Hello everyone! I am getting quite impatient. I don't want to be , I just am. It is so hard to wait on the Lord's timing sometimes even though His timing is ALWAYS best, I should know that by now! My Mom got her second CIS fingerprints done on June 6th and we still have not heard anything from them. Last time I think it only took about a week and a half before we got the prints back. That is the last thing we need and we will be done with our dossier! Almost there! So everyday the twins and I run to the mailbox to see if there is anything from CIS and nothing so far. But it will come when the Lord sees fit to send it. I think He is trying to teach me a thing or two about being patient and boy do I need to learn about that!
Oh! My parents went to an Ethiopian restaraunt today and they loved it! They even brought home some food for us to try. Let's just say I am not a fan of the Injera! Also I found this adorable picture of Jeremiah today and thought I would post it. ~ A bit of silliness~
I love Jesus Christ with all my heart. For reasons that I will never understand, He died to save me from my sins. I love Him because He first loved me. He says in Matthew 25:40 that He is "the least of these." He is the orphan and the widow and the poor and the hungry. I love Him and want to serve Him through serving the least.I have 8 siblings; 2 biological, 5 adopted, and one "unofficially adopted". Adoption has opened my eyes and changed my heart forever.
I have a new passion and what I have seen has broken me and changed my heart.
This started out as a journal of my trip to Ethiopia to bring home my 3 newest siblings but it has turned into much more. God has started me and my family on a whole new journey and it's crazy, exciting, hard and just plain God. Since we started adopting 6 years ago, God has taken me to Africa, China and Guatemala to care for and visit orphans. God has taught me so much through serving them and getting to know them and I hope to be able to give as much to them as they have to me.
