Yes, it's true:) It has been laying heavy on my heart for a little while, I don't really know yet if it is truly the Lord speaking to my heart, or if it's myself in the flesh thinking about it. I have to do some major praying about this, so if you ladies could please intercede for me whenever you have a few seconds or so. DH is okay with it, he has two older sisters that are adopted. Thanks for the prayers my friends! :)

Oh Rosa, that is so precious! I will be praying for you on this. I think adopting is a wonderful blessing for for all involved! I always wanted to do that too. Mark and I just never felt God's blessing in that, so we didn't. Then we went and had seven kids! LOL! Anyway, I will definately pray for you all! We have a friend who is in the process of adopting from Korea. It's a little girl who is positive for hep-C and was determined by her country to unadoptable. They are supposed to go and retrieve her this month!! What a blessing!


Have you checked into any of the legal stuff involving adoption? Are you thinking of adopting from your own country or going outside to another? Anyway you do it, I am looking forward to seeing how this unfolds!! (((hugs)))



I hope your year is filled with unspeakable joy!


~God Bless~

Oh, Rosa! May God bless you richly for opening your heart to the possibility of adopting. I will certainly pray for you as you explore this avenue.

Wonderful!

Rosa, honey, you're not alone. I know a couple who is on the waiting list now for a baby. They are a very loving Christian couple, my age, and they are truy desiring a baby. I'll be praying for you dear.

Your sister in Christ,
Robin

Thanks for inspiring me even more ladies:) We're going to pray about it before we make a decision set in stone. It's a big step, and if we do decide to adopt, we are probably going to look into adopting a little girl from Russia, or somewhere along those lines. I'll have to listen to what the Lord wants us to do:) He is in charge!
