Jailbreak, Freedom, Adoption, Commission...LIFE!

So I saw this today. How amazing. You can make an argument that this is the "life cycle" of adoption. Adoption is really the gospel acted out. Remember "... if you try to imitate in your own strength, you will be a miserable replica. But if you allow the impartation of Jesus Christ to overtake you, suddenly it all works because it is Him imitating Himself, and He is very good at being God.”

And whatever you do  whether its to adopt, to serve, bless others, intercede for those that need it, love the unlovable, listen when no one else will, carry someone else's burden, teach, heal, or whatever - let him overtake you today....

Yep - still waiting on finger prints ...

And We Wait

I just wanted to touch base with you all regarding the happenings in our home.  Simply put...nothing has happened.  We are STILL waiting for our fingerprints to come back from our government.  We sent them in way back at the beginning of October and as of today we haven't heard jack.  We are extremely frustrated at how long it takes to get things done at the government level.  Not too mention the stress it has on all of us as we wait.  I would love to have the opportunity one day to share how important it is for these older children to not have to wait so long to go to court for the finalization.  So, until the day comes...we wait and wait and wait.

We will continue to post as needed.  For now, please pray with us that our government will see how important it is for them to get things moving along.  I know a little 12 year old who is just dying to become an official "Worthey".

Also, please continue to pray for all of the families who are going through the adoption process - whether it be the beginning stages or the at home stage - things are often times very heart wrenching.  Pray for the children who wait for their forever family.  And, remember that you can make a difference in the life of a child.

I am posting one of my favorite adoption videos again.  This one always touches my heart - even though I have seen it a hundred times.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
