Please, can you spare a prayer

well we are done with our adoptive parenting classes and now our infant cpr class is completed(yes, we had to sit next to a very pregnant mom to be and father to be in our class and we DID survive!). Now comes the hard part of this chase in the adoption journey... the wait. We heard from our agency that there are no perspective birthmother situations and it looks like it might be until at least when school starts up in the fall before we might hear any good news of perspective birthmother situations. We also contacted the agency from another situation a few weeks back that we were not selected for and she told DH that she doesn't have any potential birthmothers with her agency right now either. Waaahhhhh. Now this is when I ask for your prayers to help DH and I through this wait. The wait that could take days, weeks, months, a year?! possibly. I get sad thinking a years time could happen. Heck they quote 18 months on average for a match to happen with these 2 agencies and it seems to be the norm right now with any agency. Ok. just simply asking for a prayer or good thoughts to help remind me to stay calm and remember that the right situation is out there for us to come along at the right time. I am hopeful that we will have a match one day, but I fear the wait time. If you waited a while, come post to me and tell me how you managed to hang tough in the wait time.

Ok.. off to bed to hopefully have GOOD positive dreams about our future baby!

Edited to add one of my favorite prayers.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; the courage to change the things I can; and the wisdom to know the difference

Driving down Mid River Mall Dr today, I saw that the church which is near 94 has an adoption event scheduled for May 5. Their billboard says that they will have many adoption agencies, domestic and international present. I don't know if this is of any help to you, but it might be interesting.

Hi Bec, Your old Resolve buddy here. You know there is probably some young, very scared and very pregnant girl somewhere with her hand on the phone just waiting to call the agency. I'm sure they don't all make up their mind's the second they get pregnant. Doors can open anywhere- maybe not necessrily at your agency either. You are in our prayers and your baby is in our prayers that he/she finds you quickly.
Much love,
