Adoption Update: Sit Still, My Daughter - 11.16.2012

We have inquiries out on two sibling sets - AMEN!! I know now this is the true waiting process we were warned about...and the past 10 months have only been pre-waiting practice, but it is still exciting to see movement.  We don't know anything about one of the siblings sets except their ages and gender (they were reccomended by our caseworker and we trust her).  I have fallen in love with the other set through reviewing their profiles (No, I did not learn my lesson on the last set of children we were not chosen for).  I started to plan, and dream, and shift my focus around these potential matches (either set).  But, before I could get ahead of myself, the Lord directed me through my reading in Ruth:  "Sit still, my daughter, until thou know how the matter will fall." (Ruth 3:18) Such wise counsel from my merciful Father.  We won't know if we will be recieved by the children's social worker and be allowed to continue in the process.  Submitting an inquiry is no promise for a step forward.  Only a step in faith.  So, I am excited. I am hopeful. I am relieved. I am grateful. I am glad. And I am still as I can until I know how the matter will fall.
