This is the place where we are have documented the road we have walked in order to adopt our four children from Brazil and the road we are now on as a family. We are keenly aware that adopting is not just a process we've chosen to go through, but part of God's plan for us and for our children. May He be glorified through the process and through our family!

Pray for El Salvador

Some of our friends from AWAA's El Salvador program are preparing to take a trip down to El Salvador with the CEO of the agency.  They leave tomorrow and are hoping to lobby for adoption while there.  There are so many families and children stuck in the tangles of red tape down there and all they want is to be united as families.  Seems very little progress has occurred even still.  The first families in this program have been waiting for well over 2 years and have still not seen any Salvadoran children come home.  We're praying that God will work miraculously on their behalf and for His glory this weekend.  

Isn't it good to know we serve a God who can take care our individual needs so well?  We can trust Him to care for our Brazilian children at the same time as he is working in the lives of the Salvadoran children, the Indian children, the Chinese children, the Rwandan children, the Ethiopian children and the Kazakh children with 100% of his love--all at the same time.  

I have a dear friend who is gifted with the ability to bear the burdens of many others with great love and prayer.  She feels their broken hearts and desperately wants God's best for them.  It's crushing sometimes, the weight of the cares of the world.  But not for our Lord.  He bears all of it--bore it on the cross and bears it today.  I may know a dozen broken hearted, but God knows them all individually and cares just as much for one as for each of the others.  His love has no limits.  That's far more love than I can muster, and I stand in awe of the boundless grace that is free for every broken-hearted soul on the planet.
