Is there a baby under all that paper?

This summer has been such a whirlwind of paperwork, appointments, and payments that we often have to stop and focus on the fact that God has another child for us!

In addition to praying for trivial papers that we're dealing with, we must remember to pray...

  • That our child will have the food, medicine, and love that he needs to grow healthy and strong.
  • For his parents and family that are mourning the loss of this precious little one from their lives, for the hardships that they're enduring, and that they will know God and experience His love and comfort.
  • For the nannies and orphanage workers who are caring for him -that they will be blessed.
Each time somebody from our agency shares the wonderful news of a referral, has a court date, and shares a photograph, our hearts swell with the excitement to see these families finding the children that God has for them, and we REMEMBER that someday, eventually we'll be there too!

It will be such a joyful and surreal experience for us to travel to Ethiopia, AFRICA to meet our son! (There will be much prayer for that part later!!!!)

What a beautiful post! Thank you for the reminder that our focus should be on doing God's will and more than anything we should handle this process with prayer.
