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!

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.

Update and More Waiting!

Well, as promised, when I had some answers I would let you all know! After much prayer, thought and talking with various people in the "adoption world" (pediatricians who specialize in adoption, my social worker and the International program director for my agency) I have decided to WAIT a little bit longer! My agency is trying to work some things out with the Peruvian government to help expedite the process and to also get more children into loving homes. PLEASE PRAY for this meeting over the next several weeks. The meeting is hoped to happen for about 3-4 weeks from now. PLEASE pray that the Lord will cause the Peruvian government to find favor with our agency and above all for the many children who need a loving home! For right now, I have taken some steps on both paths that I mentioned in the last blog post, but what seems best to me right now is to WAIT! (Can you believe that, I am WILLING to WAIT!-- NOT like me at ALL!-- Must be GOD!) But, I think it best to wait until after our agency's meeting to see before I go any farther down either of the paths. Again, PLEASE just PRAY, PRAY, PRAY that God's will be done and that the Peruvian Government will find favor with my agency! Blessings to all of you, and THANK YOU for the prayers!! I probably won't have much to update until after our agency's meeting in Peru.... but I PROMISE, I will keep you all posted!

"Therefore the Lord is waiting to show you mercy, and is rising up to show you compassion, for the Lord is a just God. Happy are all who wait patiently for Him." -Isaiah 30:18
