Adopted for Life…carried in my heart for always

Found your blog on Katie's and just wanted to say that it's funny what God will do with you when you let him. Having just brought home our 4th child. Second adopted one. We have an almost 20 yr old as well as 16 yr old bio children… so people weren't all that supportive of us.
God's not so worried about that ;o)
Prayers for your newest addition, whomever they may be.

Sweet Andrea,
What a beautiful way to describe the calling in your heart for adoption. My goodness, any precious child would be unbelievably blessed to be welcomed into your gracious home. Matt and I are praying for the little one, wherever he or she may be right now! As yall are carrying him in your hearts, we will certainly be carrying him in our prayers. What an amazing testimony, Andrea! Love you!

Andrea- I was so excited about what I read that I had to share it with my mom! She couldn't quite figure out how to post her comment so she asked me to do it.

Precious Andrea and Richard,
Your family is so deeply imbedded in my heart, I love you all so much it hurts sometimes!! I count it a privilege to be a part of your extended family and now I can join you in praying and loving(ahead of time) the baby God plans to be in our family! I can't wait to see this unfold. The other familiy's story and your blog has been read through tears and my heart is so full that I only wish I were a few years younger, to consider this for us! How I am inspired with your obedience to this call God put in your heart years ago. From what you've told me, He is confirming it by placing that vision in the hearts of your children even…Wow, He is so good! We love you all so much and join you in prayer and desire!
Love, Lesa
