We have some news!
We have a number,  number 17  on the waiting list that is. What does this mean?
Nothing really, we could 
have a referral in the next few weeks  if the 16 in front of us have a request for an infant or a little girl. We saw evidence of this just last week. We were informed that there were two precious ones in need of a home and our case worker was in search of a home for these two precious ones because the age and gender did not meet the requests of the other families on the waiting list.
Of course we would say YES!
That is why we are on this journey. To give our love and share our life with a little one that deserves a loving home.
You ask, "two?"
Maybe?
In my life I have learned that if I only live a life I'm capable of living I would never look up.
So as of right now, all that we know is our case worker has found a family that might say "yes" to these two precious lives and I jump for joy if that is the case, if they do not say "yes" I jump for joy knowing that we would have two little precious ones coming home with us when we leave DR Congo.
So what now?
  
Time.
It's what causes us to grow, it can leads us to....
Patients.
It's not an easy task, but its necessary  through this process. it leads us to....
Trust.
It's open hands.
Open hands is moving out of the way, and believing in His plan, His timing, while we....
 fight.
For a way to bring our little one home.
WHY?
HE fought for me
To give me.
Life....
In life there is a time for everything.
A time to plant, a time to sow, a time to cry, a time to laugh, a time to mourn, a time to dance, a time to embrace, a time to refrain, a time to search and a time to let it be, a time to keep and a time to give away, a time to be silent, and a time to speak........      
 
We celebrate.

We trust him for every detail
In the above photos is a beautiful  moment we captured of our daughters baptism. A time where we heard her little voice make a promise to live her life for her King the one who gave everything so that she could be free.
