Finally-- an update for you!

Well, it's been a while again. We've been very busy following our boys in basketball and lovin' every minute of it!!! It's good to be busy. It takes our minds off of our adoption process that can be all consuming if you allow it to.

We have heard "rumors" that, although the wait is uncertain at this time, it could be four years before we are united with our precious gift from God. I got really upset and discouraged about this at first. I began to feel overwhelmed and unsure of where we were heading, where God was leading us, etc. I realized that God was drawing me closer to Him. He was asking me to trust Him on this uncertain, but amazing journey. He was asking me to dig into his word and see how he'd been so faithful to SO MANY of His followers. He promises me that He will NEVER leave me nor forsake me, He will deliver me from my fears, that He is in Control, and that he wants to give me the desires of my heart! God is so good. Praise be to Him!! He has blessed me with MANY friends to help comfort me and remind me to take my cares and cast them on HIM.

Therefore, we are in it for the long haul. Wherever this journey leads us, we're on it and sticking with it. We're praying for our precious daughter that will be waiting for us. We ask you to pray for our family and for Lily. Pray for other families who are on this journey with us! Our God is a God of Miracles! He can do anything! If we must be patient, we'll TRY.

Praise to the Lord, for He is good. His love endures forever!!!
