OK, so I learned a couple of things. I must pray before I fill out any form or for that matter before I attempt any step in this process. God was very clear in reminding me of that when I woke up this morning. He also convicted me, once again, of my prideful thinking that I'm the one who is going to make this adoption happen as quickly as possible. He reminded me that He has Nadia's days numbered and knows exactly when she will officially be a part of our family. I just need to rest in His promises and work within His timeline without a preconceived idea of what that should look like.
Ah, yes, isn't it just like God to use a 2-page form to continue to mold my character and remind me of His Sovereignty!!! Guess I'll put the saltines away and get my bible out--and some CHOCOLATE of course!!! :)
