Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? -Matthew 6:26

As we walk through this adventure called life, we remind ourselves that we are all precious children of our Father-- those of us who have walked a little further down the road striving to guide those who have been entrusted to our care for a time. Here is our journey down this path.

It's HER!!!!!

We found our daughter and little sister! After much prayer and discussion--between Jeff and I, and several physicians discussing the medical issues, we have found her! We are so excited and today has only served to confirm our thoughts. We called the adoption agency last night to lock her file. At that point, a 48 hour clock starts to tick, during which we have to submit a 'Letter of Intent' and several other documents. We have just completed the letter and will be sending the 'Agreement' in the morning! So, unless there is a major change, she is ours!
We, of course, want to leave tomorrow to go get her, but there is still quite a process to go through, so it will likely be another 6 months until we are able to travel. We can't wait to have her in our arms--I think this is going to be the most difficult part of the waiting!

I really want to tell you all about her, but at this point, she still isn't 'ours' to send out information or pictures. I will do that as soon as I can. For now--just know that she is beautiful and she is perfect! And that our good God had her planned for us all along is such a sweet thought!

More to come soon!

Please pray

Hi all--we have been presented with a little girl to consider--please pray for wisdom and discernment and that it would be clear if this is our 'baby sister' or not!
