We got a call from our family coordinator this afternoon. We were told that we lost our referrals. They are no longer available to us as the children are being pursued by Russian familes. As sad as this news was, I was not surprised. I believe that the Lord has been preparing us for this day for quite some time. I've felt a sort of disconnect from the photos we had of our children and now we know why. It doesn't make it any easier though. It still hurts but I am so thankful for the incredible peace He has given us. We trust that God has the perfect children for us somewhere in Russia and we will wait for them as long as it takes. Hopefully it won't take much longer! Our agency said that we will be at the top of the waiting list for referrals and they should come soon after reaccreditation. I've learned not to hold my breath. We have also asked that they do not send us any photos of our future children, having faces to fall in love with has made this loss all the harder. Please pray for us, for the children we lost, the children that will one day be ours and for reaccreditation. Thak you all for your prayers and support.
We will " trust in the Lord with all our hearts and lean not on our own understanding, in all our ways we will acknowledge Him and He will direct our paths".
