whiplash


here's how it went down:

-we decided on Thailand.

-we decided on Holt.

-we signed on with Holt.

-Holt closes their Thai program.  Estimated re-opening of December 2008.

-We sign on with WACAP.

-We begin the home study process with one of WACAP's Texas home study agencies.  

-We are fully pleased with WACAP as an agency, but I remain unsettled because I prefer that Holt primarily cares for their children through foster care while WACAP cares for their children in orphanages.  (Different things are priorities to different people and this apparently is a priority of mine as I could not get past it.

- A couple of weeks ago I call Holt to check the status of their Thai program.  It has still not reopened but a spot has just become open as a family switched from the thailand to the Ethiopia Program.

-We are offered their spot.

-Much home study agency drama ensues as we are not working presently with an agency that Holt works with. 

-I think (and hope and pray) that all is going to work out as we head back to Holt.  Though the home study process will be a bit more complicated, I think that it will be worth it for our family.

Ultimately we are really excited as we continue to try to navigate God's weird and wacky ways.

His ways are certainly not like ours!!! I hope and pray God gives you lots of peace as He walks you through this homestudy process with all of the complications. There must be a reason...
