.Someone is Missing {again}.

We've known it for awhile now, but have wrestled a lot. Things were just starting to get comfortable. Comfortable is when we become good at being complacent. That would be easier, and for us it would be wrong. We've prayed and prayed and prayed, and God has just made it abundantly clear that someone is missing {again} from our family.


So, it is with much joy and expectation that we announce that God is once again growing our family! We have signed back on with AWAA, and have been accepted back into their Ethiopian program. We are entering this with so much thought and prayer, and we know it seems crazy amidst everything else. It seems as though the more crazy we look to others, the more confirmation we receive from God that we are on the right path!

We debated keeping this news private, but feel led to share. It seems as if the enemy is not pleased with the decisions we are making to open our home to another orphan, to follow whatever it is that God asks of us. I hate giving Satan too much credit, but I believe he has been attacking our family. The week we officially started back into the ET program we were attacked from all sides - culminating on Sunday with Cadi in the ER being tested for leukemia. Well, he is not going to win. This is a battle we are ready to fight with Christ in us. We are looking towards eternity and building His kingdom, and for us that includes another adoption. We are moving ahead, and we are excited for what God has for our family. The process is longer right now, and we are just waiting on God's perfect timing. We are at peace.

God is impressing on our hearts to request a little girl this time - between the ages of 3 and 7 - Sophia is the name we have chosen and how we pray for her. We are still praying about some special needs that we may be open to. Cadi will have a sister. I could not be more excited!

Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us. Ephesians 3:20

Humbled that He would work within us.
