Our 2012 New Year's Resolution

I haven't blogged in so long, in part because of the amazing journey God initiated for our family in 2011. Toward the end of the summer, Joel and I felt the Lord stirring our hearts to add to our family through adoption. And so we began the long process of forms and paperwork that over the course of months led us to this sweet little seven-month-old baby girl in Haiti.  She is living in a wonderful home called Children of the Promise, and we are expectantly waiting to bring her home.  

This journey is teaching our family so many important lessons, not the least of which is how to believe with hope that God will indeed work all things--the delays and frustrations along with the joys and excitement--together for our good.

Thus, our New Year's resolution this year is to hope and expect for God to do His amazing work in our lives and to bring our little girl home.

"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope."  Romans 15:13
