Prayers Please!!

I am going to ask you all to be in prayer for us tonight and over the next few days. I received a very disheartening email from Holt today (actually 30 min. ago) - it was sent out to all families in the process. The gov't there is making MAJOR changes. I don't like some of them at all. I know without a doubt that God led us here and that He will see us through but we have some major decisions to make. Do we stay with Holt? Do we stay with Ethiopia? Do we change to Uganda? Do we sit on this paperwork and wait a week or 2 to see what the new developments are? I am just being wide open with you, my blog followers. The truth, I just want the child God has for us, but finding it MAY be a little harder to do than I thought. I will keep you posted.

It is so hard to discern whether this is a bump in the road or a U turn sign heading us in another direction. What I do know is God has a child for us in Africa.

Following HARD after HIM!!!!

"I will praise the Lord, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me...As for God, his way is perfect...Show me your ways, O Lord, teach me your paths...I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you...Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, 'This is the way; walk in it.'" Praying for wisdom and discernment--and peace for your heart. Love you.

I am praying for you! We are facing the same decision and some other bumps in our early adoption road. Thank you for your openness :-) And thank you, Karen, for the scripture!

Ugh! So hard to know. I do know that international adoption is a journey filled with twists and turns. What are the major changes that Holt is speaking of? We are hopefully heading to Ethiopia in 2 weeks to bring our 2 kiddos home! Praying for peace and for discernment as to where God would have you to be!

Hey, girl. Read this on and the most recent one. Glad the Lord has proven faithful once again as you guys have prayed through these last few days. He is always sufficient.
