When God calls you must be willing to say "Here I am send me!"
Sometimes it takes a leap of faith accepting that He will provide!
You never know the blessings you may receive!


"AND WHOEVER WELCOMES A LITTLE CHILD LIKE THIS,

IN MY NAME, WELCOMES ME." Matthew 18:5

ADOPTING A CHILD WON'T CHANGE THE WORLD,
BUT FOR THAT CHILD, THE WORLD WILL CHANGE.

Update!


We have been settling in and all the kids are doing amazingly well!

The boys already insist on praying even for a snack. It is really cute to watch. We also pray with each child at night before they go to bed. I am sure they do not understand what they are doing but they realize it is important.

Max will try to copy what we say and they all say AMEN! at the end of every prayer!
God has been very good!!!
I can only praise him for the blessings he has bestowed on us!

Today was the one year anniversary for Lexi's Forever Family Day!!!
I posted on our family blog and that is where all future posts will be.

Thank you all so much for the love and support and prayers you have given us on this leg of our journey, it has meant so much to us!


Thanks again and God Bless you all!!!
