While I sat in my RE’s office yesterday morning, becoming more and more confused, with each passing moment, wondering which option was going to be best for us, I knew, without a shadow of a doubt, that I needed to wait on God to show me the way. That He would give us an answer. One way or another, if we waited quietly, the answer would come.
What I hadn’t banked on was just how quickly that answer would come. Exactly 5 hours and 15 minutes later to be exact! I was driving in my car, on my way back from lunch, when my phone rang, I looked down and saw it was our social worker and I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt why she was calling! After some small talk, we had the following exchange:
SW: “So I know its short notice and I’m putting you under lots of pressure, but…. any chance you can work on your profile and get it to me by Friday?”
Me: “I can try, but what’s the rush? I’d really like to spend some time with it.”
SW: “Well I don’t want you to be too excited, but…. we have just finished counselling a new birth mom and well, you’ve been matched. We’re meeting with her on Saturday to present potential adoptive parents profiles and I just have this feeling that we HAVE to present yours!”
I can’t remember the rest of the conversation. All I know is that I was barely functional for the rest of the day! And that we had a sleepless night last night working our bums off to get our profile done and dusted and presentable ready for the couriers this morning.
I know God is God of miracles and I’m believing He’s busy with one right now!!!!!!!
How am I going to wait till next week to hear.
For those of you who believe in the power of prayers, please can I ask that each and every one of you remember us in prayer on Saturday morning at 08h00 CAT? You know the whole.. where two or more stand together in prayer thing………
