Prayer Partners and our Awesome God!

To our Faithful Prayer Partners:

We will never be able to express the extent of our gratitude to all our friends and family for their prayer support throughout this amazing adoption journey.  The end of our journey is finally in sight, and I almost cannot believe it!  We have a few specific requests we would ask for prayer over the next few weeks.

1)  Prayer that the U.S. Consulate will issue the Article 5 letter this week to the Chinese Center of Adoption Affairs (CCAA).
2)  Prayer that the CCAA will issue our travel documents quickly so we can schedule our trip and bring Grace home!
3)  Prayer for the preparation of our three hearts as we become a family.
4)  Prayer for wisdom upon our return as we seek treatment of her club foot and hand and toe deformities.

Please know that you are all in our hearts and prayers!

Choosing to SEE: A Journey of Struggle and Hope  -     
        By: Mary Beth Chapman, Ellen Vaughn

God's Amazing Provision

I am currently reading Mary Beth Chapman's book, Choosing to See.  It is an amazing book about her life and their family's struggles and journey with a good part of the book focusing on their decision to adopt.  Reading their story and seeing God's direction in their lives reminded me of how God has continually worked in our lives through this adoption process, directing our steps and providing for us in more way than we could have ever imagined.  As I look back on our journey, I see God's fingerprints at every turn and stand in awe of Him!  I wanted to take a moment to give Him all glory and praise and honor!  You alone are God!

Psalm 86:1-13
"Hear me, LORD, and answer me,
   for I am poor and needy.
Guard my life, for I am faithful to you;
   save your servant who trusts in you.
You are my God; have mercy on me, Lord,
   for I call to you all day long.
Bring joy to your servant, Lord,
   for I put my trust in you.
 You, Lord, are forgiving and good,
   abounding in love to all who call to you.
Hear my prayer, LORD;
   listen to my cry for mercy.
When I am in distress, I call to you,
   because you answer me.
Among the gods there is none like you, Lord;
   no deeds can compare with yours.
All the nations you have made
   will come and worship before you, Lord;
   they will bring glory to your name.
For you are great and do marvelous deeds;
   you alone are God.
 Teach me your way, LORD,
   that I may rely on your faithfulness;
give me an undivided heart,
   that I may fear your name.
I will praise you, Lord my God, with all my heart;
   I will glorify your name forever.
For great is your love toward me;
   you have delivered me from the depths,
   from the realm of the dead."
