Once upon a time....

Flash back to 1999, we were a family of four. Happy in our new roomy house and comfortable in our ways. A few years later, the Lord blessed us with an additional little package, little boy #3. Now we were a family of five and sure that would be the end. As time moved on, so did we. The Lord used the time that passed to open our eyes to His will. Several years ago, Bob and I individually heard the call to adoption. It has been a long "pregnancy", but during this incubation time, the Lord has brought us to where He wants us to be. Spring 2010, we traveled to Ethiopia where two little angels were waiting for the Lord's timing - to become our children. Now we are home and can't imagine life any differently! What a blessing to be in His will.

Galatians 4:5 says "God sent Christ to buy freedom for us, who were slaves to the law, so that He could adopt us as his very own children." We are just following his model. A Perfect picture of salvation.

On the Road Again...

It has been so long since I blogged - is that a word? We are still in the adoption arena or so it seems. I think that God has been waiting patiently for us to come around. His will is still active and we were the ones that were blind to His intent for us. However, we believe that we are now attentive and following His lead in this adventure. We are pursuing his call to adoption - through Children's Hope International - THIS WEEK. The following postings will chronicle our journey. I really don't want to forget one single piece of this puzzle, so bear with me as I ramble. I am full up with JOY!
