Adoption #2- News from the Agency
Well, we've received a call from our state agency. Unfortunately, it wasn't great news!

Remember that 1st placement call that I mentioned about two weeks ago, for the 11 month old little girl? Well, we were told today that we were not the family picked to receive her.

Oronzo and I weren't particularly surprised by this news. In fact, we would've been quite surprised if we were picked out of the 30 other families, especially considering we weren't even officially licensed at the point that our homestudy was reviewed. I suspect that a family who has been waiting longer than us was picked, at least I hope this is that case.

Still, I can't help but feel disappointed that we weren't chosen. I know, God has the right child in mind for our family and we need to be patient. I'm trying to keep that in mind.

Each time that the phone rings, my heart races a bit and I wonder, 'Is it the agency calling us with a placement?' So far, we've received no further placement calls.

And so, we wait. Thank goodness we have Snuggle Bug to love on! He helps to keep us smiling with his fun antics.

I'm so sorry this one didn't work out for you. I know it would have been amazing for it to be this quick. Hopefully, you'll get some good news soon. This is definitely a roller coaster ride!

OW, I'm sorry that this one didn't work out, but God does have YOUR child out there....and maybe she/he hasn't been born yet? God will bless you with the perfect child for your family, but I know how hard it is to wait. Still praying for you!

I'm sorry - I know that you know the right child is going to come to you, but the waiting is so hard. I'm glad you have Snugglebug to love on!

sorry to hear this little girl wasn't placed with you, but it sounds like you're in good spirits about it and that you really didn't expect it so it wasn't too much of a let down. I think it's so exciting that you can start taking children now though and can't wait for the announcement when you have a placement!

I'm really sorry that she wasn't matched with you. I'm hoping and praying Snuggle Bug will soon have a brother or sister!
