We found out that it will still be 1-2 weeks before we find out if we receive any support from the grant organization Alan spoke with yesterday.  Meanwhile, we are sending an update and additional answers to questions as requested by another grant organization.  We continue to work on applications for still other grant organizations.

I just read an excerpt from one grant organization’s newsletter in which parents who adopted from Russia speak of how “adoption takes a miracle” and how wondrously God provided for every penny of their financial need for the adoption through a variety of ways.  As we near the possibility of registration and a referral, we are called to lean even more heavily on God and trust that He is more than able to supply our needs so that we can bring our little one home.

I just learned today that in our small subdivision of our very small town there is another couple in the process of international adoption.   At our small church, we have two families who have adopted internationally and one who has adopted domestically.  I’m starting to see the possibility of forming a support group/network for our adoptive families in this community.  Perhaps God will lead us in this direction…and perhaps God can use each of our stories to encourage others to adopt or to give to support orphans world-wide.

On the job front, I continue to update applications and pray for a job.  Otherwise, there is no news.  We appreciate continued prayers for God’s provision of a teaching job.

Thanks for stopping by,

    It would be great if you could start a local support group! Sometimes it is quite lonely when you feel like you are the only one traveling this path.Prayers for your adoption finances and your teaching position. God will provide.
