I have THE MOST EXCITING NEWS to share with you!!!
In July, our family is hosting a sweet little orphan girl from Latvia in our home! WE ARE THRILLED!!
Is she the sweetest thing you have ever laid eyes on?!!
We are so in love with her already, and we cannot wait to shower her with love!
All of this has taken place in the last week. That is why my schedule went wacko last week, and I didn’t get to post like I had hoped.
We were busy getting things squared away with Project143.
Have you heard of Project143?
“Project 143 changes the lives of orphan children – ONE child at a time, by providing them an experience that will change them forever – life inside a family. We change the lives of host families, too. There is nothing more nourishing to the soul, than the experience of giving a child… HOPE. Your family will feel more blessed than you ever imagined after hosting an orphan child.”
I found out about it last fall at the Allume Conference, and I knew that God was tugging at my heart to love on these orphans. But I didn’t know when or where.
But now I do.
God has lead both Cy and I to this sweet little girl, and we cannot wait for her to be a part of our family this summer.
Here’s the other crazy part!!!!
We are starting to fill out adoption paperwork, so IF THE LORD WILLS, she will be our forever daughter!!!! (This is NOT through P143. Project143 is a HOSTING program, not an adoption program. Our adoption paperwork is through another agency.)
There are a whole lot of “ifs” ahead of us, and we would covet your prayers, but we have such a Peace knowing that God’s hand is in all of this!
For the record, THIS WAS NOT PLANNED! This is a total God-thing that unfolded last week. But we couldn’t be happier.
I look forward to sharing this journey with you!!
Since I am focusing on Letters of Love this week, I wrote one to our sweet girl.
