This I know...

Well, we've hit our first bump in the road.  The judge rejected our family.  We were given a chance to send in some more information and it's all been sent.  There was a rush and now, as is the way of adoption, we wait for yet another decision.  It's been a really tough 9 days---really tough.  We love this girl so very much.  I hesitated to write this blog, but I promised to be real in my first very first post. Anyway, I've had 9 days to pray and seek God and this is what I know:

We prayed about this adoption and have seen God move miraculously over and over again.  Whether it was money or timing He has always provided---ALWAYS. 

Psalm 68:5
A father of the fatherless and a judge for the widows, Is God in His holy habitation.

Psalm 68:6
God sets the lonely in families, he leads forth the prisoners with singing; but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Romans 8:28
 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.

Ephesians 6:12
For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.

James 1:27
Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.

Isaiah 1:17
Learn to do good. Seek justice. Help the oppressed. Defend the cause of orphans. Fight for the rights of widows.

Our God is in adoption!  We know how much He loves her and so we trust Him, again.  We are seeking His will and praying and waiting and praying and waiting.  If you would like to battle with us by praying, we would love that.


  1. Praying to an Almighty God who knows your family and knows your daughter. You are all His children and He will protect your hearts. Praying to Him for change in her country and the hearts of those making decisions. May all the paperwork be perfect and convincing! Amen.
