Three years ago today I brought the Wee Boy home from Ethiopia. He is such an amazing little guy and I can't imagine not having him in my life. Actually, it's hard to think of a time when he hasn't been here in our family.
As we were looking through the pictures of that blessed day my mind and my heart keep returning to the children we met in the orphanages on our pick up trip. I know some of them have come home, but others I will always wonder about. Did they find their place in their forever home? I worry that some may still be waiting and... I think about the many more children who have entered into orphanage care these past three years.
There have been so many changes in international adoption since we began our first adoptions seven years ago. It seem as if new obstacles and roadblocks are the only constant in the international adoption process. Countries change rules seemingly on a whim which can make a long hard process longer and harder. I know so many right now who are caught up in the throes and the anxiety of the process. The process can be grueling and it can seem so hopeless. I just want to encourage you not to give up. God will make a way. Follow the path He has set before you and trust even when things seem impossible. It is so worth it !
Please leave a comment if you are in the process of adoption either international or domestic and have a prayer need. I know there are other prayer warriors who read here who will pray as well. You can be anonymous if you wish. I would really like to lift up you and your children. God is more than able to move mountains and soften the hardest of bureaucratic hearts.
For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. Matthew 18:20~
