Officially begun

On June 28th I read a blog and saw a precious picture that changed my life.  As I read this blog and looked at the pictures of the precious child that the blog was referring to, I felt God's presence.  Ask about him!

I talked with my husband about it and after he spent time in the Word and praying, he told me to inquire about this precious little boy.  I got in contact with the agency, read the requirements, look at more pictures and videos.  Each time I see this child I am a roller coaster of emotions.

Today I took the first step in starting the adoption process.  Today I filled out our family information form and submitted it to the adoption agency.  As I filled it out I was filled with excitement and wonder.  It is still not certain if we will be able to adopt him or not.  There are several road blocks (mainly financial).  But I know that I serve a God who sees no road blocks.  A God that can make things happen that we could never imagine.

I know that this child was put in my life for a reason.  I am hoping that reason is so we can bring him into our family.  But if that is not the reason, I am okay with it.  God has already placed a desire to promote advocacy for orphans on my heart.  If God's only purpose for me in this process is to promote advocacy for orphans or to help orphans find forever families, then I will be honored that he chose me.

Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.  James 1:27
