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.

Deuteronomy 6:5-9

It Came!!!!

In case you can't read the text of the image above, this is what the highlighted part says:

"The Court certifed you on January 9, 2009 as acceptable to adopt in the State of Arizona."


It's been a long time coming, and we're grateful to have all these documents with that one very important sentence on them. Now, it feels like we are moving forward in our Adoption Adventure.

Praying that it all comes together, so we can have the appointment in Haiti that starts that long, slow, confusing, side of the process soooooon. Every check mark on this list gets us that much closer.......

Praising God for all He's done so far, and all He will do in this. We often refer to the boys as 'our boys'. But truth be told, we are fully aware that these boys belong to God. They are His first. We are blessed to be chosen to play a role in their life stories. And we can't wait. Yet, we will wait, because we understand that God is in control.

Jeremiah 29:11(NIV) keeps coming to mind, recently:

"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Praise God from Whom ALL Blessings Flow....
