I *force* myself to be productive at work, to "be anxious for nothing", to talk with God continuously about where we are. It's hard. It's also faith-building, but in the going-crazy sort of way. :)
I'm thankful for other things to occupy my time (like my job which is in a very busy season, like fundraising events, spending time with friends and family, and networking with other adoptive families). I'm thankful for my husband who is a man of great faith. I'm thankful for our agency...
...and I'm thankful for friends who pray for and with us.
One friend (who I look forward to meeting in person soon!) is even doing a giveaway on her blog for join her in prayer for adoptive families currently waiting. It's a really cool thing. Please check it out.

Go to this link and view the list of waiting families in SC with our agency. Choose a family (other than us), read their story, and spend some time praying for them. Pray for their future child, their birthparents, and their hearts as they wait. Leave her a comment to let her know who you prayed for.To partner with her in this, I will give another opportunity for you to win something as you pray for another adoptive family:
- Follow the instructions above (adapted from her website). Then leave a comment here (on our blog) with the family you took a few minutes to pray for. We will give away 2 tickets to our upcoming BBQ & Bids Christmas Adoption Dinner.
