Praying, seeking, asking, discussing. Searching for answers that seem so big, and yet may be so simple. This is someone’s life we’re talking about. Uprooting a little child from all they’ve ever known to start them over a world away in what we believe will be a life that will offer them much love and hope. That’s a pretty big deal. It’s a position we want to know God wants us in, and know we are going about it in the way He has for us. We see Him daily in the little things; that’s how we know His hand is in the big things too.
Mark and I talk. We plan, we dream, we wonder, we read. We see so many choices and pathways out there in regards to adoption, and we know we must wade through it all and come out the other side with a reasonable plan. God has been whispering to our hearts…
We want to adopt an older child, past the infant stage, and are going to submit a package for special needs, which could range from anything such as skin discolorations, or major heart or limb defects. God has enabled us to provide, and we are choosing to trust Him to show us what needs we can best meet.
Life is a mysterious and thrilling adventure for us that has brought us to many challenges we are humbled to say we have made it through. Each new step brings us closer together as we revel in the excitement of what we have been ordained for.
