One door closes and another door opens....

Merry Christmas!!! I hope all of you had an amazing time celebrating the birth of our Saviour! We are still recovering from all of our travels (trust me you should see my house). We had such a great time spending time with our family especially my sweet little nephew Ben all the way from South Carolina! Carrson was so much fun this year and it didn't take him long at all to figure out the present situation! I'm so anxious for 2012! God has GREAT things in store for the Ward Circus this next year and I can't wait!!

I have been pretty quiet the last couple of months regarding our adoption process. Many of you know that we had been referred a baby that was due actually tomorrow. For circumstances beyond our control we will not be able to be parents to that little baby. I ask that you please pray for her and her birthmom Joy. I have no idea if she has even been born yet, but I know that she is in God's hands and He will hold her, even though I cannot. With all of that being said, I know that God closes doors that He doesn't want you to walk through and when we are obedient to Him, He leads us in ways that are beyond what we could ever dream! That is where we are now. I am so excited about what is ahead of us, adoption wise. My last post talked about some people that I had met that are doing such an amazing work in Haiti. Well through them, we were able to come in contact with Giving Hope Haiti which is a creche (orphanage) in Haiti. All of the children are legally free for adoption. Kelly and I have filled out the application for them and been approved. We will have the amazing opportunity to travel to Haiti to meet a little girl that will hopefully join our family as the next "Ward". We have requested a 3-4 year old but we are open to whatever God has for us. I have learned in this process that it is not about what I think will "fit" in our family but its who God knows will fit.  Please pray for us in this process. I appreciate all of the support that you have given us throughout this entire road trip! I know that God has great things in store for all of us in 2012! If you are a fan of Hope Happens Adoption on Facebook you can watch for ways you can help this orphanage in Haiti. We have lots of ideas of getting them supplies that they need for these children!!

We hope all of you have a wonderful New Year and pray God's blessings on you for 2012!!
