Prayers Needed

Since beginning this adoption journey, we have had a few bumps in the road, as I am sure most adoptive parents have....

Well, this is a big pothole! Bella's country may close international adoptions for a few months. :( No one really knows why, but it seems to be some in-fighting and power struggles between political parties. Anyways, for those of us families who are ready to go and get their children, this is definitely a time for prayers! Would you join us in praying that the country will not close adoptions, or at the very least, that even if they close, that adoptions of kiddos with special needs would be honored and allowed to continue?

So from nothing happening on Tuesday....to Thursday....let's just says things can change rather quickly!

I'm a little down but continuing (trying) to trust in God's will in all this. Kevin says maybe this will make our adoption story a little more interesting. Good try, Kev!


  1. You KNOW I am praying over this one. i just keep handing it over to God, what more can we do??
