One Less Orphan in the World tonight

Since finding Reece's Rainbow, I've been following the blog of a family that lives about 45 minutes from us.  They too have been working to bring home their little boy.  Though we've never met, I faithfully check their blog several times a day.  Today begins a new chapter in their lives.  They went before a judge and for the first time in his young life, Carter has a Mommy and Daddy.  In reading today's post, there is absolutely no way you can deny God's hand at work.  It is events like this that gives those of us in the midst of preparing Dossiers, doing Home Studies, fundraising, and praying our children home the extra shot of energy we need.

So tonight as I lay my head on the pillow, I will recall the words of Isaiah 43: 5-6...

Do not be afraid, for I am with you;
I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west.
I will say to the north, 'Give them up!' and to the south, 'Do not hold them back.'
Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth

... and thank God that there's One Less Orphan in the world tonight.  Welcome to Mommyhood Ashley.

  1. Oh my word!!! I am sitting in K*ev, bored and avoiding all those bags that need to be I thought I'd check on new commitments. And there you are - just a short drive away from us, too! Love it!! And THANK YOU!!! Mommyhood is looking pretty good right about now :) Can't wait to get this boy home.

    Keep pushing through all that paperwork...even with all that's going on in this country, just keep reminding yourself that your son is waiting for you to come and get him.

    Excited to follow YOUR journey, now!!
