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.
It's been a while since my last post. We are doing well. Very well. Today is the anniversary of our homecoming. It's hard to believe that a whole year has past! We are so comfortable and such a family. Just when I stop to think about the enormity of it all, life happens and I am sucked back into the daily stuff: Homework, hair, library, brushing teeth, making dinner, doing more homework... You get the picture. Speaking of pictures.... I will attach a few more... Can I say - as you view these.... WE ARE SOOOO READY FOR SUMMER!
