The Lord is Gracious and Full of Compassion

The Lord shows us in many ways His love for us. He has shown His love for our family in a big way just recently. As I mentioned above, we have just begun the process to adopt from Ethiopia. It has been a long road to get us to this point of obedience, and has taken a lot of prayer, tears, and disappointment along the way. For two and a half years, we have been trying to have a baby and although it has been painful and hard, we discovered this week the reason for all of it. It has become quite evident to us that adoption was the Lords' specific plan for our family. He has taken us on this journey of infertility for that very reason.... perhaps He knows we are stubborn and that was the only way to get our attention! He has made it clear to us that His plans are perfect, they are always on time, and never waver in our questioning them.

So, maybe you have figured it out by now....or maybe you are wondering why I am rambling on about this...but here it is: Luke and I just found out that we are expecting baby number two, who will be coming in about nine months! Thats right, Maddie was correct....She will be having one "dark skin" brother or sister, and one "light skin" brother or sister! Praise God for His faithfulness to us!!!

I AM SO EXCITED FOR YOU!!!! I had no idea!!! AHHHHHH!!!! YEAH!!! You really have no idea how happy I am for you two right now. God is so faithful....always. It always amazes me to watch His plans unfold; not because I don't believe His plans are so great, but because of how truly amazing He makes them. What an incredible story of faithfulness and obedience. CONGRATS!!!
