Praying for Patience

It's been 4 years since we officially starting trying to conceive a child. I often think about how different our life would be if we would have been successful within the first few months. Our life would be different, but I'm not sure if it would be better. I am so grateful for everything we have been through, and (no offense to those of you who had no trouble conceiving) we feel "chosen" to take the path we are on. Adoption is not for the weak at heart. We are pulling every ounce of faith we can find deep down inside to get us through this. We are still trying to figure out God's plan, and we are starting to pray for the child that will be ours. We ask that you help us with those prayers.

Adoption Update:
We have completed all the paperwork for the PA homestudy. We are waiting for our agency to set up our home visit, which will hopefully be in the next week or 2. We have been working on our profile, which is the story of our life and pictures which will be shown to potential Birthparents. Once that is all completed, we will receive our approval letter, which will be sent to Adoption Circle (Ohio agency) along with the other things required in Ohio and our profile. Once they review everything, we will be approved and waiting. We are praying that will be by the end of August/beginning of September.

My God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
-Phillipians 4:19
