|Mao Mao and Max dance. Her feet are straight that were once crooked and her heart fiercely in love with the Lord. How great is our God!|
There is a chance of snow today here in the midwest. Need I say more? Just like our beautiful tulip flowers,daffodils, and various other bulbs struggle to break through and see sunlight so our adoption feels similar. Either way we pray harder, speak with authority and work diligently in what this whole process delivers and demands.
Thank you for your prayers.
Please don't let up now and remember our son who still waits with no news from all the people that promised him a family but fail yet to produce it. Pray for the people being pushed and pulled by the authorities for documents. We find even those we go to for help loosing patience with us and delegating blame for simple miscommunications. The water is a bit rough but the good thing is we Trust soon that Jesus will calm this storm and see through another miracle as He has always Faithfully done in our lives. We can also see our son coming home and surrounded by family that loves him. I would be dishonest to the many friends that I encourage to adopt if I didn't write these posts. Your Faith will grow and your relationship with Jesus will strengthen and isn't that one of the greatest gifts of struggle? Our utter dependence on God and knowing that when this adoption is accomplished we can say ONLY God made it happen!
Romans 5:3-5 (New International Version, ©2011)
3 Not only so, but we[a] also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.
Anticipating a great miracle,
Marcos, Jamie and soon our son
