“Sometime this week”
And it is Thursday
That was the response I got when I asked about when the birth family would be viewing profiles. We are still the only family…
The requirements are such that not a lot of families would be a fit…
I wish I could share, since I think the birth mom should see more than one family;
and honestly if there were other families we would pull our hat out of the ring since we DO NOT have the funds.
But, the thought of a baby waiting in cradle care goes against everything that we are and everything we are called to do…
When I asked about reduction in funds or a payment plan…I got no response; so I asked again…and again… and got the answer “I need to ask…”
Pray with me that God moves for this little one that He loves so very much; that a family would be found with the funds, or that he would bless us supernaturally with the funds.
Due to the distance from this precious one ; only sixty miles away…if we are told we are the family; the placement will either be the same day or the next day; not a whole lot of time to come up with it…She is already born and waits…
The only reason we responded is they made a SECOND appeal for families as they had none…and we did not reply the first time…
Please pray with us and intercede for HER…as she waits

Are we supposed to be the one?
Where will the funds come from?
We are the ONLY family at this point to be presented this week…
We want what is best…
I asked to share here on my blog;
the response to the question was NO…due to the confidentiality issues with this case
High legal risk
We have done that before
We have done that before
The only family

The Heart, But No money
God will have to move…
I Want HIS BEST will
Fees: agency $12,000 + facilitator $8000-10,000

If we are not the family; pray that God will raise up a family … she has been in cradle care for over a month…It is time for her to come home.

OH MY GOSH
Do you know how hard it is to not respond with a yes??
I have to trust God that this is not the right timing as we do not have the funds
$20,000 if I had that today, we would probably be bringing home a little girl
They want a PA family and we have to stay within PA…
It is so close just about sixty miles away…
But I am quiet…I am not responding because we just DO NOT have that …
not even close.
But God owns the cattle on a thousand hills….
sigh. Why is someone called and the funds are not available…
“those that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength…
they shall mount up on wings as eagles…”
I assume because it is a wait…
But pray she finds her perfect family!!

Instead of selling something pretty, or trying to make you buy something that you may, or may not, want; I freely offer my blogs and especially the links page that I have developed over years of work. If you feel led to help us in our adoption journey just hit the “for our adoption fund” button on this page or on the sidebar of my blog site. It takes you to a paypal fund.
It is hard to wait when a family is looking and thinking about your family as a possible placement. Waiting is hard.

Our home study went out on a PA situation 🙂 We are praying that God does what He does best to help the family make this decision:
- and the family either decides that they will parent their special one!! They can do it!!
- or they pick the family that they are led towards; the one in their minds eye they can envision their little one there…Right there that is the home for my baby 🙂
We just have to wait and see if it is us… Meanwhile, our adoption fund is rather low, but God can turn it around so very quickly…in an instant in fact. We are trusting … If you would like to help…
Total donated as of 2/2/15 : $195.00 thank you so much!
I work hard on this page providing a service I hope to those of you looking for situations and I love doing that…But we were approached about a situation in our agency and we do not have the funds to move forward. Most of our agency special needs adoptions are in the range of $16,000 agency fees; lawyer fees are of course on top of that amount.
I am feeling badly today that we will have to say no… but I do not want to the NEXT time. So, instead of selling something pretty, or trying to make you buy something that you may or may not want; I freely offer my blogs and if you feel led to help us in our adoption journey just hit the “for our adoption fund” link button at the bottom of this page or on the sidebar of my blog site. It takes you to a paypal fund that I promise to keep you up to date on here. We are so very limited in the situations we can say yes to since we need to stay in our home state of Pennsylvania at this time.
Always when our agency has special needs situations it is not like international adoptions where you have a picture and you know the special need and you can have a time frame. I have no timeframe God knows what the timeframe is. One thing I know is that I HATE to say no. WE may do cradle care for her, but unless funds come in overnight, we will not be able to say yes…. not able to say yes is a NO 😥
Total given to date: 1/20/15 $45.00
