Another Update

I'm glad jigsaw puzzles can only be finished one piece at a time.  Imagine buying a puzzle that's already been completed.  That would be ridiculous.  Or wait, they actually sell those - they're called posters.  But the point of a puzzle is not in the picture only.  Not only is there a sense of accomplishment incorporated throughout the process, especially when the last piece is put into place, but studies have proven that working on jigsaw puzzles can have immense long-term effects, strengthening the brain and warding off conditions such as dementia and alzheimer's.

I feel like this adoption is a puzzle for us:  we're working on it piece by piece, and when we reach the end we will be thrilled to see how it all looks.  But for now, we get to rejoice in the small successes as the process works to strengthen our faith.  And, if you haven't noticed yet, we have a small success that we are definitely taking the time to celebrate - we've reached our FIRST GOAL!!!  I feel like this happened in such a short time - a grand total of 5 weeks since our first fundraiser.

Sure, in the grand scheme of things we are tip-toeing across the Sahara, but progress is progress and I believe even the smallest steps deserve recognition, with all glory being given to God.  So praise God!!
