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."

Our Leap of Faith

Deciding to adoption has been a huge leap of faith for our family, but something we also feel strongly the Lord wants us to do.

“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”
James 1:27

There are days we wonder, how will this be possible? Days when ideas run constantly through my head in hopes they will bring in the money needed for the adoption fees. Days I'm praying constantly.
But, at the end of the day we trust God will provide and of course we are working very hard on our part.

“A man makes a plan in his heart, but God directs his path.”
Proverbs 16:9

Please continue to pray for our family and for our future daughter.
The feeling is indescribable when we think about she might be out there waiting for us, or maybe she isn't even born yet. Which ever it may be, please also add her to your prayers. That she is being taken care of, being held and is safe until she comes home to us.
“Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power at work in us, to Him be the glory.”
Ephesians 3:20

At this time we are in one of the "waiting periods". We have submitted all the information needed at this time, requested Ethiopia as our country of choice and are now waiting for our agency to tell us we can proceed to the next step.
