I just had to write to praise the Lord for His goodness and for other Christians that love Him and sacrifice for His glory and honor! Today, we received another gift of money for the adoption. The Lord never ceases to amaze us in His timing and faithfulness. We have been Christians long enough to know that, often, the Lord instructs us to do things that sometimes we just don't want to do. Maybe it requires inconvenience, pain, sacrifice of money or time, etc. and we just ignore what He is telling us to do. Ashamedly, I have been there myself on more occasions than I would like to admit. Nonetheless, when we actually do walk in obedience to His leading, the blessings are greater than words can even describe. It is our prayer that this precious family experience a double measure of God's blessings! There are two boys in Russia and a family in Purlear who are forever grateful...
As an update..our adoption agency has our dossier (formal paper work), is waiting for one form to be completed (on their end), and then our dossier is approved to go to Russia where we will be registered and wait our referral for the boys. Are we excited? You better believe it!
Blessings to all,
Kim, Craig, Taylor, and Leah
