Adoption Update --
Today the day we have been waiting for came!!! We were officially "approved". Our agency has received all of the necessary reports and information. Our adoptive study has been completed and final approval has been given of our family for adoption through Christian Homes!!! Praise you Jesus!! We serve a MIGHTY God!! Some things to pray for: The birthmother...wherever she may be just pray that God blesses her. What an incredible sacrifice she is making! I can not wait to meet her and thank her, hopefully, in person. Pray that God puts it on her heart to choose us. Pray for our baby, that it is most importantly, HEALTHY! We know that is the baby that God has chose for us. He knew even before we began this journey who our baby would be. Only He knows if it's a boy or girl....wow, I wish I knew! And only He knows what he/she will look like. Pray for the sweet people at Christian Homes they have been such an easy group to work with. Specifically, Margaret & Cindy...they have been instrumental in this adoption and so helpful to us. We are a little concerned with lodging while we are in Texas.....pray our God provides for us in that aspect. If we have to stay for anymore than a week a hotel is going to get VERY spendy...well...even a week will be spendy. We have had offers from three families to stay with them. But...Texas is a BIG state and who knows where we will be. Pray that our baby is born near one of those homes....that would be a miracle! We know God works in miracles...so, let's see one!! Lastly, pray for us! This is a HUGE, gigantic leap of faith for us. We have received funds for a portion of our fees, but...not all. We know our God knows our needs. We're getting anxious, excited and just so happy! We can't wait to meet the newest member of our family!!!
