book, and random thoughts

So I a just finished reading a book on Adoption from our friends the Pulos'. This book really was amazing, and helped answer questions about how answer questions people ask of you through the process. Also it gave some insight as to the struggles and the joys you will experience.

We are gathering all the info that we need for our may meeting. Please be in prayer as the Lord works on our hearts, and directs our paths. We have many students in the ministry and those that we have come in contact with that have been adopted. They are really open and honest of struggles and joys. One of which said that she was adopted when she was 3 and she was considered unadoptable because she was old. That breaks my heart knowing there are so many children out there that are looking for homes and looking for someone to love and guide them. What a better way to share the love of the Lord. We are going through our house and getting it ready for a home study.

I don't even know who reads these posts, but it helps to jot down the process. We are always constantly amazed by the Lord and how our lives are to reflect the Lord and bring glory and honor to Him. I know that I have done people wrong, but I honestly am doing all I can and know how to live as a passionate follower of God. I pray that people encounter a loving and just God in there interactions with me. I pray they don't remember the junk, but remember the Lord.


  1. I know that there are people out there that are reading your posts...they may be like me that don't always post a comment but by reading your post I know what to put on my prayer list for that day/week/month. Please continue to post as it reminds me of my brother. He was adopted when he was 2 months old as his mother didn't want anything to do with him because he was a sick child. My mother had just had a miscarriage and was able to breastfeed my brother even though she didn't give birth to him (just picture a Scandinavian woman breastfeeding a African baby boy-yes we did have some interesting situation at the airports when traveling....huge smile!!!)...God works in mysterious ways and I know that you will be blessed beyond your expectations - Dan and you are awesome people and doing such a powerful work with our youth that I can only lift my hat to you both!
