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

Waiting Through the Pain

This week, 2 years ago, we were in Haiti meeting our baby girl for the first time. She was more beautiful than we could have ever imagined! She melted in my arms just perfectly. I'll never forget that 1st moment or the days to follow... filled with great joy and deep sorrow. A roller coaster of emotions unlike any I've ever experienced before. Oh, how I long to hold her in my arms. Loving her from a distance seems almost unbearable these days. We were certain she would be home by now. Reaching the 2 year mark, since we traveled to meet her, is a milestone we would have been more than glad not to meet. But here we are. We know our God is sovereign. We know He loves her with a more pure and amazing love than we can comprehend. So we wait. We wait through the pain. We pray for her, that God will sustain her. We ask him to bring peace and joy to her life. A peace that passes all understanding, a joy that only He can bring. We are blessed to have been chosen to be a part of something so amazing. We believe our God will be faithful to complete what He has begun. We wait in anticipation as God continues to write our story...
