|Their Gotcha Day is less than 48 hours away!!|
Such happiness all around as our family will officially be joined by our rambunctious Teague and Trenton on Sunday! Last night, we were given such good news from one of our facilitators here in Ukraine. She called to tell us that ALL of the children's passports will be in today; sooner than we expected.
We were expecting a significant delay with Maclayne's passport because of regional bureaucracy. David and I immediately started praying that God would intervene so that her passport would come in with the boys'. Our facilitator told us that if we didn't get Maclayne's passport with the boys' on Monday, then she would start working on "Plan B". The last thing she told us on Wednesday was to begin praying now and not to stop until Monday.
To be honest, we were a little nervous about Maclayne's passport being delayed. But as I posted on my Facebook page, who am I to think that God would allow something as small as a passport get in the way of bringing all three of our children home?!? Besides, He was the One who had called us to travel to a foreign country and adopt three special needs orphans.
It only took one prayer by David and me to be reminded that He is not only faithful, but He also delights in the prayers of His people (Proverbs 15:8b). Ironically, I count the following verses from Jeremiah 29 among my favorites:
12Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will
listen to you.
13You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all
Will I ever learn?!?
