Feeling Blessed

We've had a nice weekend. We've had time with friends and family, and you know that always gives me such joy.

I joined the Yahoo! group for Evan's province to try and find other families who have adopted from the same orphanage.  I just joined the group yesterday, and today I've connected with another mom. Her family adopted a  child from the same orphanage.  She had really good things to tell me.  She was able to visit the orphanage after her adoption and meet some of the staff.  She assured me over and over that the children there are so loved.  This certainly made my day.  She shared other things too and it's good.  At the end of the phone call, she told me they would be praying for Evan.  How sweet!

I've been praying for Evan to be loved at his orphanage and have at least one caretaker who loves him.  Now I have confirmation on it.  God is good!

Here is a photo we received 2 weeks ago.  It's Evan when he was 3 years old.  Sweet boy.

What an adorable picture of your sweet boy!! You need to frame it and put it up in your house- he is so cute!!

It is such a blessing from God when we can hear about our children as we wait!! And so comforting to know he hears are prayers and is answering them!!

Thank you Jesus!
