"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. The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him" Lamentations 3:22-25

Tomorrow morning, likely while we are still sleeping a decision will be made half way across the world about our adoption. It will be decided if all the papers are in order, if everything has been done properly so that our adoption can be completed. We trust in knowing that our waiting is on the Lord and in his timing. All things that come to pass tomorrow, (or yesterday or today) have been predestined since eternity past. We have comfort knowing that all things are according to the council of God's own will. We have comfort in that because we know that nothing can thwart his will, he is the Creator of all things. His mercies are new every morning and in that we find our comfort.

Please join us in praying for all the many families that will have court tomorrow. Also be in prayer for the many families that have been been waiting for a court date for so long, and those families that are still waiting for a referral.

We will post something as soon as we hear the outcome tomorrow, it will likely be in the afternoon.

I've been praying for you guys and all of the other families waiting on results.

Isn't the waiting torture? I'm trying to go about my day...but, my mind is in a different land. I'm sure you can understand that!
