Until today, I’ve kept this news (mostly) within the family. Seeing as we are in desperate need of as much prayer and support as we can get, it’s time to share.
I received a call late last week in response to an inquiry I’d made to see where we were on “the list”. Our case worker is currently in the process of finding a family for a set of three year old triplets… ALL BOYS.
We are not necessarily praying that we get the referral. Rather, we are praying for God’s will in this situation. Brad and I would love to parent three little boys, but we know that our God is sovereign and we know that there may be another family who is best suited to bring these boys into their home.
And, if God has chosen us to love and care for these precious boys, we will joyfully accept the referral and pray without ceasing that He will guide us along as we (try to) parent SIX people.
Will you join with us in prayer, my friends? Specifically:
* That God would continue to ease our hearts and minds as we seek His will for the triplets and for our family.
* That He would continue to provide financially as we come closer to receiving an official referral.
* That we would remember to praise Him and to thank Him constantly for our own “adoption” by means of His death on the cross and resurrection.
Ephesians 1:5 “God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.”
