Oh those Numbers!



...The IDEA of adoption that was laid on our our hearts by the HOLY Spirit - through prayer and obedience - we followed this passionate tug to change the life of one or two ORPHANS - to GROW our FAMILY, to LOVE another child with NO family FOREVER... for His GLORY!!

There was nothing random about it!
We thank GOD for breaking our hearts for what breaks HIS! 
...and we started off on this AMAZING Adoption Journey...

Though, we have a ways to go still - The 'Numbers' always "talk" to me! :)

From the initial 'thought' of adopting, to getting on the waitlist, to waiting until OUR Number is UP!
...It's not at all the number that's represented - it's GOD'S Child for us that he already has CHOSEN!!  I think the ENTIRE process is AMAZING!  As ANXIOUS and EXCITED I was to get on that crazy WAITLIST... having to fix multiple things... Hurrying as FAST as I could to get it all off and into the mail. As much as I hurried or called to check on stuff, or emailed about items to be completed, All of it IS in GOD'S time!  He put us on that WAITLIST right where he wanted us - it coinsides with his PLAN.  The NUMBERS we receive each month are from HIM!  He already has our Sweetie(s) all picked out for our FAMILY... and I CANNOT wait to see how HIS plan UNFOLDS!!

Our FAMILY would LOVE to adopt SISTERS... But, we are putting this idea in our AWESOME FATHER'S hands and if ONE daughter happens before TWO... we will be OVERJOYED with happiness with HIS referral for our FAMILY! :)

As we wait to see which NUMBER God reveals first we rest assured that HE is in CONTROL.. :)

    The LORD's Answer
    2 Then the LORD replied:
    "Write down the revelation
    and make it plain on tablets
    so that a herald [a] may run with it.

    3 For the revelation awaits an appointed time;
    it speaks of the end
    and will not prove false.
    Though it linger, wait for it;
    it [b] will certainly come and will not delay.


    LOVE that verse!! :) XOXOX! See you SOOOOON! :)
