On the Journey With My Chosen One!

I am sure you might wonder why I call her chosen rather than adopted.... well, adopted is just her physical condition, CHOSEN is what we both are to be a family together! God is so rich in His Blessings, and He has chosen each of us from before the time we were knit in our mother's womb to be a FOREVER family! How BIG is that? How BIG is our God!?! Thank you for following our journey and for praying for us as we wait and continue to grow in the love of God! -- Blessings!

Liliana's Verses

Matthew 17:20 - " ... For truly I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain: "Move from here to there", and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you."

Zephaniah 3:17 - The Lord your God is with you. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.

Proverbs 3:5-6 ~ Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths.

Jeremiah 29:11 ~ For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for wholeness and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

YAY! I literally just got an e-mail from my social worker saying that I am approved by the Peruvian Governemnt to adopt! :-) But, let me tell you this story.... it is pretty neat how it unfolded.... I was online checking e-mail and my social worker e-mailed me to let me know she would be out of country for the next week and a half and who I should contact if I needed anything. So, I e-mailed her back and of course wished her well and let her know that I was good, except I was anxiously awaiting the approval from the Peruvian Governemnt. Before she could even respond to my e-mail, within seconds, she received an e-mail from Peru stating that I HAVE BEEN APPROVED! Now, let me just tell you, that is a Good God! :-) I had mentioned to her that God was teaching me about waiting (which, as most of you know, I am NOT good at!) and a couple of days ago, I was just having an anxious day of wanting to know my approval status.... well the devotion for that day was about WAITING! You have to love it when God is funny, yet gives us just what we need, when we need it! Well, that is what happened tonight! :-) How cool is that?!?

Thank you all for continuing to pray. Please also pray for Allison (my social worker, as she travels this week) and for the referral process as it is the next step! I will continue to update as soon as I know something more!
