I really doubt Kenny Rogers was thinking about adoption when he sang those words but these lyrics have been running through my head the last few days.
This week we hit another little pothole which means it might take us even longer to get our contracts to our agency and after talking to our social worker it sounds like the likelihood of Canada slowing down or closing to the DRC is very, very possible.
As people we know are completing adoptions that started at about the same time as ours I’ve sunk into a bit of a depressed state in the last week.
We’ve prayed about it and considered the options and we really believe that we are supposed to continue with the DRC but it’s very hard with all the unknowns, the possibility of losing tens of thousands of dollars, all the emotional ups and downs . . .
Right now I’m praying hard for both the Canadian and DRC governments, praying this all works out.
So thankful today for the little one we do have.

Hi Friend, I would love for you to sign up for my seasonal-ish newsletter! I would love to send it monthly but I feel like in this season of my life that will probably not happen but I would like to commit to sending one out at least every three months.
In the newsletter you can expect little (or big!) life updates, what I've been reading in the Bible, and all sorts of resources I've been loving and lessons God has been teaching me.
