You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart.
You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.
You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.
You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

Woo hoo!!!!

God is GREAT!!

Got our 'official' approval from Three Angels this morning.....we are adopting Steeve & Jean Baptiste.....WOOHOO!

We are so excited-we can barely stand it! LOL

This is just the very first step in what promises to be an adventure and growing season. We trust God to provide and guide our steps and all the paperwork through from start to finish.

Please pray for the boys-they will be told about their previous adoptive family not working out on Saturday, in person. Gretchen and the previous adoptive mom will both be there, and they will have pictures of us with them. I pray that God will protect their little hearts and that they will fully understand that we are their forever family and that we love them very much. Please pray for wisdom for the adults in how/what/when/where to tell the boys and help them all grieve and express themselves.

God's hands are all over this and we are awed to play a part in God's plan. Wow. Amazing. Hard to believe. Wow.
