To Tell of His Grace

Adoption Update

We received a referral of a beautiful and precious little girl (12 months old) the other day. She had a cleft lip and cleft palate which would need to be repaired once she got home. We prayed about it and right away we felt the Lord pressing on our hearts to wait and to trust Him. So we called our agency and let them know that we did not feel that she was our daughter. We feel clearly that for right now we are to
"wait" and to "trust". So that is what we are doing  :)

Dear Jesus, please provide a family for that sweet little one.

Jesus is clearly at work...this is not looking at all like what we thought it would. But we feel a TREMENDOUS peace and excitement for what He has ahead. And in this time of waiting, He is drawing our hearts even closer to His ~ and nothing is better than that!

Dear Jesus, we praise You that You are Holy and good and that You hold all things together. You are all that we need! Your love reaches farther and deeper than we can ever imagine. Each and every orphan was knit together in their mother's womb by You and each one is precious to You. Please cover our Kaylee Grace ~ You know her intimately. You know how many hairs are on her head. You knew her before time began...and You knew that You'd bless us with her and entrust us with her precious life so that she may come to know You and feel Your love. Please let her be getting love from her caretakers. Let her be getting quality food that nourishes her body. May You knit our hearts together with hers even now by the power of Your Holy Spirit. Please help us to wait well...may we be patient to wait for Your timing and may we be drawn closer to Your Heart every day! In Jesus' Name, Amen.
