Here we grow again!




Tomorrow we begin again . . .



We've got the agency . . .



We've got a homestudy lined up and ready to begin . . .



We even have a picture of a darling little girl who has stolen our hearts and is not yet paper-ready . . .




Mostly we have heard how "impossible" it will be to adopt this particular little girl . . .



Her file isn't anywhere yet. As soon as she gets on the shared waiting children's list, I am told it will be "seconds" before she is taken. . .




But still . . .



I had a phone call out of the blue the other morning from a friend who knows about the impossible becoming the possible with God . . .



That phone call came at an interesting time . . .



Right after a night of fasting and praying about that very thing . . .




Of.all.the.people.in.the.
world.
who.could.have.called, this friend's call was significant . . .



He and and his wife began an organization with only a few dollars in their pocket with the divine provision of our God . . an organization that has brought hope to countless orphans . . . Impossible . . . yes it is by "men's" standards . . .



But not by God's!



"For nothing is impossible with God." Luke 1:37



Stay tuned and see.
