Thanksgiving


  Its so cold outside and as we fall into this winter chill I am so thankful for God's warmth. In all things and especially adoption we are solely dependent on our great creator. So many of our friends are adopting and its so awesome to enjoy each step closer that they get to bringing home the sweet little and bigger ones God has planned for them!  

      Please don't forget to pray for everyone in the process and that all the kiddos will soon find families! Adoption is at the heart of Jesus and its such an honor to be apart of it. We hope and pray that God will move us even sooner to adopt too! Samuel prays for a sister but also grins ear to ear at having us all to himself for now!

    We have been very busy with The Barros Academy and I just might dare to say that as one year flew by Home school is still a great Blessing! Samuel has also been taking a class outside of my teaching skills and admires and loves his teacher. Our God is so good to us in His provision of everything and I love my student!

   
   As Thanksgiving approaches ...where do I begin? I'm thankful for so much. 

Thank you God for trusting us with Samuel to raise in your honor, as he is yours and we are ever grateful for our arrow...

Thank You Grandpa for giving your life to give Marcos and I a son and Samuel a family ... 

Thank You Mom and Dad for telling me about Jesus and showing Samuel God's unconditional love...

Thank You Emmy and Amy for loving me from a distance when I am the only one who moved away and you still remain as close to me as ever...

Thank You Alanson for raising your kids in fear and admonition of the Lord so we could learn from you and Emmy how to raise ours...

Thank You Chris for fishing with Samuel and loving him the first day you met him as if you were there the day he was born...what genuine love....

Thank You Marcos for being my best friend all day and every day......

Thank You Samuel for making me a Mom......
