God Sets the Lonely in Families

We feel tremendously privileged to be able to parent these silly treasures!!

And we are so very excited to be on this new journey to our boys!!
(oh how I wish I could share their photos)

I am speechless as I watch God's plan unfold before our eyes!!

We have wanted to grow our family...
We have fasted, we have prayed, we have cried out to HIM!!

And now our Heavenly Father is moving mountains!!!

We have filled out paperwork in record breaking time.  
We have submitted and/or requested 
all documents for our agency clearance and for our dossier.

Right now the only thing standing in our way to move forward is money.  
We have stepped out in faith by scheduling both 
our psychological update meeting (this Thursday the 23rd) and
our home study update visit (next Tuesday the 28th...My 40th birthday), 
without having the funds in hand. 
They are the last two things needed to be able to send our dossier and file with immigration!!

We truly believe that God has hand picked our sons to be in our family,
and therefore, we believe that HE will provide every step of the way!!

We have had folks ask how they can help us fund our adoption.  
We set up a paypal account "Bring Our Boys Home" that can be found on the right tool bar.
by clicking the DONATE button it will walk you through the steps to make a donation.  

In Psalm 68:6 has been so heavy on my heart over the past few days.  
For so long I took the verse to mean that 
God causes Families to have a lonely spot, a desire to welcome more family members.  

Today I decided to read it in in several different versions
it says,

"God Sets the lonely in Families..." (NLT)
"God settles the solitary in a home..." (ESV)
"God places the solitary in families and gives the desolate a home in which to dwell..." (AMP)
"God provides homes for those who are deserted..." (HCSB)
"Father of orphans, Champion of widows, is God in his holy house.  
God makes homes for the homeless..." (MSG)
"God settles those who have been deserted in their own homes..." (NET)
"God gives lonely people a family..." (NIRV)

It speaks directly to the orphan and widow friends!!
I love the versions that say...
God provides homes for those who are deserted
God settles those who have been deserted in their own homes

I love love that God has called us to be "their own home" for three more boys!!!!
They will know love and laughter
they will be allowed to be children
they will be treasured
They will be in their own family!!!

You may not be called to adopt...
but if God is tugging your heart,
would you help make a difference to these three?
