Finally :)

Well I must confess that I am a bit excited for this weekends services at our church. Our pastor is going to talk about adoption and is going to interview a couple who has adopted three girls from China. I am so excited as adoption is so close to my heart. My husband and I started an orphan care ministry there about two years ago and we have wanted to talk about foster care and adoption during a service for a while. God is moving and we now have an opportunity. Our pastor is going to talk about both adopting children and being adopted into the Kingdom. I am so excited as I have been praying for this opportunity for many years now. My prayer is that the people will be ready to receive the message the Lord has for them not only on adopting children or helping orphans, but being adopted into His Kingdom and what that means for them. On a more personal note, I am also excited because all of the details have been worked out with our county and we have been in contact with our Lawyer. All the papers are signed and I am just waiting to hear back from her to get our court date so we can adopt our youngest son. She told me on the phone this past weekend that it would probably be the 3rd or 4th weekend in April, of course I am hoping for the 3rd. God is moving in my life so much lately I can't even stand it sometimes. He is so Awesome! Anyway, I just wanted to share a bit of what is going on here in my life. Have a blessed day!

I don't know what I enjoyed more...watching you in the back of the sanctuary grinning ear to ear (with tears being wiped away) or hearing the adoption story. It was a great service and I am so thankful that I have been able to witness this amazing journey of faith. I love you, Tammie! And have been praying for you and your family!!!!
