REFERRAL!!!

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. "The Lord is my portion," says my soul, "therefore I will hope in him."  Lamentations 3:22-24

We received the referral of a precious baby boy yesterday! We are overwhelmed at His goodness to our family.  This looks nothing like we thought it would look when we started the process over a year ago, but it is His plan, and we rest in that.

God is in the details!! I will post more about it later.  

We are praying for a quick court date so we can travel to get our little man soon.  We would be grateful if you would do the same. :)

He is amazing, just beautiful!  Trust me.
