Getting up so early helped me get everyone going and all the kids had a good day. Shad is flying through his schoolwork and Steve is also doing great. I did some errands today and again ran into sweet friends who blessed me by telling me how they'd been thinking and praying for us! I dropped off a load of things at one of my favorite thrift stores "God's Share Program" and the director blessed me with two cute brand new looking shirts for Selah!
I have some great news! One of the three children that we had thought abut going back to Ukraine to adopt left his orphanage today with his family! We are so thrilled for him and for this sweet family!! So thankful that his life was rescued.... This coming week a family is going to get one of the girls that we spent alot of time with at the institution. She wanted a family with all her heart and now she will have one of her very own! So very thankful!!! Another family is leaving for a boy and a girl there that we spent some time with interacting. They will soon be in a family! And of course soon Sally's family is coming!
But.... (this tribute by another family)
We met Stacey ...when we were adopting Gabe and Levi. She was in Gabe's room. This year she was transferred from the baby orphanage to the mental institution.
The Bible says, "The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me."
Is this true when we do nothing? Whatever you don't do for the least of these, you've done to me.
Please just keep this in mind when you see me or others asking, begging, for help in raising funds to bring these orphans home.
Stacey had a family coming for her. But it was too late."
I know many of you pray for Selah daily and thank you so much for that! Tonight will you pray for the orphans of the world? Pray that God will raise up familes to open their hearts and home to them. Thank you!
