Have a little faith in me…

This video is just precious. It aired on CBS last week—a special on adoption and foster care. It makes me want to ALWAYS be open to growing our family…SERIOUSLY…how SHORT are OUR lives?! How can we make the BIGGEST impact on another while we are here…for this VERY short time! My heart longs to one day adopt an older child—but I know for now, we have to follow our agencies recommendation for our family and maintain birth order. BUT ONE DAY!!! STILL…like the momma of this artist singing…I am so excited to open my heart and home…I don’t even feel like I’m doing a “good thing”. I’m doing what MY heart LONGS for! Isn’t it amazing…how the Lord lines up our hearts with His when we seek to do His will!? OK…if you haven’t seen this already—hit the pause button on the bottom of this page and you have to watch this!

I *GET TO* be a mommy again! And I pray again and again! So many exciting things to come 2010!!! Let us be diligent to pray for the waiting children who LONG for mommies and daddies in 2010! Let us be bold to ask the Lord to make us available if it is His will! Let us find joy in serving and encouraging those who are opening the hearts and homes to make their calling easier! Let us look for ways to love the fatherless and to let them know that someone—SOMEONE in the world—is thinking, praying and loving them!!!
