Life Can Change...

When we entered into foster care we knew it wouldn't always be an easy road.  Last time I updated we were close to transitioning...now we are not.  Everything has changed, we were just a couple weeks from transitioning and then just a couple days after my last post we found out we weren't.  It's a rollercoaster for us, but it's been especially tough for our foster daughter.
 
After a family meeting, we committed to 'stay the course' until the Lord provides a permaneant solution for this sweet girl.  Though I can't share details, I'm thankful that the Lord has provided a great 'forever' option for her.  We love and adore her, but the reality is she wants to be with family...we get that and we can't blame her.  Thankfully she enjoys being at our house as well, but long term we want the best for her.  Though the process will most likely be long, I trust that the best plan for her is still to come.
 
The road isn't always easy, but to impact the life of a child is priceless...

It's such a sweet, but hard calling. That little girl is blessed to have a foster family like yours. We will continue to pray for you guys in this journey and for there to be peace in the midst of hard days. Love you guys! Lindsay
