I was just fiddling around and reading some blogs from other people who are adopting through our agency. Our agency is All God's Children International (AGCI) by the way. A great agency if you are considering adoption. While I was reading these blogs I realized how many wonderful passages from the bible people include in their blogs. Many of these I have heard over and over again but now they take on a whole new meaning. God's word is truly alive and teaches us new things each time we read it. Today one that made me cry a few tears was this from Romans. "...but hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has? But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently." The Stewards' hope is alive and well during this time of waiting. We believe in our new daughter who is unseen.
Just a few new things in the lives of the boys. Aren't they pretty. Shh...don't tell them I called them pretty but seriously they are gorgeous. Today I believe Noah turned a corner in potty training. He has begun to run to the potty and claim "I HAVE TO PEE!" Praise God. He also threw a huge fit tonight when I had to put him in a pull-up. Sean potty trained in less than a month. We have been working with Noah for a year and a half. It's so true that each child is different. Sean is learning to read. He has begun to sound out new words and actually lets his mom teach him a few things. Until recently he did not enjoy when I tried to be his teacher. Now that he goes to school with me, and has first hand knowledge of what I do, I think he realizes I might have a few skills.
Day 4 in Guatemala for Chris. He has sent one email saying that he is doing well. He was able to give his testimony to around 200 people. I'm a little sorry that I missed it. His testimony always touches me. God gave me a Godly man when I didn't even know it.
