We have this criteria for adoption:
- children in need
- siblings born after 7/2005
- "less" expensive on the adoption scale
- quick process
- special needs on a case by case basis
Is this too much to ask?
I have been perusing different agencies waiting children's photolistings. And seriously, I have only found one that semi fits the criteria. This makes it sounds so business like and I'm not fond of that idea. I want to be faithful in this journey.
Lord, I know you have the child(ren) picked out for us. Do you want us to pick a waiting child or get on the list and wait for a refferal?
I know that months have passed and we've not really moved forward in this process. I'm torn between choosing an agency and waiting for a referral versus the waiting child lists that don't perfectly fit us. Lord, you know.
Ethiopia proves to adopt younger children which might increase our opportunities for siblings younger than Scott. But their process is longer. Ghana has the shorter process but older children. Add to that Rwanda (which I know very little about) and I'm turning in circles I think.
This time has proved to be good to pray about the process, for the children and their families. But I don't want it to be so long that dissapoinment begins to creep in...
