Also of note this week:
Monday night we got a phone message on our answering machine from the director of the adoption agency. She said that she wanted to "run something by us"-- which of course meant an adoption possibility. Our hearts were pounding like crazy-- what with Snowflakes and my new job arrangement that we had just worked out, and my health.... We called her back and she said that she had been calling to ask us if we were interested in being included in the family possibilities she was showing to a Mom scheduled for c-section on Wednesday-- yeah, as in yesterday. BUT she went ahead and included us and the Mom picked someone else. Sigh. So we didn't know quite how to feel.
We are very thankful that all of these concerns are in the hands of our dear heavenly father, who is so much wiser than we are.
