Overcoming Obstacles

It's been a while since the last post because we've had a few hurdles to jump. Our computer died around March 10th, so we were completely out of touch. We just got up and running again last week. At the same time the computer went out, so did our well. We were without water for days. Then this past Friday no water AGAIN! This time there was leak in one of the well pipes. They just finished repairing it today!! I've heard lots of stories similar to this of other families who are trying to adopt children and give them a Hope and a Future. Jer 29:11 Seems like everything comes at us trying to discourage us. The world would say, you can't possibly add another child when you keep having all these problems. But Jesus said,".. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world." John 16:33 We do need to support each other when hard times come because we need to help one another identify who is sending the trouble. It's definitely NOT our Tender Heavenly Father who says, "Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from Him." Ps 127:3 We continue to move forward to rescue Addison mowing down the obstacles with thehelp of the Lord. We are being fingerprinted this Friday for our I600A. We know He will provide even when we can't see how. We stand on His Word in Heb 11:1. Read it. It's a great reminder of what Faith really is.
