thank you for your support!!!

thank you so so much to everyone who ate chicken tonite to help us bring our baby home! if you are looking at this site because you got a flyer on your car... thank you for taking the time to look at it & hopefully you got to enjoy some chick-fil-a tonite as well. :) we pray that you will read over our blog & see how the Lord has led us to adopt & will keep up with our journey. our God is so gracious to us & has made us a part of His family & He desires to adopt you into His family as well. 
thank you again! we will let you know how it went when we get the check from chick-fil-a! thank you to CFA by the way. they are great! if we ate meat we would eat there. ha.

still waiting...

trusting the Lord's perfect timing & waiting on Him. He knows our baby & guards their life. we cannot wait to see their sweet little face! Jude's favorite thing to say right now, "my get my baby myganda." :)
our family is waiting to rejoice over this little one. pray for him or her... we covet your prayers for them.

slowly, but surely

we had a yard sale today... we made about $500! a little closer to getting our baby!
as we were working today, at times it was very frustrating & we were pretty tired since our boys got up at 5:30, i thought about how the Lord fights for us... labors for us! how weary we get when it comes to serving the Lord!!!
He who promises is faithful! He is SOOO faithful & we are so unfaithful. it makes me want to work hard for this baby, to rescue them, to give them a home & a family.
He rescued us... "I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you." John 14:18
He is good.

it's becoming more real

there are days that i forget that we're waiting to adopt a baby, it's so surreal! i'll just be driving along with my 2 boys in the back seat & then think, "oh my gosh, we're #2 on the waiting list to adopt a baby from Uganda!"
this is all the Lord's doing! all His timing! ALL for His glory!!!
i need to be more faithful to pray for our baby. i am so grateful for the aunties that are caring for our baby even now... it's 5:45 in the morning in kampala. our baby will be waking up soon. i rejoice that this sweet one is in the Lord's hands. He holds them with His right hand.
i just watched these 2 "gotcha day" videos from families that have already adopted... pretty much i cried A LOT! I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

we can now legally leave the country :)

so i had to apply for another passport to get my last name changed. :) & we had to apply for the boys' passports...
WE GOT ALL 3 OF THEM IN THE MAIL OVER THE PAST WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! they said it would take up to 6 weeks & it only took about 2... praise the Lord! we're one step closer!
we also received an update from our agency, that there's no update. :) His timing is perfect!
please continue to pray for our sweet baby.
