Update on our adoption

We are still waiting:(  Our last meeting with our social worker was on June 17th, in which we were told that we would receive a email of our homestudy to be revised by the following week.  We did not receive that email until almost a month later.  I was told that the editor was backed up with a lot of homestudies, well hello a phone call might have been nice.  So after I contacted them things started to move...a little.  The copy was then emailed to our agency and then to Sergey's country to be revised.  We finally received an email last Monday telling us what needed to be changed.  Our social worker is now working on those revisions and then it needs to be sent back to Sergey's country to be revised again.  Waiting on all these people is driving me bonkers!  But at the same time I have a peace that it's all going to work out, just not in the time frame I would have wanted.  But we all know God's timing is sooo much better.  We were also told that it would be in our best interest to wait until after September to travel, the judge is on vacation at the beginning of September, so that means more waiting.  Once we get our homestudy though a lot can be finished on our end.  Sergey turns three this month, I have no idea what his exact birthday is.  I was so hoping to at least have met him by now.  And I was really hoping to be able to celebrate his birthday with him.  This is one of the hardest things I've ever done, knowing my child is  on the other side of the world and having no control and no way to be able to get him makes my whole body ache.  We appreciate your prayers.  We can't wait to hold this little guy in our arms and tell him how much we love him.


  1. I was just thinking about you yesterday and wondering where things were at. Hoping it all speeds up, and soon!!!!

  2. Waiting is one of the hardest things for me to do, yet I find myself having to do a lot of it! Trusting God is another of my struggles, yet He always is Faithful! Praise be to our Loving Heavenly Father Who knows our innermost being! I love you Danielle. :)Anna

  3. Wish I could give you a hug!! I know your arms are aching to hold him. Praying with you for perfect timing...soon <3

  4. I just read your adoption testimony on Adeye's blog and wanted to stop by to encourage you to keep running your race! My husband and I are also adopting (from Ethiopia), and I know what it is to ache for a child. KEEP PRESSING ON!! Psalm 34:10 The lions may grow week and hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing!
    All is grace,

Always happy to hear from you!
