Orphan Sunday November 6th

Samuel ..adopted August 2011 14 years young

We didnt post on November 6th which is a special day to many of us who have a heart for those without families. It is Orphan Sunday.
Our son is no longer an orphan.
 Its not because we are good or have spare cash lying around and a desire to be "noticed" that we adopted Samuel. Its so much more than all of those things. I will say that the end result of adopting in glorifying my first love Christ is a hope and a dream on our part and the sole aim of opening up our lives on this blog. Even now Marcos and I feel God's tug on our hearts to encourage more, risk more and expect more to Gorify God even more! Adoption is indeed a leap of Faith and even on our first Family vacation we could see evidence of how God really works miracles in adoption! We want to encourage you to begin and pray about adoptiong a child, even an older child.
My heart bursts with joy when I think about how Blessed you would be if you only took this leap of Faith and trusted God with your next or first son or daughter!
Maybe my words mean nothing and are like dry bones today but I will let the following pictures, God's Holy word and the Holy Spirit sink in to the heart that has already drawn you into this blog. Go ahead and click on them..they get big enough to see the twinkle and tangible joy in our sweet son's smile! Praise be to the Father who adopted us ALL!

Psalms 68:5
Father of Orphans,champion of widows, is God in His Holy house.
