The visit went really well. I loved talking with Kathi about everything... how we get along, live, interact with our dogs, each other and other people, etc. It doesn't seem as overwhelming now as it did before. Hubby and I have talked about adoption on and off since we got married and it seemed like there was too much to it and that it would be too hard for me. The hardest part at this point is waiting. Waiting for all the references to come in. Waiting for the home studies to be good and done. Waiting for news about a baby who's birth mother has selected us to be parents of. Waiting for the day that baby is born and in our arms. At this point we don't know of a baby, much less when we will get to meet him/her. But God does. He knows everything that's on my mind, in my heart, and He is in ultimate control of everything. He already knows what baby, where, when, etc. I don't always think about that or trust in that fully - but I know I need to. He wants me to fully rely on Him and not on when/where/what baby we will have as our own! If you have any advice, or bible verses that might help me right now, please let me know! :-)
Anyway, the first home study was exciting and I can't wait for our second meeting this coming Monday. There's that "waiting" again :-P Oh well, God is with me and He will get me through this process with my hubby until we are parents! :-)
