Next Appoitment Date is Set!

Our next (and hopefully final!) appointment is set for June 24th!  It feels like forever away but we are so excited that there is light at the end of the tunnel!  John has been busy in class all week (poor guy had a "speed week" class that has run him ragged) and I have been trying to keep myself busy around the house and getting back into some type of workout routine!  We were able to enjoy a nice weekend away last weekend at the All-Star Race at Lowe's Motor Speedway (Sprint hooked us up with a fabulous weekend & I got to ride in the pace car!) so God has definitely gone before us to make the wait a little easier!

Waiting...if you were to look up the word in the dictionary, you'd find a picture of Jamee and I...seriously!

We still can't give out details...but as you know we've been matched and are just waiting for one more step to be finalized. However, the timeline is beyond our control (shock shock!). I'm learning we've never "had control" of any of these things. It's funny: our concept of being in 'control.' The best way to be in control is to realize you're not in control, and all you can do is trust the only One who's in control (this being God of course).

Time is out of our control---and so we wait, with anticipation, with anxiety (hard not to be), with hope, with a longing inside to love a child we believe God has and will match us with. Keep praying... We are hoping that around the end of June/early July things will be done...but again, time is not in our hands...:D
Until next time...

Match #3!

We have been matched!  We can't give alot of details at this point but we are really crossing our fingers that the third time is the charm!  We will know more within the next couple weeks!  There are A LOT of unspoken requests on this one so please keep us in your prayers!
