I feel like I have been waiting for May for a while now. I've been wanting to say "Next Month." Next month we will be moving and next month we will find out what is going to happen with our foster son, whether it be adoption or reunification. Next month will bring answers! Finally!! I love the little guy to death but the waiting is the hardest part of all of this. I just want to know so that we can have an idea of what our future holds. If it is "with" him I will shout Hip Hip Hooray! and do a happy dance and sing praises. If it is "without him" then I will prepare my mind and heart for a different journey. It will just mean God has some other awesome kid or kids for us to fall in love with.
My husband lost his job two weeks ago and has an interview with a great company this Tuesday at 9 a.m. The job is perfectly suited to all of his skills and abilities and we are PRAYING hard that it will lead to a job offer that day! It's good to hope right? So we will hope and pray. We know God has something for him, we are hoping this is it!
As for the move, we *think* we are moving into the house next door. It has been the plan since last October and we've been looking forward to it. But of course we didn't anticipate this job issue. We have until May 15th for my husband to find a job for us to be able to move into this house. The owners are friends of ours and we want to give them adequate notice to find another renter if need be. If we can't rent the house we will be looking at renting a condo or a month to month house. It would be a challenge but I know we'd get through it.
This is such a time of uncertainty, we should feel overwhelmed (and did at first) but God is so good and He has given us both a pretty strong peace. God has not forgotten us, He loves us, and he promises to be with us always. God never promised a 3 bedroom/2 bath with a yard but He did say that He would never leave us nor fosake us. We are trusting in His Word. We can't wait to share all that He is going to do in the next few months and see how all of these uncertainties become blessed realities!!
