Adoption update

Things are happening around here!!

We received our biometrics fingerprint appointment this past week for September 19.  We have heard they may accept us as a walk in so we are going to drive to Tampa to see if they will fit us in early.

We also heard that there may be a slight chance that we may be traveling earlier than we had originally anticipated.

As a result of this news, we are going to start our online silent auction September 14th through September 21st.  This is a whole week earlier than we had planned.

If we do travel in Oct, we wanted to have the auction completely finished. 

This will be our ONE and ONLY fundraiser.  It's just not for us.  We have decided to simply pray and tell God our needs and will rely on him for His help.

Please pray for:

1.  God's perfect timing.

2.  For our hearts and Brenda's brothers heart.  This is huge for him and for us!!  Will we instantly love a 10 year old?  Will he love us back?  Realistically, probably not.  He is leaving everything he has ever known. 

Logically, it doesn't make sense, but our ways are not God's ways and our thoughts are not God's.  We can simply pray for God to knit our hearts together.

3.  Logistics.  God knows what we need and when we need it.  I'm a lightning bolt kind of gal.  I want to pray God in doing what I want him to do and how I want him to do it.  And NOW.  It never really works out well for me.

4.  Our silent auction and all that is involved. 

Our prayer all along has been for God to open the doors that need opened and to close the doors that need closed. 

I believe in prayer with every fiber of my being.  So please come alongside our family and simply pray with us and for us. 

I appreciate all of the donations that have come in for the silent auction.  From the bottom of my heart--THANK YOU!!
