God’s Picked Her Out Already

I don’t normally read the newspaper, but last week I did, probably because school is over and this homeschooling mom is a bit of a wanderer for the first few weeks of having no subjects to teach.  So, the second page of the Arizona Republic is the international news.  There was an article about Colombia that didn’t include information about the FARC, so I was drawn in.  Seems there was a natural disaster near a mountain village and 12 people were killed.  It hit me like a ton of bricks (no pun intended)…. this could be a story about Zaza’s family dying and her entry into the adoption world.  Weird, huh? 

My mind can go a bit crazy with the multitude of scenarios that might make Zaza available for adoption at five or six years old…. too many kids in a poor family, young mother without means to care for her girl, brought up by grandmother who dies, car crash leaving child an orphan…. or a natural disaster.  We just don’t know.  We might not ever know all the details, but we do know that God has her picked  out already for our family… or should I say, He has us picked out for her.  That is reassuring!

Faith is the Substance of things Hoped For

Today marks three years and five months since we started our adoption process to bring home our little Colombian princess to join our family.  Wow.  That’s a long time.  Never did we think it would take this long.  Never.  But we still have faith.  Faith in a God who instilled in us a desire to parent an orphan child who will bring joy and love into our lives.  Faith in God who is still secretly hiding the remains of our adoption funds in places we cannot see at the moment.  Faith that God never plants a dream in your heart without the plan and way to see it through.  Faith in the adoption system to carefully protect and match children with forever families.  Faith in those precious people who are caring for our little girl while we pray and wait.  Faith that Zaza is the right little girl for us and we are the right family for her!  Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.  Hebrews 11:1.
