My Hope is in You...

There's a song by Aaron Shust that is played on the radio all the time and I thought about it tonight as I was thinking about the adoption process and life in general. So perfect.

My hope is in You, Lord
All the day long
I won’t be shaken by drought or storm
A peace that passes understanding is my song
And I sing
My hope is in You, Lord

These lyrics can apply to so much of my life and I know my hope for our adoption is in God alone.

Our last home visit was great. We talked about familiar subjects . . .
     . . . the early days of our childhood (where we went to school, etc.)
     . . . how Hampton and I met and when we started dating (always a fun topic, since Hampton once proclaimed to a friend of his: "I'll never date that Nicole Hughes girl" - HAHA)

Maybe that comment was based on such behavior as exhibited in this pic? HAHA.

Other topics included . . .
     . . . when we graduated college, what our degrees are in, graduate school and medical school, when Hampton joined the Air Force
     . . . Hampton's schedule and how that might affect our parenting (I'm honestly looking forward to staying home, although I L.O.V.E. my current job)

We also talked about the next step in the process (after turning in more paperwork, of course), which is to make our profile books. These are books that contain our pictures and some brief info about us. Birthmothers will look at these via the agency and use the profiles to help choose an adoptive family for their baby.

I CANNOT WAIT TO GET STARTED ON THIS. lol. I'm seriously way too excited about it. But really, how many chances do you get to tell someone else all about yourself and your brilliant husband (seriously, he's brilliant . . . if you know him, you know I'm right).

See how brilliant he is?

So, our case worker should have all of our paperwork in by Tuesday and will hopefully have us approved by Friday!!

Later in the song, these lyrics are sung, which represent another part of the adoption process and something we are very familiar with - waiting.

I will wait on You
You are my refuge
I will wait on You
You are my refuge

I wait for the Lord, my soul does wait,
And in His word do I hope.
~Psalm 130:5
