People continue to encourage us by asking us how the adoption is going? You may ask how can THIS be an encouragement when all we have to say is the same thing...we are still waiting. Well...it tells us that we are still on people's minds and hearts. We are encouraged that there are still people that are praying for us and our little one.
We really were hoping that she would be home for Christmas at the beginning. Then we were hoping that we would at least know who she was and be preparing to go meet her before Christmas and now silence. In the silence what can we do...PRAY! Honduras is definitely going through changes with their structure in IHNFA-what is it you may ask-we have NO idea. Is Unicef getting involved. What does that mean for us?-again we have NO idea at this point. All we can do is ask you all to continue to pray.
Yet, even though I have times of just my heart aching to know our little girl and get her out of whatever situation she is in I have peace. Peace in knowing that My GOD is totally in control. So what can we do? Continue to lift our hearts cry up to God and continue to trust that HE know what HE is doing and in total control.
On a joyous note, a friend of Ariana's and her family have opened up their home for foster care and are caring for 2 little boys. The desire of the mom's for years has been to adopt and yet never thought that they could. In hearing our journey during the summer they started the process. Please be praying for these friends that God would direct them in their journey as well. What a blessing to see how God can use us to prick the heart of others. I am so thankful for this journey and how GOD has drawn me closer to him and given me a new understanding of what it means to be adopted as HIS daughter.
he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will-- Eph 1:5
Praying that we will be able to say things are moving again soon!
