As I was sitting here, I began to think about how much we have to be thankful for. We have a God who loves us so much that He sent His son to die for us! I am thankful for having a very loving, devoted husband. We have 6 healthy children. There are so many people out in the world who can't have children, and God has truly blessed us with many children. I feel so blessed that God has laid it on our hearts to adopt a child. It has been on our hearts for a few years, but now we are really listening to God's call and following through with it. I know we will have to sacrifice a lot to raise the money, but the thought of providing a child in need with a family, just warms my heart! Our children are also becoming more excited about bringing a child into our home. They just don't understand why it takes so long. Here are some things our kids have said that they are thankful for:
Tyler: I am thankful for food!
Jacob: I am thankful that Jesus died on the cross for me!
Zachary: I am thankful for what my parents provide me with!
Logan: I am thankful for my parents & God!
Mason: I love strawberry milk!
Kyndal: I love Dana(her baby doll)!
Christopher: I am thankful for God creating a person better than me and allowing me to have her as my wife!
The Lord has truly blessed our family! We have a wonderful church family & friends! My daycare is going very well and God keeps blessing us with more children. All the extra kids that have came is helping pay the expenses for our adoption. I feel like The Lord just continually shows us that this is what His will is for us.
