Today is Brian's Birthday! He is 5 years old now, and at risk for being transfered to an institution. We are praying for God to soften the hearts of those in charge at his orphanage, so that they will keep him until we are able to go get him. We know that God is in control no matter what happens. We are praying for God to Protect him, to keep him safe, while he waits for us. I wish I were there right now to hug him and tell him how much we love him. We are longing to bring him home and can't wait for the day we will tell him that we love him. This holiday season for my husband and I won't be the same, to have our little boy so far away is hard, we miss him. Next year Thanksgiving and Christmas will be so nice, to have our new blessing home with us! We do have our three children here, they all wish thier new little brother were here also.
We are trying to get all of this fundraising started....wow...easier said than done. God put this burden on our hearts to adopt...He then lead us to Brian, we know that God will make a way. I am not sure if all of these families that are there, traveling or getting ready to travel have raised all of the money they need, but they are getting thier children...Yay!! It has been a blessing to read all of these blogs...so many from Reece's Rainbow families, and to follow thier journeys, it has been an encouragement and a joy! We have been praying for these families. It has been amazing to see God at work for many of these families. Praise the Lord!!
We are still working on our first blog auction, I wanted to start it last week, but we are waiting on a couple of details, hopefully we will be starting it next week. We are also getting ready to start selling Lasangna to raise funds. We are working with a family from our church on a Nativity fundraiser...that should come together soon.
Thank you to Emily, Grace and Charrissa for being such a blessing and encouragement to me...they have been such dear friends to me...I love you all!! Also to Luba, thank you for all your help and encouragement.
Thank you also to my church family for all of your love, support and prayers, we love you all!! Well I have been busy getting things done for later today, I really need to get some rest. Please celebrate Brian's Birthday with us and pray for God to work in all of this for us. We know that our God is faithful and true and that we loves that little boy so much more than we could ever imagine. We thank God for using us to go get Brian and we desire to raise him up for God's glory!!
Have a Very Happy Thanksgiving!!
