The Face of Haitian Adoption

I read a great post today on another blog, "Rage on the Minivan". I thought her post was worth sharing, so if you're interested in knowing more about Haitian adoption I invite you to visit and read the facts. The facts are sometimes overwhelming, but I found them to be reassuring to me as we push forward. They remind me that we must stay the course even when the paperwork is daunting, the cost is overwhelming, and the timeframe seems ridiculous. The orphan is near to the heart of God. He commands us in James 1:27 "to take care of the orphan and the widow." We must not grow weary; we must stay the course! There are 163,000,000 orphans around the world counting on us!!!! We can't reach them all, but we can make a difference for one (or two) of them. And, every Christian can do something--adopt, pray, sponsor, support. . . What can you do?

Please continue to pray for us. We are seeing progress daily. Monday marked our last visit to complete our homestudy. We're just waiting for it to be written and approved. Then, we can file that ever so important government document--the i-600a. In the meantime, we're collecting each piece of paperwork that must be in the dossier and then it will be notarized and apostiled and on it's way to Haiti!!! We're hoping that this could be completed in the next few months. We've added a link for the orphange on "Blogs I Read"--GLA Haiti. You can read blogs from the orphanage here to get a peak at the orphanage where our son/daughter(s) will spend their life before coming to be a part of our family.

Here are the links I've mentioned. I hope you'll take a few minutes to read and above all else, please PRAY!!!!
