just wanted to post real quick to let everyone know how things are going. we started to read capri's file last friday, this is all part of the process of the adoption, although it's hard, there has been much needed information found in that 1000+ page file. i will be going on tuesday to continue reading through everything, so please keep me in your prayers as some of the things literally bring me to tears. it is so hard to see what all she's been through, but at least we know she's going to be ours, and all of that is in her past...THANK YOU GOD!!!
as for capri...she's a total nut and she's been catching up developmentally. still behind some, but making huge progress. she's learning her abc's and her shapes and colors...she's picked all of this up faster than we expected which is encouraging.
hope all is well for you and yours and thanks again for everything!!!
okay, we can finally let out that breath that we've been holding for years! capri is going to be OURS. we met with our attorney friday and she assured us that once she receives "the packet" we can officially proceed forward with this long awaited adoption.
it amazes us how things have changed over the past two years. we went from a couple longing for a child, to a couple fighting for a child, to a couple in love with each other as well as their child. GOD has provided so much, even through grief and heartache! we are stronger because of this fight, our testimony and capri's testimony can help others who are going through similar struggles and that gets us stoked to spread the WORD!
we are looking forward to what GOD has in store for us next. at the moment, we are requesting prayer that as HE brings other children into the picture, HE will lead us to the right child. we want to adopt again, but we want to make sure that it is with HIS leading, because we know how hard it is if it isn't HIS will. thank you for your prayers over the past two years with capri and the past nine years of our marriage!
