Reflecting on what the future holds

I'm sorry I haven't updated in so long.  The truth is, that there isn't much to update.  We've been in the Active Pool for just over a month.  We have our online profile up and running too.  Other than that, it's just a waiting game at this point.  

There is another pretty big thing in our life that's up in the air right now, but I'm not quite ready to share what that is on here.  If you could just have that in your prayers too, we'd appreciate it.  It also has to do with our future.  (as most things do:)

I don't have an exact number (I don't ever seem to when I update on here! whoops!) but we are getting much closer to our total fundraising goal for our Adoption Expenses!  Thank you for supporting us, giving generously and praying for us along this journey!

We're encouraged that we are not going at this alone!  We have a mighty God, and wonderful family and friends around us!  You know what they say, "it takes a village" to raise a child.  I can see why.  (I realize our situation is a little different than most though....)

We were encouraged to learn that some friends just recently got to bring their children home from Africa, who they'd been matched with for over 2 years but were unable to bring home till now.  Praise the Lord that they are united in their forever family!


Thanks for reading along, supporting, standing beside, sharing life and praying with us!  We couldn't be more thrilled that we are  getting one step closer to bringing Baby Wilson home!!!

Current Prayer Requests:
-Continued support in saving and raising the remaining money.
-Wisdom for the future.
-That we continue to grow closer to God and each other through this process.
-For the Birthmother and her baby.
-For all the caseworkers we are/will work with at our agency.
-Patience in the waiting....

Thankful for you,
Juli and Jesse
