A Week of Prayers
We always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our prayers. We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.
For we know, brothers and sisters loved by God, that he has chosen you, because our gospel came to you not simply with words but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and deep conviction. You know how we lived among you for your sake. You became imitators of us and of the Lord, for you welcomed the message in the midst of severe suffering with the joy given by the Holy Spirit. 1 Thessalonians 1-6
These verses speak to me tonight! Our Agency is really on my mind and the decisions they make in our Family's lives! I am honestly amazed how our little Brody fits in our Family! Brody is the most easy going, content baby I have ever been blessed to raise! We are trying to get answers from our Agency regarding Marcus...No answers... We get very vague answers back, none regarding the health or care of Marcus. We just read that since we adopted domestically, we are in question of adopting Marcus. We where told that when/if we where chosen domestically, we had to make a choice, Marcus or the Baby. Mark and I said we could not do that. It would have to be the government of Liberia that would have to terminate our adoption! Mark, I and the Director made the agreement that we would continue to keep the paper work up to date in Liberia, and continue with a domestic adoption. Than if the time came, we would have a updated home study or recommendation from our Social Worker(s)!
Honestly I think we should just let God take the wheel, and see what He can do! Why would 1 person have to stand in the way of paper work that is completed, and the Liberian Government? After all it is all in His time! I think I would be more at ease of waiting, and not getting updates if we didn't have so much (yep gonna say it) money involved.
God Blessed us with Brody, and 4 amazing children! God worked that out way beyond my prayers and dreams!
