More Birthdays, A Special Visitor.....and Adoption News....

Rebecca's 15th birthday was yesterday and we celebrated by going to the zoo. The weather was perfect and we had a great time. Friday we will celebrate all the March birthdays in our family...there are 4 of them!

We recently drove to Chicago to pick up a very special British visitor to our home!!! Chris has been Jennie's on line "relationship" for quite a while now. They have skyped untold hours, facebooked each other and texted for the last 2 1/2 years...and they were finally able to meet! What a wonderful time they (and all of us) have had this last week! He will be here for just under one more week and I'm sure there will be sooo many tears when he leaves! He is such the English gentleman...in a big, rugged sort of way!

Well....our adoption seems to be going nowhere. We have finally been able to contact our agency yesterday and she said that nothing is moving in the country we have chosen and is really pushing us to change countries. I'm not sure I feel led to do that....

However, we have been emailed information about two separate cases with a child in need of a home and we are prayerfully looking into that! One is a little girl aged 7 and one is a little boy aged 5. They are both beautiful!!! We can't have both. They each need the love and attention that being an "only" little child in the home could provide. I could love either one! But we are still in prayer for the situation and just as in the earlier adoption we tried in November, we would have to be chosen by the family who has the child currently. So...if you think about it, please keep us in your prayers. I don't know if I can handle being heartbroken again. I'm sure I can...because God gives us strength, doesn't He?
The strange thing is, if we end up getting either of these precious little souls, it would all make sense why we didn't get the two children in November! These current children are both from the same agency that handled the prior case. We didn't even know about that agency until then. Perhaps God was preparing us for the child He wants us to have. We'll see, I guess!! :)
We are seeking God's Will in this.
