  He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;

    I will be exalted among the nations,
    I will be exalted in the earth.” 
Psalm 46:10

I have always loved this scripture, but in 2012 I have learned to "be still" in new and different ways! 

The New American Standard translation says "Cease striving and know that I am God." What a wonderful thing to attain to!  As I meditate on the truth that He will be exalted among the nations, and in the earth, I have great reason to "be still." My job is to be obedient, and His job is to be God. Dear Father, I ask You to daily plant this truth firmly in my heart and mind.

We are very excited to report that our paperwork is in the air on it's way to Eastern Europe! We also received our bio metrics (fingerprinting) appointment with USCIS!
These are two big steps closer to the finish line!

Regarding our last post: God has given us peace about the whereabouts of our little one. We know His Spirit is watching over her. We continue to pray the following:
  • that she be kept in good physical and emotional health
  • that our process will be expedited 
  • that she would find favor in the eyes of her caregivers 
  • that every need in this adoption process would be met
Thanks for your prayers!  They are priceless and eternal!

  1. I've been following your adoption story here recently and I would really like to help you get closer to your adoption of sweet "A". I have a soft spot in my heart for Downs Syndrome kids and special needs kids. I am a Tupperware consultant and Tupperware has a very generous Fundraising program. I have recently hosted 2 of these Fundraisers for other families adopting and they have done well. I would love to host one for your family and help you get closer to what you need for your adoption.

    Fundraisers Receive:

    40% of the online sales totals. Tupperware will issue you one check within 2 weeks after the fundraiser closes.

    Let me know if you have any questions, I'll be happy to see if I can answer them. If you would like to set up an adoption fundraiser, just email me and let's see how much we can raise for y'all!! I'll be happy to put you in touch with the other 2 families I've worked with and answer any questions you might have.
