Okay, it's been a few weeks since we asked for prayer about what our next step would be in the adoption process. Shortly after asking for prayer, the LORD hammered us with videos and devotions and other "things" that made our decision "easy"....Ethiopia it is!!!!!:)
The need is great and we just can't turn our backs on them. Their are 4 million orphans in Ethiopia alone! So, we can stick our head in the sand, be our own "boss" and say, "Nope, we're done", OR we can GO and let God use us in the lives of another child....Ummmm, no-brainer there folks!!!
So we are about finished updating our homestudy and hope to sign on with WACAP in the spring. We are requesting(at this point) a little girl, 0-12mos, "healthy"(although we all know these kiddos are rarely healthy). Our homestudy will state "boy or girl"..just in case:). We believe keeping birth order is important for our family, so that's one reason we requested the youngest possible age.
And it's funny because we have already had attacks from the enemy! He doesn't waste time does he;)? We had our car break down, and our well pump went out...I was donating plasma and got deferred for a lab mix-up, etc.....BUT GOD!
We really could care less what people "think" of us adopting again...but more on that in another post..:)
We just keep smiling, knowing that HE is our provider and we can't wait to begin this journey! We hope you will continue to pray and support us on this new journey to our child, and may HE be glorified through it all!
These are the videos that the Lord used to really show us that Ethiopia is where we need to be...one came to us FIVE times in one day through blogs and emails...!!!! Please watch and maybe you too will be moved to bring one of these forgotten ones home!
