Letter Of Acceptance (LOA) On Its Way !!!

UPS arrived at 9:00 and Maggie's letter was signed, checked, dated, and FED EXPRESSED by 10:45. I just want to take a moment to pray over everyone's paperwork. The adoption paper chase is hard, confusing, constantly changing, and always seems to be in this mystery vacuum of where anything is at anytime. I know it is scary, frustrating, and at times all consuming. SO ...

Lord Jesus, grant us peace in the midst of the winds that blow. We know your mercys are new each day and we ask you to shower us with your strength and help us to realize your presence in our everyday moments. I know you care about our paper work, you care about our hurts, you rejoice with us, and you hold us close when we cry. You were there when our children were abandoned and you will be with them till the end of time. Please shower our birth mothers with hope and love. Continue to love us as only you do. Amen....

Love You All !!!

Congrats on your LOA! Our God is so big, we have to try to remember that even when things aren't going according to our plan. His plan is always better. Are you still going to send Maggie her package?

Have you heard the story about Joey? He was burned and is waiting in China for a family...but no one is interested in him. His file is going back soon....Pray for him!

Yippee!

Your prayer was fabulous this morning and brought tears once again to my eyes.

I have found myself thinking of AMOS all day long and sometimes with great sadness and sometimes with great joy.

Thanks for the encouragement!

Thank you so much for your prayer. I really need it right now. The arrival of LOAs is so random to us, but not to our God. We must take the peace offered to us in that knowledge. I'm so happy for you guys!
