Our Journey

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.

Newer News

I awoke early this morning to an email update on our youngest daughter, Aliza, and her pending transfer to the mental institution that we blogged about yesterday. Rather than sorting through the information in her email, I'll just repeat what Natalie has posted as an update in her blog at this point.


Update on Molly/Aliza

Life in this country is like playing a giant game of telephone... only you don't know who started the game. I have heard three different things from three different people. I do know this much: Aliza is loved and cherished at this orphanage. This orphanage does NOT want her transferred. I am almost certain that the only way she will be transferred is if they are required by the government to transfer her. We must pray, pray, pray that this will not occur. I feel so much happier, and so much more hopeful today. I am SO thankful for all the prayers, spreading the word, and the support for her family, who are in a race against time to protect her from the horrors of a laying room. I am so happy to see people rallying around them and showing them how loved their little angel is from around the world!
So there you have it. It appears that prayers are already being answered for favor on Aliza's behalf. The focus of our prayer request yesterday was for Aliza, but Olivia is not out of her own risk of transfer. Because she is older than Aliza, her risk of transfer to another facility also increases with each passing month, although she is not likely to be sent to a "laying room" because she is physically mobile on her own. It's still a race against time for both girls. But God... Please continue to pray that transfer will be delayed for both girls until we arrive to bring Aliza and Olivia home. Our desire is that their only transfer is from their respective orphanages to our home. And God can make a way even when it seems impossible. He specializes in the impossible. I think it puts a smile on His face to say "See what I just did!"

Update: Because both "Olivia" and "Aliza" are no longer available for adoption, we felt it was best to remove the photos we had posted of them from our blog.
