Adoption Update # 3

chair

Baby – we started painting your room last night. The little rocker in your room used to belong to me; it used to be avocado green, which was so hip in the 70‘s. Your dad painted it yellow for you. The walls are a cozy gray and one is filled with chevrons – thank your dad for that! We can’t wait to rock you to sleep, tell you stories, make shadow puppets with the night light, and fill your heart with truth about God in this room. We have so many good things to tell you about Him. We are praying for you everyday. You will know that this is home the minute we take you into our arms.

Aaron and I are doing all we can to get ready for the phone call we are waiting for–that a family has chosen us! That call could come any time, so we are busy getting the basics together and concentrating on the fundraising. $22,000 is a lot of money to us! We have already saved and payed close to $6,000, so only $16,000 to go! God knows. I really don’t know how people who don’t submit their lives to God’s guidance live…without my trust in His provision, His wisdom, and His timing, I would be a total mess!

Aaron put up five additional teachings of mine in the store portion of our website. We invite you to check them out!

Adoption Update # 2

Baby – 

2013 may very well be your year!  We are praying for you.  We pray that as you form and develop, you would sense our prayers and come to know our voices, our hearts, our love…so that when you are placed in our arms it will be home.  Grow strong and be safe.  We love you.  

Our profile is done!  Aaron is going to put it here some way so that you can take a look at it…please don’t think we think we are all that!  It was very odd to make a book filled with words and pictures about ourselves, but we were motivated by thinking of the birth family who will be looking at it and trying so desperately to read between the lines and connect with a family that will raise their beloved child.  We are humbled by the powerful kind of love that would carry a child to term and look to release them to another family who is at a place where they can provide in a different way for this cherished child.  That takes wisdom, courage and humility.  Birth family – we so respect you.  We pray often that we will also have the wisdom, courage, and humility it will take to raise this cherished child.  I know God will help us all.
