bigger bump...ugh!

Well. Today was a day of weird news. So we've been waiting for our social worker to get the paperwork from our agency for a while now. She got it. And read it. And realized that she can't fill it out because she's not a 501c3 (non-profit).

I called AGCI and they said to forward it on to Little Flower Adoption Agency. (Backstory: our SW can operate as a satellite SW of that agency, even though they are based four hours away and she is like ten minutes. She did all of our visits and such, we just filled out extra paperwork, etc. for the other agency, too. Sounds more confusing than it is.)

We notified our SW of the plan and asked her if she would go ahead and forward it to Little Flower. Turns out they are not a 501c3 either, according to her, because in the state of Texas, placing agencies do not have to be.

AGCI says this is not good.

I tried to get ahold of Little Flower today without luck.

An interesting opportunity presented itself yesterday to work with The Arrow Project. They are one of the main agencies dealing with the Eldorado Mess. I am starting to wonder if all of our adoption stuff is not working out because I should take this opportunity with The Arrow to work with those kids. I'm feeling a little lost and confused lately, so am praying for some answers from either our adoption front or The Arrow front so that I can move in the direction that is actually going to take us somewhere!

Thanks for all the encouragement. Lately I just don't know how to feel about much of anything.

Oh this is so frustrating. You are the one with the words of wisdom...I'm searching for what to say. I will pray for you, that God would lead you in the direction that will solve this. Keep listening for Him (as I know you do) and let Him do his work through you. It will work out!

Hey Nell Ann,
God's plan is always so much bigger and better than ours but when we are in the thick of it - it is often hard to understand WHY. I hope you hear something soon. Although God's plan isn't always what we think it should be, He always has our best interest in mind. All I can say is keep praying for direction, it will come - I will be praying too.

Oh I hope that you get the answers you are looking for. I know that things will turn out right in the end. Best Wishes!

I'm sorry to hear this Nell Ann. I hope it gets ironed out quickly. For what it's worth, My little one just looked over my shoulder at your blog and said "oooh, dat's a mommy and daddy". So I think his advice is to persevere. :)

Nell Ann,
What a hard day. News like that is not fun at all.
Hang in there. Know that your friends are praying for you.
