Quick Update...

I feel as if I haven't blogged about our journey in SO LONG! The truth is, I haven't. I have been finding it so hard recently to blog or even read blogs. I have so many things going on in my life...between work, family, selling Mary Kay, trying to start out new Doggie Boutique business, and just everyday life, my blog and blog reading have come in last place.

I did want to give a quick update on where we are because I truly believe that this blogging community is a HUGE group of God's greatest Prayer Warriors. And I could always use prayers...

I am going in on Tuesday this week to get another infusion for my colitis. I truly believe with all my heart and soul that this new medication is doing the trick. I felt great...no stomach aches or pains and I have lots of energy...Praise the Lord!!! On Friday this week, I will have another colonoscopy so my doctor can actually take a look to ensure the medication is working the way it should. If all is well, we are going to procede with another IVF procedure. I covet your prayers that my colon is continuing to heal and that we can pursue this avenue with IVF.

On another note, I have been very frustrated on the adoption journey lately. I tried to contact TWO different adoption agencies...one of them I emailed and left a message for them TWICE. Unfortunately, NEITHER of the agencies have returned my call. Please pray that I receive peace over this situation. I am not sure if this is God's way of telling me to sit back and be patient or if it's His way of telling me to wait. Either way, I'd love your prayers for peace...it's so hard coming to the realization that we are finally READY to take this next step with adoption, to have the door slammed in our face. I know it is only temporary, but frustrating still the same.

I will blog again after my results this week with the medication and the colonoscopy. We ARE getting closer to becoming parents...it's finally HIS timing.

I'm so glad things are progressing well with your treatment! I'm sorry the agencies haven't called you back yet, it sounds like their loss. I wish you all the best and hope you find peace soon.

I don't know what agency you are using but we are using Family Adoption Services in Alabama. I have friends that loved working with Open Door Adoption in Georgia and Bethany Christian Services. Also check out Christian Adoption Consultants. :)
