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 the Judge today!!

OK, friends. Now is the time to PRAY (still). Here is the update that Luciana sent us last night (with my explanations added):

Just to let you know that the person from CEJA (the State Judicial Commission for Adoption--they have approved us and are advocating for us) went to talk with the judge (the one who was on vacation for a month. Her responsibility is to the children and she is the one who decides whether or not to invite us down to Brazil to meet them and adopt them). At first the judge was saying the same thing about being too young and 4 kids (which is what she said the day she left for her long vacation) but the good thing is that she took your letter and process (all our paperwork) and said she would take home to think about it. I see this as positive..... but I don't know.... I will let you know if I hear something.

Praying that that judge can't stop thinking about you, even in her sleep.....

Saw you on Angie's site (Audrey Caroline). I pray right now, God, that you will move mountains out of the way for these children to come HOME. Lift the spirits of these weary parents and allow them to finally *feel*, in physical form, the title of Mom and Dad that they have been carrying in their hearts for so very long.

We, too, are waiting for a judge's signature for our adoption. Our little girl is in India, and we began our adoption journey in 2006- so I know how deeply the wait can effect all aspects of life. May God answer our prayers!
