We are adopting. In those three little words, there is so much meaning. They are the words that send my heart soaring — it’s so surreal, has been SO long on our hearts, and the journey we’ve taken to this place looks nothing like we originally intended. But so it is with God.
His panoramic view has smashed my Polaroid at every turn. I can see only what is in front of me—the virtual snapshot of the life I’m living—and yet in his gracious goodness, He sees it all and is not shaken by the tidal wave of any one moment. His plan has been perfected in the waiting, and it is with great thankfulness and JOY that we find ourselves back here, in this space....waiting on His timing ❤
We are adopting from Armenia. We have chosen a special needs adoption of a waiting child with down syndrome; we are pursuing a little girl currently waiting in an orphanage, although we cannot be officially matched to her until we have submitted our dossier to their foreign government for review.
God has anchored the plight of these orphans to our very souls and it is apart of us--even now. The need is great and the families are few, and we believe these children are WORTHY. We desire to proclaim God’s gracious goodness and INTENTION over these precious ones. They are worthy of being wanted. We have chosen a down syndrome adoption with deep, loving intention.
We are stepping out in BOLD faith and brave love. This timeline is rushed – there is a waiting little girl and the time is NOW. We are running towards her with everything we have.
In the next four weeks, we need to raise $10,000 for the next agency fees. It’s a big number, but God is so much bigger. We know He delights in bringing orphans into their forever families, and we raise our arms to Him knowing HE WILL MAKE A WAY for us in this season. He’ll light the path, and we’ll walk it in JOY as we bring our girl home.
I always tell my three year old, as he’s running around the house at lightning speed with his eyes on the floor, “LOOK UP! Look up, so you can see where you’re going”
Friends, will you look up with us? Will you fix your eyes on the One who adopted us ALL into His family as orphans, and will you help us bring this precious baby girl home?
