I have been checking my email with a little more anticipation than usual. Okay, you’re right… a LOT more anticipation than usual.
Our agency told us that they expect the CCAA to put out “the list” this week. It’s hard for them to predict when it will come out, so they may be wrong, but I am hopeful. Even if it does come out, we are requesting some of the most often requested special needs because they are the more minor ones, and other families who have been in the program longer will probably be matched before us. I don’t know that for sure though. If our daughter isn’t on this month’s list, she may be on it next month.
When our agency does pull a child off that list for us, we only have 48 hours to write a LOI (Letter of Intent) saying we want to adopt the child. Once we do that, we can share the medical info with a specialist. We have one week to change our minds if needed. I really don’t want to go through that though.
Lord, I pray you would unite us with our child. Guide us and our agency to her. Give us patience. Please place your mighty hand of protection on her – comfort her, love her, nourish her, keep her safe and healthy. Give us wisdom when it comes time to make these decisions.
Maybe tonight’s the night?! I’ll let you know if it is. If it isn’t, please keep praying.
