Haiti was absolutely more than I could ever put into words. I don't really know what I expected. And I really didn't know how I would feel. I knew I would feel connected and I knew I would feel excited about FINALLY meeting the child that God had chosen for me. I don't think I was prepared to feel so overwhelmed when I looked at the faces of those beautiful children who need mamas. I didn't know I would feel the sense of gratitude for their "foster" mama who is literally moving mountains for them. I wasn't prepared to see my husband broken at the plight of the orphan. But I felt all of these things. I had in my mind that we would be matched with a certain child. My husband, who I have so much respect for, never looked at a single picture. He wanted to be completely led by the Holy Spirit on which child was ours. I don't think either one of us thought it would be TWO!!! These two beautiful faces are the newest members of our Tribe:
We have some GREAT things coming up! We have partnered with some VERY good friends (I'm actually convinced she's my soulmate) the Donaho's. They are adopting 3 kiddos from the same creche and our friendship is nothing less than God Ordained!! We will be having a Night of Worship in June to help us finish raising the funds to bring all 5 of these Haitian beauties home. We also have some auctions coming up over at www.facebook.com/hopehappens.adoption
Thanks for all of your support and prayers! We love you all so much!!
