Isaiah 40:28-31

Posted by Angie at 7:37 AM
A new year.  2012.  Wow, already?  Could this be the year?  The year of a referral?  Right now we are swimming in a sea of paperwork, pulling together all the documentation we need to complete our home study.  And I LOVE it!  I love having something tangible to do for our adoption.
I can hardly believe we have our first meeting with the social worker on Saturday.  This Saturday!  I have found great comfort in Isaiah 40:28-31 these last few days.

28 Do you not know?
   Have you not heard?
The LORD is the everlasting God,
   the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
   and his understanding no one can fathom.
29 He gives strength to the weary
   and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
   and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the LORD
   will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
   they will run and not grow weary, 
 they will walk and not be faint. 

This could be the year.  The year we become parents.
But today, it is not about the year, but this week. 
And this week, I am going to be working on this...

Much love,
Future Mama

Good luck with homestudy paperwork! The Taiwan coordinator at our agency said something about not doing the homestudy until we are close to a referral, where as the Korea program has you complete it right away as the first big step before everything else. Do you know why Taiwan does this?
