So I'm a late bloomer in the 'recognizing grieving' department, but eventually I want to share with you some of the information we learned this week on line. It has been such an amazing help to us. Right now we are in the final stages of grief, and I'm just enjoying the harmony in my house!

We received our six-month post placement report today, and it's a reminder of where we were three weeks ago ... and how far we've come! It's no surprise the Enemy would rear his ugly head and try to discourage us. But we serve a BIG GOD who is more than able to overcome. The happy-go-lucky boy we brought home five and a half months ago is back...only with more English and healthy affection for his parents!

I'm so glad to read that your son is working through his grieving. We adopted a 14 year old girl (now 15) a little over a year ago and we have had our moments too. :-)

Great post, Connie!! I'm so tickled to hear such great progress! And hey, the book-knowledge of grieving and such is important but NOTHING can replace the power of prayer to our POWERFUL and MIGHTY God. You've got both! Wooo!

Cari said...

What a wonderful post! I love seeing
what the power of prayer can do!
God is so good!
Sarah always is peeking over my
shoulder when I check your blog.
We both started laughing when
we saw Kooper getting ponies!
She was also encouraged a while
back when she saw some of the
books you have for homeschooling
Kooper. They were the same as hers.
She is 14 and has been home 4 months
now from China.
Thanks for sharing the good and hard
times. You are such an encouragement
to many.

Glad that things are turning around! I am encouraged as I follow your story. thanks for sharing!

I am so happy that things are going well for you all. God is GOOD!
