Adoption Update: Rays of Hope - A Perfect Gift - 10.3.2012

"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning." -James 1:17

We met with our new caseworker. She is direct, old-fashioned, and unsentimental. But, mostly she is a ray of light in this dark dark world of foster care...a good and perfect gift.  She contacted us as soon as she recieved our file and has been dilegent to keep us updated and informed.  She has been so communicative about the process. She has encouraged us to narrow our focus, rather than broaden it to liberal standards. An answered prayer. Her confidence has given us hope for a quick placement and restored our spirits to joyful anticipation. She seems to run on instinct and experience...outside "the system" (or above it). The process has never felt this personal, this real, this supernatural... We can see the Lord's work in our caseworker's deliberate questions, comments, and actions.  She is just becoming familiar with our case, but we have been so encouraged by her honest desire to help our family. We know the Lord moved heaven and earth (well, shifted our case to a different department) in order to place us in her capable hands.  We are praising Him for his  faithfulness and omniscence. We know His ways are not our ways....but, so much higher.   We are so thankful for the gift of hope.
