Dearest Friends and Family,
I will come and proclaim your mighty acts, Sovereign Lord;
I will proclaim your righteous deeds, yours alone. Psalm 71:16
We stand in awe of a Mighty God, an Awesome Savior and the Great I Am. We are rejoicing in giving God the glory for his wonderful deeds! All of our paperwork arrived in China on August 26th. Yippie!! We were then just in a holding pattern waiting for the Chinese Government to give us official approval to adopt our son. We were told that the range of time that it typically takes is 2 to 4 months and that because of some changes in the system it had been taking 4 months. So we began praying and asking God to intercede to mover the paperwork faster so that we could bring home our little boy. God quite literally parted the Red Sea and moved our paperwork through in 3 weeks! We stand in awe of his perfect timing and beautiful answer to prayer.
We are now waiting for final immigration approval and then we will wait for our visas and then we will get a travel invitation to travel to China to pick him up.
Please pray for Wyatt to have a sense of who we are even before we get there to get him. Pray that he attaches to us and does not suffer from the inability to attach. Please pray for God’s perfect timing for bringing him home.
The name Wyatt means brave and strong. We know that to have survived his circumstances of living in a hospital with 200 children in less then ideal circumstances have indeed made him strong.
It is my prayer that our journey of faith will inspire you to adopt one of the millions of orphans needing a family, or will encourage you pray regularly for the orphans around the world or to help someone financially who is adopting. God’s word is clear in James 1:27 “Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father is this to visit orphans and widows in their affliction and to keep oneself unstained from the world. “ Pray and ask God today how you will respond to his voice.
Thank you once again for your faithful prayers...please keep them coming. May God alone be glorified.
In the grip of His grace,
Mother of 13 and writes this blog.
