YESTERDAY was Mother’s Day.
It was difficult for my heart NOT to think on and pray for the mother of our little girl. We still don’t know who our daughter is, whether she has even been born yet or what she is or will go through before we are able to bring her home, but we do know that her mother will have to make one of the most difficult decisions of her life…to give her child to another family to love and raise. I can’t even begin to imagine how difficult that decision will be for her, my heart cries for her, and we will be eternally grateful for the sacrificial decision she is making. We will be forever grateful that she chose LIFE!
TOMORROW night we have our first Home Visit.
If we haven’t already felt like our lives have been on display with every financial, medical, psychological, spiritual detail written down in extreme detail to be scrutinized, notarized and critiqued, we definitely will feel the weight of it tomorrow when our home and family are evaluated in person by a social worker. Would you please pray for us? This journey God has us on has taught us so much about trusting Him even more, knowing that none of this would be possible without His strength, wisdom and direction leading us! We are just so excited to be at this point! This appointment means that at least 90% of our Home Study paperwork is complete (approximately one ream of paper worth of paperwork). We still have at least one more ream of paperwork to finish for the Indian government, but thinking about that too much can put me in a mild state of panic. So, we are taking one second at a time, in God’s grace, in His strength and to His glory!
Thank you for your prayers!
