The Big News!!!

This is one post that I have been so excited to be able to write...We are overjoyed right now because the Lord has once again proven His faithfulness to us. On Thursday of last week, we received a phone call from our adoption agency saying that there was a child right now in need of placement, and would we be interested in accepting that referral? Most of you know that Luke and I were hoping for a sibling group, so this took us a little off guard. After a day of praying about this we decided that yes, once again we were wrong about what the Lord had for us. We decided to accept the referral. Want to hear about our new little one???
We are happy to announce that Zemanesh, our new daughter will be joining our family in just a few months!!! Zema (as we are calling her ) is two years old. At this time we are unable to post pictures of her, as she is not legally ours yet, but believe me when I say that she is BEAUTIFUL. She has big dark bright eyes with LONG eyelashes (just like her older sister, although the similarites probably stop there :) She is healthy, and seems to have been well taken care of. We can not wait for you all to meet her!
I will post later this week more details about what is to come, but we wanted to go ahead and share our good news for now!
Thank you all so much for your prayers and encouragement. We are so blessed to have such a wonderful support group of friends and family! Please continue to pray for our little one, for this time of waiting until we can go to her and bring her home. It breaks my heart to know what she is probably experiencing right now. Pray that she will feel her heavenly Fathers arms around her, holding her until we can. Pray that she will feel Him wiping her every tear, and soothing her fears. We know that He is faithful, and we claim that He is the Father to the fatherless. Thank you for praying!
