John was fingerprinted today. That means we are 99% done with our restudy paperwork. Hallelujah!
I don't think I can thank you enough for your prayers and support. You know who you are. Thank you.
A lot of you have emailed me about who we are specifically adopting. Honestly, I wish I could tell you. There are still a few things being worked out in regards to us being able to officially commit to these particular boys, but when we do, I will be shouting the news from a rooftop!
I know it doesn't make sense to you. . . hey, it doesn't make sense to me either, but it is what it is.
Meanwhile, we press forward. The social worker is coming to visit. I will send off for marriage certificates, etc. Tomorrow, the bidding for the brown ruffle bag ends. It is amazing to see how the bid has grown over the last few days. Thank you for that. We all know that the bag itself is not worth so much, but that the money raised for it is going to help bring home two children who do not know the love and joy of a family. It has been a blessing to see you all join us together for these boys. In case you missed, Julia also donated something to be auctioned off. Bless your heart Carol for starting the bidding. Please take a moment to go and look at the potholder and towel set made with Sugar and Cream Cotton yarn (which won't melt.) The bidding for that ends on Sunday- - your support would not only help financially with the adoption costs but it would also encourage Julia that she too can make a difference to help orphans.
Since there really isn't too much to share right now, here are a few things you can read. But I warn you, they are not easy to read. If you are anything like me, they will make you want to scream. How can person treat another person like this, much less a child?
At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”
He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.
