... or not ...

Today we learned that an Italian family is OverThere and in the process  of adopting the brothers.  We knew from the beginning that this is a possibility.  We are not hurt by this. Do not be sorry for us or for them. 

Instead PRAISE GOD, that now that they have a family - and we can begin looking anew.  We got into this because we felt led to adopt and while they were on my heart, obviously my purpose in their lives was to pray for them to find a family. He has called some to sow, some to reap, and some to harvest.

And in other news....

In other news.... we're at it again.

We know it is crazy - but we are starting the adoption process again.

Quit yelling at your computer screen.

Right now, we are targeting this group of brothers (ages 6, 5, 4, 2) from Eastern Europe.  All four of them are in an orphanage.  We have just started doing paperwork this week.  The one in the blue shirt has developmental delays and a skin condition   We don't know much additional information about them.

We can do simple arithmetic.  We know that 2+4 = 6 (something many friends and family members have pointed out).  We also hold the view that children need parents; we can not hold such a position and not be willing to stand in the gap.

Here is what started this latest round:
