Father to the fatherless, defender of widows — this is God, whose dwelling is holy. God places the lonely in families.

Psalm 68:5-6

1 Year

Today marks 1 year since we started our adoption journey to bring Esther home. It's a bittersweet day. I know we're 1 year closer to having our baby girl in our arms. But the reality is that we still have so far to go. I'm praying that by some miracle Haitian adoptions begin to move forward at a quicker pace. I'm praying that God would find favor with Esther and choose to bring her home in a way that only He will receive the glory! That is my hope for today. I know He loves Esther. I know He cares for Esther. I know He is ever present as her Daddy. Believing these truths is what makes this process bearable.

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 
Jeremiah 29:11
