Thank you for praying along with us that our children will have a peace that surpasses all understanding tonight. Pray that God will begin to knit together the threads of our hearts, in the same way he knits us together in our mother's womb. They are in my thoughts and prayers everyday. In fact, when someone asks how many children we have, it almost hurts to say 3 when we know there are 2 more waiting for us out there!
On another note: I wanted to post this yesterday, but time got away from me. There are many profound stories of adoption in the Bible and in the history books. In fact, Jesus' life began and ended with an adoption. Joseph adopted Him as his own son at birth, and Jesus appointed "the disciple whom He loved" and told that disciple: "Behold your mother!" just before His death on the cross. Read John 19:25-27 for more insight.
Here's another one----the story of Moses. If you haven't read Exodus 2 in a while, go pick up your Bible and re-read it. Ask yourself where would we (all of history) be, if an adoption hadn't occurred in the life of this lowly Hebrew baby boy. An unlikely event: a Hebrew boy adopted into the home of the Egyptian Pharaoh. The Pharaoh's daughter opened her mouth for the speechless baby in the river. What if she hadn't?
Open your mouth for the speechless In the cause of all who are appointed to die. Open your mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy.
