More ways of how God provides

We are proceeding ahead with the referral this week, continuing to trust God for His leading and will for our family. Like I have share many times already, we are amazed at the funds that have been provided that we need. God is good all the time.

I also just found out that we have another neat provision. When we come back from travel to get the boys, we will have to re-adopt them here in the states so we can get official birth certificates and such. Which is, as you can imagine, another cost that is involved. We had some local friends just finalize their re-adoption last week (yay Rogers family). parents have a friend here that is an adoption attorney who is willing to help us out when it is time. All we will need to pay is the court cost and he is willing to donate his time. cool. A significant savings for us and a blessing for sure.

God keeps swinging the door wide open and bidding us to trust Him for each step of the way.

Dear Sweet Peas,

We spent some time today making a plan for when you transition into our family. It gives us lots to think about and pray for. Do you know we pray every day for you, knowing we can't be there to meet your needs now. But we can pray that God protects and cares for you. We are praying that when you come home, your bodies, minds and spirits are healthy.

Love, Mom


  1. Just another perfect visual of how God's heart is for adoption and that He provides abundantly. Yay God!!!

  2. Praying for a good adjustment all the way around - for everyone. I love greeting the boys each morning - on my fridge - and praying they have a good nights sleep in Addis.

  3. Do you HAVE to re-adopt them? We've never done that. I feel it is disrespectful to the Russian system....and, actually, besides that, I like the way the Russians do it. They issue new birth certificates with us as their parents. I love it.
