Thanksgiving & Prayers

This holiday season we have so many things to be thankful for. God has blessed our family this year in so many ways, especially in revealing Himself to us in a new way. In adoption, just as salvation, there is a release of control and acceptance of His gifts.

Thank you to all of you that have reached out to support us in our journey...the prayers, encouraging words, and all of you who ordered cakes. Each of you play a part in this wonderful story and God is blessing your kindness so greatly!

We ask that you continue to pray for us, especially Friday, December 4th, Nate and I will be meeting with our case worker for our initial interview and our individual interviews. A total of four hours of interviews, and although we know God is with us, it is difficult not to be anxious!

Please for peace for us this week, for calm in our nerves on Friday, and that God would control our words and guide us as we discuss and answer all of the questions the agency has. It is an odd feeling to know someone will be judging us as people, as parents, as spouses in regards to our ability to parent, provide a stable home, and love to a child, especially by a stranger. However, the adoption requires this and as awkward as this will be, we know that it brings us one step closer to our little girl!

Thank you our dear friends for your prayers, we treasure them beyond measures!
