This blog is a small peek inside our family's first adventure into the world of adoption. We welcome your encouragement & financial support, but most importantly we appreciate your prayer covering as we climb the mountains & wander the valleys of this incredibly crazy, yet exciting journey God is leading our family on. We also ask for your prayer covering over our new children, wherever & whoever they are, that they will sense God's loving presence as He snuggles them for us, & for protection from satan's evil schemes toward each of us. Though we may be on opposite sides of the globe, or just a few miles apart, we trust God has already been preparing all of us for each other as our family grows again. May all the Glory in this journey go to our Heavenly Father, who adopted each of us as His own beloved sons & daughters.

What Are Your Objections?
Wow! We sure can relate to what this gentleman is saying. We could have made a long list of all the obstacles and objections that applied in our family's situation on why it would make all earthly sense to wait to adopt until our biological children were much older. All of our previous objections to adoption were based on our comfort level desires, but that has all changed since God opened our eyes to the way He sees things. In opening our eyes, He enlarged our hearts as well. All objections to adoption are removed when we say "Your will be done Lord, not ours" and trust Him fully to plan, prepare for, provide for, and protect us on the path in which He asks us to follow Him on. We are thankful for the stretching He has been doing in our family's heart!
