On This Day In 2011

enjoying my last day at home today before starting my journey half way across the world to Uganda tomorrow.

Completely in awe of where my God has brought us in the last 2 years. 2009 we were finishing up our domestic infant adoption classes, those plans were totally out the window by the next year when we were waiting for our little Zoës arrival any day, and today we prepare for a journey that I never thought we would be on, one that I pray is the first step towards bringing us to our children a world away. Can't wait to see where God has us in 2012. 

A man’s heart plans his way,
      But the LORD directs his steps. 

Proverbs 16:9


  1. This actually made me cry. Seeing blatant examples of God's control is humbling, encouraging, and amazing. Seeing clear evidence that we are being used to fulfill wonderful purposes for His kingdom is the most thrilling experience I could hope for and is one of my greatest answers to prayer.

  2. It has been so wonderful to see day to day the purpose God has for your precious family. He has done some really wonderful things for you from changing how you love to guiding you through fears. I cant wait to meet my new grandchild(ren)! Love ya, Mom F.
