BIG news!

Within the next few weeks we will be bringing home our 2yr old son and 3yr old daughter! 

Thanks to all of you for being prayer warriors with us during this journey. We will continue to covet your prayers as we begin to transition our babies into our family. Thanks for all your prayers, love and support. And thank you in advance for loving us as we cocoon with our babies over the next few months. 

Much love,

A bit of gratitude

This week has been heavy so far so I'm thinking that it would be good for my soul to ponder the goodness of the The Father in my life. Just a bit of gratitude...

Thank you, good Father for...

-A delicious breakfast with yummy golden yellow eggs yolks. Thankful that God lets me have taste buds to delight in flavours.
- Godly grief that leads to repentance. It's messy and painful. And it makes me oh so thankful for Jesus dieing on the cross in my place. Thank you Jesus.
- Phone chats of home, cooking, and Jesus with my Grandma who lives in Oregon. What a gift from the Father to have a friendship with my grandma. What a gift from the Father to have a grandma who loves Jesus.

A bit of new-ish news...

Yes. I'm still alive.
We have had a small bit of new news with our adoption journey so I thought I'd take a quick moment to share.

The Uganda program at our agency is taking a bit longer to get going than they had originally thought. Because of that we have decided to stay with the Uganda program but also to start pursuing fos-adopt, and birth relinquishment simultaneously. Whichever program refers a baby/ies to us first, then the other two programs will become void at that point.

Did you notice that I said baby/ies? When we started pursuing our Ugandan adoption we said that we were willing to take twins. However, twins are not very commonly up for adoption in Uganda. With fos-adopt you have a higher chance of getting a younger baby if you are willing to take siblings (ex: a 1 year old baby and 3 year old sibling). So... We are willing! We are willing to accept whomever and however many God will give us!

Anyway, that's my short update. Will you please continue to pray for us as we continue this crazy journey of bringing our baby/ies home?

still waiting for our baby...

I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in His word I hope; my soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning, more than watchmen for the morning.

Psalm 130: 6

His timing is perfect.

We are still here... waiting for word about our baby girl. The waiting is getting old now... there is angst that comes with this sort of waiting. I think about baby girl so often. But...

"I will hope continually and will praise You yet more and more. My mouth will tell of your righteous acts, of your deeds of salvation all the day, for their number is past my knowledge." Psalm 71: 14-15


"I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living! Wait for the LORD; be strong and let your heart take courage; wait for the LORD!" Psalm 27:13-14

The verses above have been balm for my soul when I get weary in the waiting.

Praising Jesus that His timing is perfect. Praising Him that He is always working things out for my good AND His glory- at the same time! Those two things do not work against each other. Its always my good and His glory, because of that I can hope! Thats where I have to ground my thoughts, otherwise I'd go crazy thinking that God was a cosmic kill-joy, instead of the loving gracious Father that He is.

I praise God for this waiting period! I praise Him for the love that He has been stirring up in my heart for Ruby. I praise Him for the longing He has put in my heart to embrace my daughter and just... be. I praise Him that He loves her more than I do, and is taking care of her as I type this. Glory be to God!

The above photo is a glimpse of some of the things we have been putting together for Rubys room. Its so fun getting her room ready. Sometimes I sit in the rocking chair in her room, having precious moments with Jesus... I just dream about Ruby and pray for her. I so look forward all the precious moments that I will have rocking her in the chair once she is finally home!

My dear friend and Neighbor had her baby roughly a month ago and below is a photo that I took of her and her daughter. Makes me cry everytime I see it.

 I was so honored to be able to take belly photographs of her every month during her pregnancy and also come visit her baby in the NICU once she was born. For a few months before my friend got pregnant, we began praying that God would make that happen. Obviously God answered our prayers, and now their daughter is here! She is answered prayer right before our eyes! Glory be to God! Our God is faithful and full of goodness. His timing is perfect. Always.

walking in love
