Finding Peace Again...

So much on my heart... How do I put it into words...

I'm not sure.  All I know is that

~ I am the clay in God's hands.  All I want to do is what he wills me to do.  I have prayed unceasingly for God to reveal his will to my husband and me.

~ there is a woman in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, who ill and is inflicted with the Aids virus. She gave birth to a daughter on November 12, 2008; and knowing that she would be unable to raise her, decided to give her up, with the hope and prayer that there will be a family who might want this child.

~ in 13 days Haley and I will be on a plane headed to the other side of the world.  There is a child there, a little girl, and God has chosen us to raise her.  She will become our daughter and sister.  This child is the answer to my prayers.  And Lord willing, we are the answer to her birthmother's prayers.

Dear God. You have given me peace again.  You have taken a horrible tragedy and turned it into something so beautiful.  You have taken Josi from us only to bring us Saron.  Thank you for your unfailing love and faithfulness.
