I’ve often heard, in adoption circles, the term paper pregnant. I think it’s quite cute. After all, in a physical pregnancy everyone around you sees your physical changes and there is no doubt that you are indeed expecting a baby. However, with an adoption, there are no physical signs to tell the world that you, too, are expecting a baby. I’ve seen cute, little shirts that say “Paper pregnant”, with a little stork under the text.
Anyways, all that to say that we are officially paper pregnant! After much prayer, going back and forth and back again, we settled on a different agency than originally planned. Without going into too much detail, we changed agencies based on their pregnancy policies. We have no intention whatsoever of becoming pregnant while in the process of adopting, but we wanted assurance that if God had other plans, we would not be forced to put our adoption on hold or lose any money we’d put in thus far. Our new agency fits our preferences perfectly. Not only that, our new agency has a more reasonable fee schedule and is a smaller agency than the first, which means our wait for baby Zoe will likely be significantly smaller than originally expected (an average of three to six months for a referral!).
Please continue to share our story with others and pass along the links to our puzzle fundraiser and Bows for Life! You can share these links on your facebook or blog as well. We changed the date of our first adoption yard sale to Saturday, June 11th at our home. Please be praying for abundant provision!
Thank you as always for your continued support and encouragement. I enjoy keeping you all up-to-date on the progress.
