Clarity

Our meeting with the pediatrician was great.  He shed light on so many little and big questions that we had.   We felt like it was very clear which boy was to be ours by the end of that meeting.  This clarity is a huge answer to prayer!   And since then it has been even more confirmed in our hearts!   This boy is precious and amazing!!  We can’t wait to share details with you.  In the meantime, we do have a few prayer requests:
  • The one step left to be sure he is ours is for China to accept us.  Please pray that our documents get to China safely and that they approve us.
  •  Pray for our son.  We can’t share details yet, but just pray for him.  And praise God for how we can see He has already been at work in his life.
Praise God from whom all blessings flow!!  We are excited!!

Regarding the other precious boy:
I don’t know why God made our adoption process go this way – where we would have to choose between two beautiful sweet boys.  It is a gut-wrenching, heart-breaking, devastating thing to have to do.…. but I know there are reasons that He brought the other boy into our lives.  I want him adopted.  I want him in a family.  The reality is that I will probably never know what happens to him and as much as that hurts, I know it is part of the story God is writing.   I have heard that the hardest part of picking up your child from their orphanage is seeing all of the other kids you are leaving behind.  It is not how it should be and every fiber in you wants to grab an armful of children to bring home.   If you are reading this, will you please pray with me that this boy will be adopted?  Pray that this specific boy would be brought into the loving hands of a mommy and a daddy.  Maybe one of the reasons he was brought into our lives is so that we could ask you to pray… and then God might act mightily from that.
