many thanks

Thank you to everyone for your messages and words of encouragement over our news last week. While it is a let down I know God’s hand is in this in a major way just by the peace that we feel.

We still don’t know where we are going from here but in the last week we’ve been able to talk about some things that we kept saying we would do “after the adoption”. Now that that isn’t happening (at least not right now) it seems like we have so many options.

On thing I know for sure, life is still going to change for us. God is constantly pushing us out of our comfort zones into the story He is writing for us. After all, He is a God “who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” (Ephesians 3:20).

Who knows what He has in store . . .

with love,

    1. Thanks Cassie, a lot of Canadians have to work through a Canadian agency called Choices who works with MLJ for DRC adoptions and they have also called some of their clients and informed them they can no longer work with them. We are at the point right now where we are at peace with our adoption stopping and aren’t really looking for answers as to why. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Oh Chantel! I don’t know how I missed your blog post last week, but I am so sorry that your adoption plans have come to a halt. Still, it’s nice to see how God has been comforting and encouraging you as to what plans He has for you next. Sending prayers and hugs your way. Fiona xoxo
