Over the past few days, we have had a number of people ask us when we are going to Honduras to get our daughter. We have only one answer - We don't know. Out dossier is in the process of being translated, and the hope is that it will be completed in the next week or so. Once the translating process is done, then it goes to the department that will review our dossier and match us up with a child. There is a possibility that this process will go quickly and we'll receive our daughters information in the next month or so. Then we make travel arrangements for our first trip. That would be awesome...Alicia spoke with our Adoption agency today and it seems that our social worker is trying to lower our expectations. We were told that it could take up to the six months that Honduras has given as their limit, and the six month clock does not begin until the translation is completed, which means we may need to wait until next March.
This past Sunday, I preached a message from James 4:13-17 and our need to submit our plans to the Lord's will. I have been going back over this passage of Scripture and my own sermon in my mind as we need to wait on the Lord's timing.
