We have started another adoption from the Philippines!
During the last two years, we have been blessed to see how God has healed our family through adoption. Arabella Grace is now five and she has grown in so many ways. We have seen our little girl blossom as we have nurtured her. We have also seen how God's plan for us is perfect. Our plan B was always his plan A and we cannot imagine a better plan. Arabella has brought so much joy into our lives and the lives of our family and friends. She is precious and we are thankful for the honor of being her parents.
Arabella has asked for a little sister regularly for the last year. She plays quietly by herself many days and when friends come over she is so excited that she nearly jumps out of her shoes. It is hard explaining to her that it is not as simple as going to a store and "buying a baby sister", as she puts it! We are teaching her to pray with us and wait on the Lord's favor for this next adoption. We have only just begun and we know from the previous experience that we must expect, even embrace, the challenges that will arise during the adoption process. We know that we are called to adoption and therefore we trust that the Lord's plan A will continue to unfold. The hardest part is keeping our hands open and trusting in the Lord. We would like to invite our friends and family to pray with us, encourage us, and even support us monetarily through this adoption. We look forward to sharing this journey with you and pray that our adoption journey reminds you that our God is awesome and His love breaks every barrier and heals every heart!
Stay in touch! We will be posting updates and testimonies both here and on Facebook.
