Here it is.

Are you ready?


We have joyfully accepted a referral for a beautiful 15 month old baby girl from the DRC!!

People, she’s so precious.  Oh how I wish I could post a picture of her sweet face with those big, brown eyes but, alas, I cannot.  BUT if you are local, you can count on me having a picture to share with you whether you care to see it or not.  Heck, I have been tempted to share our news with complete strangers.  I just can’t contain myself.

This journey has not been without its fair share of twists and turns.  But God is faithful.  And so good.  This week alone, I have been absolutely floored to watch God’s plan for this baby girl and our family unfold.  And we continue to stand watch, waiting with expectation as the rest of the story unfolds as we wait to bring her h.o.m.e.

More details to come!  Pinky promise! 

“The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.” Psalm 126:3

I have been having a bad day, things not going right, my stress level (home selling, single parenting, etc) through the roof….and I read this, and it reminds me that GOD IS GOOD and that all things happen in HIS time, not our time.
