We were contacted today by our adoption agency and we learned that a family who had been matched with a brother and sister in the Philippines decided not to pursue their adoption. They were at the point where the children were awaiting their visa appointments - that is so close to home. Can you imagine? When you were so close...so close to home you and your brother are alone -again.
Here is a description of this brother and sister: "The sister was born in January 2004 and the brother was born in July 2008. The little guy was born with congenital heart disease and is on a list now for a year in the Philippines awaiting heart surgery. "
If you are thinking of adopting - Hebrews 4:7 says Therefore God again set a certain day, calling it Today, when a long time later he spoke through David, as was said before: "Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts." Now I know this scripture speaks to hearing and receiving the gospel - But when I heard about this it came to my mind immediately.
Some of you might say "but adopting older kids is hard" -granted. But if you read this blog you will know that it is more than doable - its beautiful.
If any of you are hearing his voice now. Today might be the day. Call Kim at 970-226-8948 if you want to hear more.
