A Little Discouraged....

It has been a while since I have written an update, unfortunately because we haven't had much to update on our adoption. For us personally we are in the most difficult place we have been in since we began this wild journey 19 months ago! We still feel confident this is the road the Lord has put us on, still see our boys child-like faith where they never go a day without praying for sister yet never doubt if she will ever enter our family, still have a longing that goes DEEP (deeper than I ever dreamed I would feel just being in process) and a strong connection to a baby girl that may not even be born yet. We trust God's timing and purpose in this, we really do, but we would love anyone to join us in praying for movement in Ethiopia!! Please pray for the children who are waiting for their forever family that they would feel God's loving arms and have a great awareness of His presence in the midst of their loneliness. And please pray for us that we would not lose sight and continue to wait with hope! A quote we recently heard says, "Our willingness to wait reveals the value we place on the object we're waiting for." -Charles Stanley We know she will be worth the wait and can't wait to share the Lord's goodness with her one day!


  1. The Stirling's are praying over her, and over you guys as her family. We love you. May you feel God's presence in a very tangible way as you "wait" and feel the heaviness of only something God knows the timing of. Our hearts are with you all.

  2. I was so excited to see your post pop up on FB last week. I've added you to my blog roll & will check back often. Praying for the process to hurry up for you guys!
