Adoption Update

As you may know, we have been praying to adopt a baby girl for several months. Yesterday we received word of a newborn baby girl in San Antonio. She has some serious special needs.

We believe that God hears our prayer and answers in the way He knows best. This baby may be God's answer to our prayers, and so we are reluctant to say "no" simply because she has medical problems. We are pursuing the adoption while trusting that the Lord will prevent it if it's not His plan. Also, if this is the child for us then we trust that He will not give us more than we can handle.

If this adoption goes forward we would most likely pick her up next week.

I believe this to be the most serious decision that Kristin and I have made since our marriage. We would appreciate your prayer.
