We received some news from our social worker today. The foster family who Mimi is currently placed with attends church, and the pastor's family from that church would like to adopt her. So they would still consider us, but it would be many months before they would schedule the meeting, since the pastor's family doesn't have their homestudy done yet. Most likely they would choose the pastor's family for her, since she already knows them. Really, we are glad she is going to a good home, hopefully, but it is still sad for us!
We appreciate so much all your prayers for this situation and for us, God knows what's best for Mimi and we can trust that she is going where He wants her to be. We wish we could tell that pastor's family how much Mimi has been prayed for! Hopefully in heaven we can.
So, now what? We don't know. We trust that God will continue to guide and lead us along! But, on the other hand, we are feeling disappointed and sad today.
