Adoption News

Some of you already know this information, but it may be new to some of you…..so here goes.  About two weeks ago we received news that America World had some children in their Haiti program they were unable to place.  I scanned the 4-5 options and there was a sibling set of four brothers, ages 11, 7,5, and 3.  I called Ron and asked him to pray about it.  So, he and I both did.  We felt the Lord leading us to pursue this.  We were the only ones who requested these boys that qualified, due to having to have been married 10 years and be at least 35.   Now we are at the step where the orphanage directors loved our application and family, but the Haitian government wants an updated home study and a psychological evaluation due to the #of biological children in our home.  So, that is our next step.  If we are accepted we then get to see pictures and get background information.  It feels so fast and so crazy, yet so far it feels peaceful.The Lord has put these boys on our hearts. 

Last week I pictured the four boys in my front yard asking me for food, water and clothing and a family…..and thought if they were in my front yard of course we would take them in!  I think we separate ourselves from the pain around us and in the world, especially in light of the abundance of everything we have. 

I am reminded of the following scripture passage in light of this:

Matthew 13:44

“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field.  When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his JOY went and sold all he had and bought that field.”

We are praying for the Lord to make the path clear and direct.  We covet your prayers for wisdom and discernment….and provision.

Blessings, Ron and Michelle
