God has a plan...

God has a really clear plan and while we dont know every piece of it, today made the whole situation with the BM about as clear as can be. The writing is all over the wall and it hurt to see how clear it was but we also realized that God knew how emotionally attached to the BM and these babies we had gotten. Im just glad gave us such a clear answer and now it all makes sense as hard as it is to swallow especially what all we have found out.

An email a friend sent to me, I need to frame this all over our house:)-To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.' When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.'

For our plans we are just going to sit back and see what road God has in store for us. All of this has really made us want to go with an agency. We are still in the cue with Bethany so well see. We have never had anything against Bethany they have been nothing but kind and generous its just the wait. We did talk to our pastor though and he said that no one has ever had to wait over 18 mths. They did tell us since we are younger we probably would be picked sooner bc most couples they get are anywhere from mid to late 30's, some even early 40's.

We seem to keep coming back to them time and time over. Maybe God is trying to teach us patience in all of this and to really rely on him for everything. We are going to pray that he will direct us on the path he wants us to go down and well see where that path goes.

In other news the next few weekends are pretty exciting and hopefully it will help take our minds off of everything:)

  • This weekend is the first college football game (MSU vs. JSU), then we are going up to see chads family and stay the weekend with them.
  • Chads 30th birthday is Sept. 8..hes getting old..haha!
  • next weekend is the trip to see my cousin, her little girl and hubby (MSU vs. Auburn)
  • then the next weekend is Nashville (MSU vs. Vanderbilt) and possibly go see Wicked if we can get tickets.
Yes we are big time football people (for MSU-dont confuse with University of MS better known as Ole Miss-thats our major rival and would be a major insult:)

Girl I LOVE football!!!

And I totally agree seeing that your like me I get attached really soon too! How can you not? It's wearing your heart on your sleeve and I personally think that is a beautiful thing ( although I was totally persecuted for it today!) So an agency is a great place for people like me and you!

AND....when my hubby turned 30 it was great! LOL cuz I could officially call him old :)

good luck with Bethany. We are still on that route. Do you ever look at their website and the couples in waiting? They are not that old so just didn't want you to get your hopes up, most of them look young. (not early 20s young but not ooooold either)

Misty-I have only looked at it once months ago, nothing anytime recently. I was going by what the lady in the JXN office told me. By older she said mid to late 30's, some early 40's.
