So the twist in the adoption process is that when our dossier is completed, we can look at a database of children that have not been matched with a family. If we find a child on this database that we want to make a part of our family, we can request them when we submit our dossier. This will shorten the time period because we won't have to wait for a match to be made.
We aren't sure what we are doing. We want to leave control in God's hands. Whenever we are about to submit the dossier, we will look at the database and see if we feel God pulling us toward a certain child. If not, we will let the agency choose for us.
We are getting closer and closer to being able to submit our applications. Please pray for us as we make the final decisions on which agencies to use for the homestudy and child placement. Thank you and God bless!
