Bringing Home 2 More

Well bloggy friends... God's got a fun sense of humor... what's the saying about having plans of your own? His are always better... not always the same as yours. :)

So ... we have begun the journey. HS is done, waiting on some clearances...why are those always the slowest??!

Then we can officially claim the 2 BOYS ... that God has chosen for us.

Yep 2 BOYS... not any girls.

2 Boys that are B age 10 years and A 12 years ...one being hiv+.

Not what I thought we would be bringing home... I had envisioned a tiny little china beauty for months...then God said nope, not my plan for you. So then I envisioned a beautiful little Ethiopian girl.... then God said nope, not my plan for you. So then I envisioned perhaps a boy girl sibling group... there had to be another girl in there somewhere.... but again God said Nope... still not my plan for you.

We received our waiting child DVD and the children that said "I am yours" were 2 unrelated boys... older boys....

We still have to have Dossier paperwork done...my half is finished!!... so that we can claim them as our own, but we have asked to be considered for them.

We have been blessed to have 6000 towards our fees, but still need the 805 for USCIS, another 8000.00 to finish the agency processing fee and travel expenses.

We know God has a plan, for us...for them and for the finances to come together. We know He will provide...He's taken care of everything thus far.

Will you pray with us?? And for A and B?
And while you are praying for us, will you check our Linny's Blog and the other's there that also need prayer?

He sets the fatherless in homes... :)

I guess this just means that you'll have to go back for your princess :)

So happy for you. I bet your boys are thrilled.

Somehow I found your blog and have been praying for the waiting boys on the AAI DVD! I can't wait to hear who they are! Praise God!
SO Many older children wait...and wait...they see all the babies and toddlers come and leave with families and they wait...
Praise God!

Praying for our Lord to continue to provide for the costs and guidance as well, through His body, and peace for you in walking in faith in this :)
