    I just put together a blog post I’d been meaning to write, about helping a child pay attention – you know those wiggly, floppy types who zone out or bounce around easily? If you’ve found anything particularly helpful at your house, I’d love it if you’d stop by and join the conversation by leaving a comment – I’m sure others would benefit from your wisdom as well.

    Great post…amd so true!! I have a wiggler :) My wiggler is only 5 so it’s understandable, but your tips can apply for all ages!

    Thanks for sharing…it’s so good to hear that we aren’t the only ones that have a wiggler. I also loved the pictures and stories about your adopted children. We are in the process of adopting a little girl overseas. We can’t wait to bring her home.

    Thank you – it’s good to hear we’re in good company. :-) Sara, how exciting – can you share where you’re adopting from? Adoption has been such a blessing to our family – we can’t imagine life without our guys!

    I have been thinking and praying abut adoption for quite awhile now.  It is something I feel very strongly about.  Unfortunately, my husband doesn’t currently share my desire.  I think he’s concerned about finances and being able to meet the needs of an adopted child.  His brother was adopted, as was his nephew and one of his cousins has adopted 4 children.  I continue to pray that God will either change his heart or give me peace about the situation.  It’s in His hands.  If the desire is truly from Him, then it’s simply a matter of waiting on His time.  Two years dh wouldn’t think about homeschool either, now he’s a firm supporter.

    Oh, I understand! Adoption was on my heart for many years before we moved forward – we were not in the same place either as a couple. I once shared my longing to adopt with a wise woman, who reminded me that the angel didn’t just appear to Mary to tell her she’d have a baby – he appeared to Joseph as well. She assured me that if we were to do this, God would speak to my husband, too – and He did, but in His time, not mine, as you said. My prayer was the same as yours and I continue to pray “thy will be done,” even as I’d still happily welcome home another. It is amazing to see how God changes things and how good His plans are when I get out of the way. Still working on that part, LOL.

    Just chiming in to say that my DH and I were on different timetables, too, on the subject of adoption. My DH came around, though. :) Our DD, who is almost 4, is a complete blessing!!

    Amiee,

    Our agency has asked that we not share where we are adopting from. When we do get her I will be happy to fill you all in :)

    For those discouraged about your husbands agreeing, I was where you were a year ago. It has always been on my heart but when I asked my husband to consider it he turned it down. Then I aksed him to just pray about it and six months later he came to me and said that he was feeling led into adopting. Now I think he is more excited than anyone. So just pray about it and let God work out the details.

    Thanks for the encouragment, Sara!  I know it is all in God’s hands.  And His will and timing are perfect.
