Hi Mandy and Eric, the video was very insightful. I hope it helps you find some answers to your questions. He brings up some interesting points.

We know you will be prepared for this task of parenthood. We are waiting now with you, always praying. We know you are excited, and yet, yielding. Being humble in spirit makes you more open to God, and helps you see your need for Christ. It is a concept most christians (including your dear old Dad) struggle with, because we ultimately have to make decisions everyday that can have lasting affects on our lives. Following the guidance of the Holy Spirit helps us stay on the right path.

So, a very insightful message. Sort of puts all those naysayers in their place, too, uh?

Wow that was amazing. Really a God thing for me! I was just praying about our role in adoption and it made me think of you, so I checked your blog and watched this video. Thanks for sharing this. I totally agree! Adoption is such a loving choice!!

Hi there. I came across your blog while reading some other adoption blogs. I am a new adoptive parent and can sympathize with what you are going through now. The process can seem never ending at times, but keep your eye and heart on the amazing reward there is at the end - a beautiful baby. God definitely knows what he is doing. When I first held our little girl in my arms I knew that this was the baby that God meant for my husband and I to have. Best of luck, I can't wait to see how your story unfolds.
