An Adoption Set Back: Sort of

We are excited to adopt from China because it is supposed to be more predictable than Eastern Europe. However, it is still a process run by humans, and the humans goofed.

We were told it would take 4-8 months to adopt. Unfortunately, it was overlooked that this is from the time our paperwork gets to China. It will be at least 2 months before our paperwork gets to China. Which means it will really take between 8-12 to adopt.

For now, we will wait and pray. Pray for Jia. Pray for guidance. Pray for the paperwork. Pray for patience. Pray for knowledge in adopting a 5 year old. Most importantly, pray with thanksgiving for this opportunity to grow, learn, and build our faith.
