And we wait!
Exciting news in the Schutt household today. After the mountains of paperwork and just waiting for things to be processed, we are finally considered to be a waiting family with our adoption agency. YEA!!
So, what does that mean? It means that everything on our end is taken care of (paperwork wise) and now birth familes can start to look at our family as they consider who would be the best family to raise their child. The wait could be anywhere from a day or two or even up to a year or more, but we know that God already has the timing chosen and will let us know when that is when He is ready!
We pray. Since the process has begun, we have started to pray for the birth family and the baby that the Lord would place in our home. The kids faithfully pray as well and wait with anticipation as we do.
More exciting news happened on Saturday. We were approved for our first grant! It is a matching grant through the MICAH fund. Look for more information on that to come later.
Thank you for praying for us.
This past Tuesday Jesse and I mailed out what should be the last of the paperwork needed before we can become a “waiting family”. What this means is that shortly families will be able to start viewing our profile, and from there could select us to adopt their child.
We are excited to enter this next step in the process, trusting in Him, and knowing that His timing is perfect. Our wait could be anywhere from 1 month to even a year or more. We are also working on patience in the process!
One Tiny Comma
I was just doing some updating on Camp’s Website a few minutes ago and I ran into a problem. After making a bunch of changes to the code, I loaded it up to the server and when I refreshed the screen I got nothing but an empty white screen. No website!
So I quickly jumped back to my editor to see what might be the problem. After a few minutes of searching I found the culprit. Do you see it?
Notice how there is a comma at the end of every line?... every line except #241? Yeah, that one missing comma brought down the entire website.
It struck me how often I have one missing comma in my life. You know what I mean? You know how there is that one area that is so hard to give over to God? It’s easy to overlook, but it is possible for that one area to bring down an entire life, ministry, family, etc.
I’m going to be asking the Lord to reveal those missing commas in my life. Will you too?
