Answered Prayer

This has been quite the emotional week for Kevin and I. We had been praying and opening up our hearts to the possibility of having the young man that we asked everyone to pray for. We really felt led to pursue him. Somehow, the young man was referred to another family. We were absolutely shocked, and I personally was devastated. BUT, I know God allowed this to happen, and we are trusting in Him to take care of it all; especially this young man in Ethiopia. He is definitely in our hearts and prayers.

Kelly, we have been praying faithfully for your family and certainly won't stop. Sometimes it's hard to know where God is leading and exactly what He's doing, but trust Him in all things...He will never let you down! Hang in there!

My dear family in Christ, I am so sorry for this and the hurt you must be feeling. It's so difficult to understand and trust God when you think you are following His lead and then He changes directions. I pray that you will have peace, guidance, wisdom, and grace during this difficult time. We are praying for you!

Kelly, I can't imagine all you are going through. I pray that someday God will make the reasons clear to you...preferably on this side of heaven. You are in my heart and prayers.

While I'm thankful that he was placed with a family period, my heart goes out to you. We had a very similar experience this winter .... heart wrenching. It's so strange how God will open our hearts and lead us in one direction - only with a different result. I guess our faithfullness lies in following regardles of the outcome though, right? I'm so sorry for the emotion you now have to walk through....but having been there, and now having a referral -- it's still all worth it! :) God bless you for your hearts!
