Feeling a little like Cinderella!

It has been nice to take a break from reporting all the drama that comes along with an international adoption.  I can't say that it has been all bad.  Actually, none of it has been bad, just trying.   God has been stretching my faith and having me surrender completely to Him.  For this, I am grateful.

The kids and I have had a wonderful couple of weeks...sleeping late, staying up way too late and all sorts of fun filled activities tucked in between.

These extra weeks have been a great time to build memories and treasure just being a family of 4.

As court closures are fast approaching (Aug. 7), I am feeling a little bit like Cinderella.  Just as she was dreading the clock striking midnight, I too am DREADING the thought of not passing court BEFORE the court closure period.  I feel rushed, in a hurry.

I have requested prayer on our behalf soooo many times and yet here I am asking again!   Please pray that God would continued to sustain us.  That we would remember that He has already won this battle!   Our ultimate goal is for Jesus to receive all Glory and Honor through our journey.  We (mainly me) have not always been trusting and honestly questioned God's timing.  There is a bigger picture, one I cannot see.  It simple involves a God who KNOWS the what, whys, and hows of this process.  It is simple my job to surrender.  So... I am choosing to find JOY IN THE JOURNEY!  Wherever He leads, I will follow.

On another sweet and precious husband is having an MRI tomorrow.  Would you pray that all is well?  He has been experiencing some hearing loss and the ENT wants to rule out any tumors or diseases before we discuss treatments.

Hi Kara,
Praying that God will make away in the fullness of His timing for Ava to come home. It already seems like a long haul for your family so I am asking God to move quickly so she can be home by August.
I pray God's presence and grace over your family with a confident expectation of the fulfillment of His promises of all He has spoken to your hearts. I pray that He would be given all the glory in your journey of faith. Last but not least, I pray for Tulio, that God would fully restore his hearing.
Love and hugs and prayers,
