionately loves God, her family and life in general. Her family is top priority always. She has a great love of children, and her family may soon be adopting. Such a giving, selfless heart. I am truly honored to be able to give you this award Julie, you deserve it!
I felt so excited when she said I had lots of energy. I have been feeling so tired lately with just all the normal things going on around here it made me feel refreshed just hearing Lori say I had energy. I guess you could say it worked kind of like a placebo....or a giant energy drink.
Seriously though, I was very touched by Lori's kind words. She is truly an inspiration to me and if she hadn't already given the award to me I surly would have passed it along to her.
In Other news.
I know I haven't talked about our adoption plans since my original post. To be honest things have been a little frustrating and slow moving. I don't know why I am surprised. Everyone warns you that the paper pregnancy is long and frustrating at times.
But as you all know, I am NOT A PATIENT PERSON.
It seems there are rumblings and rumors flying rampant that Russia will soon be changing some of there adoption laws. Something they like to do often. We were warned that sometimes this region can be unstable and that is why some agencies chose not to do adoptions with there government.
Many things have been happening. To many to tell you all about. However, we have felt some leadings to perhaps move our adoption journey to another country. We are prayerfully considering this right now. Please be in prayer for our family that we make the right decision.
I know God has a special child all picked out for us. Of that I have no doubts.
I want HIS will to be done. Not my own.
When I began praying this prayer funny things started happening to Dave and I. We started considering options we never would have before and finding out we were both heading in the same direction.
I am so excited. I know great things are coming our way.
Thanks to all of you for taking this journey with us and for all your kind words and support over the last few weeks. I can never tell you how much I truly appreciate them.
