Hank was checking out the path over the Atlantic Ocean. If you look closely, you can tell his destination was a little bit off. No, we're not adopting from Saudi Arabia, Yemen, or the United Arab Emirates! :) He was looking for Bulgaria, and eventually he found it! This little 4-year old of mine is SO EXCITED about his "little sister" and he has watched her video even more times than I have! Thank You, Lord, for how you are at work in each of my little boys' hearts, softening them and preparing them to have S as a sister!
Please pray that this next step of the process (translating, authenticating, and submitting our dossier to the Bulgarian government) will go smoothly and quickly. There are lots of little things and a few big things that need to fall into place, and we are trusting the Lord to continue to carve out the path for us to bring S home soon!
This is what God says,
the God who builds a road right through the ocean,
who carves a path through the pounding waves...
"Forget about what's happened;
don't keep going over old history.
Be alert. Be present. I'm about to do something brand-new..."
Isaiah 43:16, 18-19
A few days ago, I read a great, little quote by my favorite theologian, Charles Spurgeon. He said that "waiting implies being ready." I love that!!! We are waiting, Lord, trusting that Your timing is best! But, boy, are we ever ready!!!
