Home study is passed... and so now we wait. and wait. and wait.  Each month we get a report from our agency about our profile views.  Our profile has been shown to four different expecting mothers, and all of them "felt a stronger connection to another family" as the agency says. 

How polite of them. 

It's frustrating knowing another month has come and gone with no news.  I can't help but think if there is something different we should have done with our profile.  It's hard not questioning and analyzing every aspect of ourselves that was put into that profile.  

But for now, we are going to find the joy in our pre-baby moments.  This weekend we are going to shoot guns to prepare for our hunting expedition in Missouri and celebrate the birth of baby #2 for a good friend.   No one said you can't have fun while practicing patience!
Romans 12:12
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. (NIV)


  1. Waiting is the worst! Keep your strong faith! God is finding you the perfect fit into your amazing family...but just being picky about it. You are both amazing. Love you.

  2. Thank you for such sweet encouragement, Julie! Think about you and your growing family often! :)

  3. As trite as it sounds, everything happens for a reason, meaning your baby just hasn't been created yet. You will be a fabulous mom Melissa. In the meantime, continue to find joy in the moments before you. Your baby will come. Merry Christmas.
