Bigger Picture

The last few days have been difficult.  Hard.  Our family is under heavy spiritual attack. God has asked us to step out in faith.  Again.  What option do we have?  None because we love Him so intensely.   We are excited about the journey in front of us.  At times like this, though, the enemy decides to go into overtime.  He is working nonstop to deter us.  And the hardest part?  Watching my babies be under attack.  We are speaking truth and love into their hearts, encouraging them to lean upon HIM as He will never leave them nor forsake them.  He will stand beside them no matter what. What a beautiful adventure awaits us all!!!

On adoption news, we are still waiting for our I600 approval from the US Embassy in Ghana.  We are reminded God has perfect, incredible timing. This precious face reminds me daily.

It is still hard and my heart aches to have them here.

And this sweet boy is having a birthday in February.  By only a miracle from our God, he could be home for his 8th birthday.  Pray with us, will you?

One more favor.  Please join us in praying for our dear sweet friends who have been waiting so long that my heart hurts for them.  They are waiting for a court date, for court decrees, for I600 approvals (with us).  Please, please pray with us for these precious children who long to be with their forever families.  Pray for mommies and daddies whose arms are empty and aching.  Pray for brothers and sisters to understand God's perfect love in their wait.
