Blogging again! Long overdue post...

Have needed and wanted to share this little bit of info for so long....
For those of you who know us well or read the last blog entry, you know that we were adopting a little girl from Ethiopia with special needs when both my husband and I began to feel God saying "not now"....we stopped things and my heart was broken and full of a million emotions but I just kept trusting in God....
WELL...sometimes God asks us to do hard stuff and we never find out why (until heaven of course) but sometimes....He lets us in on the WHY so that HE GETS THE GLORY! And how glorious HE IS....
So early Feb we said Yes to adopting that sweet little "M"...but by early March heard "No she's not yours" and I didnt understand but followed what I knew God was saying...the next 4 weeks I was crushed spiritually and emotionally and so full of doubt....But on April 1st the orphan advocate (Kristi) who'd told us about her in the first place let me in on some details...
Because we had said Yes and then No, making her available again for adoption, she wrote a small blurb about her on her blog www.weloveourlucy.blogspot.com which caught the attention of a couple who didnt even know Kristi and had already signed with another agency but KNEW she was meant to be theirs!! So long story short- had we not carried her in our hearts for that month and been obedient in saying "Yes" to her and then to saying "Ok not yet"...this couple would have never heard about her and or made it through the hoops they needed to go through in order to get to their precious daughter! Even better...While I was overjoyed about that news I still wondered and prayed for her especially while hearing about hold ups and changes to the Ethiopian system...well in October baby "M" was really on my heart and low and behold if sweet Kristi didnt let me know that she had made it home and is with her forever family now!!!
I've heard it said before "Obedience always trumps worse case scenario" and its so true!!!
WHEW WEE GOD IS GOOD!
OK determining to get back at this blog thing and post pics soon! :)
