Our little boy Caleb doesn't need to be told twice when Daddy tells him to go "put on your boots"! He doesn't know where he's going, doesn't know how long it'll take or how much it will cost; All he knows is Daddy asked him to go spend quality time with him and that's all it takes for him to obey. We have heard the same request from our heavenly Father concerning adoption. We are embarking on this adoption adventure with Him not knowing the where and how; All we know is God wants to spend quality time with us and teach us who He is on a deeper level.

Lost and found / Objet perdu

Today I received and filled out our application for our home study. While going through my "American Dream" folder (my American Visa paperwork!)I found a piece of paper in one of the inside pocket; It was the instructions on how to adopt a child overseas! It's been there for more than 5 years and I didn't even know. Adam had pick it up while visiting a US immigration office for my Visa. When I showed it to him tonight he was really surprised and couldn't remember why he had picked it up. I guess God had started the work in us a long time ago. His timing is perfect and I'm glad He's taking us through life one small step at a time.

Aujourd'hui j'ai reçu et rempli notre requête détude maison. Tout en fouillant dans mon "Reve Americain" (cartable rempli de papiers important concernant mon visa americain!), j'ai trouvé un morceau de papier dans une des poche intérieure; C'était les instructions sur la façon d'adopter un enfant outre-mer! Ca fait plus que 5 ans que ca trainnait la et je ne le savais meme pas. Adam l'avait prit une journee que l'on avais ete a un bureau d'immigration pour mon visa. Quand je le lui ai montré ce soir il était vraiment étonné et ne se rappellait meme pas pourquoi il l'avait prit. J'imagine que Dieu avait commencé son travail en nous il y a plus longtemps qu'on le croyais. Son temps est parfait et je suis contente qu'Il nous dirige un petit pas a la fois!


  1. I love how God does things like this! He is so amazing, always on time :)

  2. I find God doing the same thing in our lives so many times. He starts a story in our lives so long before we really catch on, doesn't He!? What a blessing to have Him show you a little piece of confirmation of His plans for you! I love it!
