God is good. He has a good plan.
And, He is faithful to guide those who will wait on Him.
Thank you for your prayers, and thanks to those of you who followed God's nudge and contacted us via email or phone call or FB and told us just what God was telling you.
Thanks to the sister who stayed up at night praying and followed God's nudge to tell us to read His word and trust and obey what it says.
Thanks to the brother who got woken up by a powerful dream about adoption and shared it with us.
Thanks to the sister who got a vision of the permanance of Anastasija in our life.
Thanks to the sister who got a vision of God's Big Plans for Anastasija, whose name means 'resurrection, breaker of the chains,' (from the very first time you saw her picture).
Thanks to the MANY people who have felt burdened to pray for us and have done so diligently over the last few days and weeks. Your prayers have made a difference in our lives.
Thanks for the words of encouragement.
Thanks thanks thanks.
Thanks to God for being SO ABUNDANTLY CLEAR with us that it is a good thing, a God thing, to pursue making Anastasija a permanant part of our family. I do not know what the future holds, but I know that God loves to place the lonely in families, and that our family is a part of that plan for Anastasija.
One of the coolest things so far has been the way that God has nudged and spoken to various people who we don't even get to spend a lot of time with. Just good, godly folks who spend time talking to God.
Our first step is a conference call tomorrow night at 8. Please keep us in prayer at that time, that our kids will stay (quietly) occupied and that we will learn all we can about this long, complicated process.
