Still Waiting for Our Newest Member

Our Team Needs Ellie!!!!"Sermon on the Mound" was our theme for this year's Bible School. Of course that meant a lot of baseball stuff - like the T-shirts- as the kids learned about the Beatitudes from Jesus' Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5). I thought this was a cute picture of our "Team" except that we are missing one key player- Ellie!

No news on our LOA! Where is our LOA?! Again, we know God's timing is perfect and although we wish it was His plan for us to be united with our daughter now, it simply is not. So we must continue to wait and trust Him. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. . ." Proverbs 3:5 I have known that verse for years and sing it with my children, but I ran across it this week and have "seen" it in a whole new light ever since. I don't understand why we are still waiting, but my God does. I know He has it all worked out perfectly. Maybe this week will be the week He has in mind. I hope so!

We are praying for you and for Ellie.

Let's see, Ellie will be #6. Only 3 more and you will have enough for a real baseball team. Come on LOA !!!!

I love the picture! Just think...when you got Lilly, she did not have a smile on her face and now look at her!! Looking forward to Ellie joining the 'team'!!

Hope you get your LOA soon. We actually reviewed her file back in 2007 but were already signed with another agency. So glad to see she found her forever family, she is beautiful.
