So while I still can't make our official announcement, things are more official than they were a few days ago. I can't wait to tell the whole story, but right now I'm just going to ask for prayer. We have to be further in the paper process before I can officially announce who we are adopting, his name, and where he is currently located. UGH! While I am frustrated about that part, I am daily encouraged and motivated by the way that God is throwing open door left and right. Every time we hit a barrier, we pray, and almost immediately the Lord has torn it down so we can move right through. It has been supernatural the way God has been working on our(and our son's) behalf. Please continue to be in prayer that the process will continue to go quickly and smoothly. I cannot even began to stress how important time is right now. Time is the one thing our son does NOT have right now. Pray for tender hearts at the orphanage where he is located. Pray that they will have enough information from us to trust that we are coming and that they will not transfer him elsewhere. I'll update soon and with as many details as I am allowed. For now, check out this and this, and then come back and tell me how awesome that is?! There are angels from heaven that have been earnestly interceeding for our child, before we even knew he existed. Very moving, to say the least.
Oh, and we decided to adopt "D" before we knew about the fundrasing efforts on his behalf. THAT is how God works. First, you choose to trust him and obey, and then He shows you how he has been waiting to carry you as long as you were willing to take that first step of faith. God is so good.
