Tomorrow will mark a milestone in the adoption process. We will finally have our first homestudy visit. I am sure a lot of behind the scenes background check work has been being done the last few months, but it will be great to see something happening. I am excited to meet our social worker, Melissa. We have been talking to her via email or phone since the fall. She seems really sweet.
I will update again when I have more news.
In the mean time, God is revealing so much more to us each day as he breaks our hearts for the world. Wow, how it hurts to even think these days. The more I read, the more I know, the more I am broken... praying to BE the CHANGE we are wishing to see in THE WORLD. I used to think being content was a good thing... in some respects it is. We are content with what we have, we do not need or want for anything (well maybe want but nothing necessary). We are happy with wherever God lands us. Life is a journey and a circus... and we are loving living in it. Okay, back to content and how it is or can be BAD. David and I have been discussing how we should never truly be content with the world and the status quo. God designed us for more. We should never stop doing, the world is in desperate need of love and change. I don't ever want to fall into a routine of completely content... where I am comfortable with not caring about the needs of others. I also am aware that we are only two people, and can't do it all by ourselves.
