And now we are 11
Thanks for your prayers. We just arrived home an hour ago. It was a long day but a joyful one. All nine children are tucked in for the night. The sleeping arangements are, 4 girls in one bedroom, four boys in another bedroom and the newest in a bed next to mommy and daddy. We know that the road ahead will be walked with a cross--"take up your cross and follow Me." And along the journey we wait expectantly to see the Lord Heal and Redeem. A specific prayer request at this point is for all confusion to be removed--a small little detail, well, a HUGE detail is that this child comes from a "disrupted adoption." A word that tares at my heart. Why? Because I believe that earlthy adoption is an absolutely beautiful picture of our heavenly adoption, and God promises "to never leave us nor forsake us."
