We must be doing something right.
We are in a battle for our sons life to put it lightly. A few days ago we, as well as Jaime and Amy received news that the region we are all adopting from has now gone up to 4 trips and the cost has now moved up to $40,000.00+. Oh and on top of that they are asking that there not be any more than 5 kids at home. Well I was assured by our agency that that is just a preference. Lol, I mean seriously that's all I can do is laugh and throw my hands in the air and say God I give this all to you. There is a spiritual warfare going on and I am encouraged that we are doing something right and are walking the path God has set before us because the enemy is fighting against us big time. he does not want these children to be rescued...you know why? Because love is contagious! Love a.k.a Jesus Christ will show people that these children have value and that someone wants them. And they will start to question things. I believe with my whole heart that God is using all these adoptions to plant seeds. Whether it be in the judge's hearts, the country finally starting to see that these children have worth and can be apart of society or other people following these children's stories and gathering up the courage to start a journey of their own. Either way love is spreading and you can't help but catch it. From the beginning when we started this adoption we wanted first and foremost to glorify God and that is still our desire above all else. To be obedient no matter the outcome. I admit I am feeling beat down but not broken, and in no way am I giving up. I just want to be honest throughout this process, to share the ups and downs. Because when it's all said and done the ending will be so much sweeter and the joy overflowing when we look back and see how He carried us through it all. Baby boy WE ARE COMING!!!
