Nepal is officially opened!!!! Praise Jesus!!! Yes, the Nepal adoptions are officially opened and running. Meanwhile Andreas and I are still waiting to hear if our Swedish agency will allow us to be a test family for their Nepal program. This is a bit of a frustration for me, but I am trying to be patient and not measure the Swedish program up to the American programs. Things work differently here (slower, but cheaper). So please pray for me as I wait. I try to remember what it was like to be a worker and have families call and be impatient all the time. It is totally understandable, but I am trying to be good.
On an absolutely great note, the agency that I use to work for, New Beginnings, is up and running with the Nepal program that I was privileged to help set up before I left the States. If anyone is interested the link is below to New Beginnings website.
I have received several messages from people starting to adopt from Nepal again and I am so thankful for their passion for these children. God bless you all. I will be praying for you each as you leave messages on my blog.
Along with that I will try to be more faithful about my posts. I haven't been very good for about 6 months now. Sorry for those who faithfully follow.
Samuel is doing wonderfully. He has started back to pre-school, which is good. He was getting bored at home. Which means that he was getting frustrated with me after a month. We did really well until the last week. It is hard to realize that your children need more than just you and it becomes one of those many times that you must release your child a little. I have had many of those moments as he gets older and more independent.
Needless to say we miss you all. Samuel still remembers all his friends and family and we talk about you often. May God be the center of all this year for you and may the many children that are being adopted be brought home this year.
