No Process In Place

Hi all!
I hope your day is going well.
Things have been pretty crazy here.
The Appliance Guy has already been here
to repair the dryer and oven
I'm still waiting on the air conditioner
repair man to call back.
Add to that all the bazillion other
things currently going on and you'll
quickly agree that the Hinson
household has gone crazy. :)

So, since my day was already bizarre
I decided to check on my finger prints.
Here we go:
Sam, the original man I was working with is
now on military leave until March 2011.
After many phone calls and transfers I
finally spoke with Angela.
Angela said that there is currently
"no procedure in place" for the name search.
They are doing some name searches manually,
but she doesn't know if my name is on the list.
She was very nice, apologized and asked me
to check back again next week.
When I asked if there was anything I could do
to help the process along she said to just be patient.

I promptly reported all of the above to my
precious social worker Karla.
She was so encouraging and put me in touch
with her co-worker, Marie.
Now that Marie is on the case she's going
to do some investigating and get back with me.

Hhmmm, The SBCN 
may have No Process In Place, 
but this girl does.
I call it, taking it to my Father.
I cry... 
He listens.
I complain... 
He gives me confirmation of His plan.
I get discouraged...
He sends a cheerleader.

This adoption process is taking
But ya know,
I don't think I'd ask for it any other way.
By the time Emily Margaret comes home
I will be ready to parent her,
at the feet of Jesus.
He's using this walk of faith
to teach me how to be less self reliant
and more God reliant.

Thank you Lord for calling us to adopt
and for taking the time to equip me as well.
This is going to be one incredible testimony!

God's blessings friends, Sarah Hinson
aka Emily Margaret's Prayer Warrior :)

I was thinking of all of this today, because someone asked the process was going and I have decided that all of these "mishaps" and "process delayers" are just God's way of saying, "Hey guys, Emily Margaret isn't here yet, so it doesn't matter how soon you get this stuff done." Love you sis!

I've had you on my heart for the past couple of days, and I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that I'm thinking about you and praying for you! Hope things are starting to move along!!!
