Change of plans

So this weekend did not exactly turn out the way we had intended. About one third of the way into our 10 hour drive, the caseworker called and said the birthmother has to cancel because she has to work all day today. And on Sunday, so we have to reschedule for next weekend. We turned our car back around and headed home.

We are not sure what to make of this in light of what we've already been thinking about. The caseworker didn't ask us for the money anyway (if she did, we would have said see-ya!). But then this doesn't exactly instill confidence that everything will work either. As we were driving home, I was thinking about how I had been praying for our path to become clear and I thought, "God, if you are trying to send us a message, you are going to have to be a little more clear."

The change in plans did have an upside. We had time to spend in a city that was on the route that we wanted to visit but never had the chance before. And we've been wanting to go to the Longest Yard Sale for several years but something always kept us from going. Today we finally went and picked up this sweet little chair:


  1. That chair is adorable!

    In my experience, sometimes the right path is very easy, but sometimes it's very hard. And the things worth working for are always the best.

    I hope things are more illuminated, soon. I've been thinking so much about you guys and hoping for the best (whatever that ends up to be)!

  2. Just catching up on your last few posts. I'm so sorry for the finincial surprise and the difficulty that comes with that. I'm also sorry you weren't able to meet the birthmother today. Although it sounds like you really made the best of it, I am sure that was quite a let down after all the anticipation.

    Thinking of you and praying your path becomes very clear!!

  3. Sorry things didn't go as planned, but I'm glad you were able to make a nice day of it! Everyone always says that flexibility is key in adoption (and in parenting!), and it sounds like you're doing a great job of being flexible and trusing the process. Wishing you more clarity soon!
