Preparing For Rain

We are waiting for USCIS Approval, seems like it has been so long, we thought that we would have our Dossier in E.E. in February...then February slipped away. We then had our hopes set high, we honestly thought that we could get our adoption paperwork expedited.But for reasons that we can not see right now, God has not allowed our approval to come quickly. We are still waiting.................. Our little boy Brian is at great risk for being transferred, we more than likely will be going to an institution rather than an orphanage to fight to get him., he may go to an institution where he may not be adoptable. We know that the Lord knows about that better than we do. We can only see right here right now, God can see the entire picture. We pray...we cry out, we ask our heavenly father to help us get there soon, we cry out to our God who is in control. We don't always understand. We will wait on Him and trust Him that we will one day soon bring home our son. It is hard to wait, we have been loving that little boy for a long time. I want to hold my son and tell him that I love him. So as March slips away, we trust God's timing and we patiently wait on the Lord. PLEASE PRAY for us....PLEASE PRAY for our little Brian.
While we wait, we prepare, God has placed us on this journey, we did not know what He had in store for us...we just knew that one day we would adopt. We are forever changed now that we see what God has for us, we don't want to be on any other journey, but this one. We are so thankful!! So we prepare... we are still raising funds and we are getting his room ready (this is the paper pregnancy "nesting" part ) we are so excited and so ready to bring him home! PLEASE join us in prayer, may our Dossier be there in April ( very hard to write that, thought we would be there in April ) and that we may be able to travel soon!!
1Thesselonians 1:3 Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father;

Psalm 5:1 ¶  Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation.
Psalm 5:2 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray.
Psalm 5:3 My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.

Psalm 5:11 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.

Galatians 6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
Isaiah 40:30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Remember, our blog auction is going until Sunday night....we still have a lot of Buckeyes candy......also remember that this auction is to bring Brian home. Thank You!!

Please Pray for Kirill and the Davis family!!

Praying for you dear friend! Praying that Brian is still in the orphanage too. Remembering with you that even though you are not there yet ... our Heavenly Father is ever watching over Brian. Take comfort in this precious thought! Love you, Grace

P.S. I know we were praying months ago that we would get to travel together... I hope the Lord's not having you wait on us ... oh dear.
Sorry, just another one of my late night thoughts.
