To digress

This is how I feel :) On one hand we have received the best news we could expect at this phase of our adoption journey. On the other hand, my dad's health continues to decline, and he will not accept Christ. I know the Lord doesn't need my help. It's completely up to Him to change hearts. I just want to be obedient and share the Gospel, as He has called all believers to do. Will you continue to pray for my dad?

And then there's life. In the midst of everything else (oh, I need to add this to my to-do list), we are doing a refi on our home to take advantage of lower interest rates, and we just found out the apprasier is coming ... tomorrow! Good grief. I'm going to be in two different cities taking depositions today, and I'm expecting to have tentative travel dates tomorrow morning, and we haven't gotten to the 'house cleaning' part of the list yet!

We have become friends with another family we hope to travel with. Our prayer is that their TA would also come this week and we'd be able to travel together. We are remembering you! In other news, our travel companion has started a blog to share the adoption journey through her eyes. It will be a new perspective for us. There is a link in the right margin of my blog, or check it out here.

Thank you for your prayers and many words of encouragement. They mean so much to our family!
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Psa 46:1

Connie, your post made me cry today. Tears of joy and tears of sadness. I will pray for your dear dad. I am so excited for your beautiful family. Please keep me in mind, if I can help you and/or your family. Best wishes for a safe trip. Jacque Knecht

Connie and family,
Know we'll be praying for you all as you prepare for and then travel to meet your son, but also know we will be remembering your Dad and his salvation in our prayers. Love, Stephanie
