Well I wanted to write and let those of you who I have not talked to know what is going on in our adoption journey.
A couple of weeks ago we were praying that God would come through in the adoption of the twins in Africa.
We prayed and fasted and prayed some more.
A week after the meeting that took place with the aunt we finally heard from the orphanage director.
She let us know that the aunt of the girls took custody of them and that they where living with her now....
We really went through a time of grieving and not understanding what God was doing.
To be honest I still grieve for them and that we did not get to adopt these precious girls.
I found myself wanting to know why....why do I hear such great testimonies of God working in other peoples lives and yet He did not work in ours.
OR DID HE?
Many of us say to God "God use us...use us Lord"
are we really serious when we say these words to Him...Or is it just lip service.....Or He can use us as long as we come out on top.
Yes Lord thank you for using us!!!
I truly believe that if it were not for us wanting to adopt these girls their aunt would not have come forward for fear of loosing them.
She realized how much she loved them and did not want to be without them.
Thank you God that we were able to be a tool to get these girls a forever home, even if it is not ours.
Yes it still hurts to not have them... Yes I still cry when I think about them....
But God had a different plan for us and for them...
We pray for them every night... that God would protect them and show Himself to them.
They will always be in our hearts and their pictures will always grace the walls of our home.
We love you Amara and Alana!!!
Many of you have asked us what is happening now...
to those of you who have supported our adoption of these girls...
Your donations for these girls will be going to bringing a child home...
We are currently working on a lead with an adoption agency in the US to adopt from Colombia.
and we will update you when we know for sure what is going on with that.
I know what a change...right..
more details to come.....
