We wanted to share with all of you that we have accepted a referral for a little boy from China....yes, I know this is not where we were originally headed but we feel confident that this is the direction that God wants us to go and couldn't be happier.
The rest of the story....
We got an email from our adoption agency about a month ago letting us know that some children in China has just become available for adoption and were we interested. Danny was getting ready to leave for Haiti for the second time so we wanted to make a decision before he left. We both prayed about it and felt very clearly that God was calling us to pursue this..(we had not yet sent in our dossier to Ethiopia and made the big payment). We sent our information to our agency the day before he left and waited. About two and a half weeks later we got a call saying that we had been matched to a little boy....we were thrilled. Danny and I have never felt like God called us to adopt for a particular country...we just knew that He was telling us we needed to adopt.
We are working now to get our paperwork over to China...which thankfully is not as difficult since we have done it once already. At this point we can't post pictures or share specific information due to confidentiality but hopefully within the next month or two we will be able to show you our precious son.
Please continue to pray for us as we change directions in our journey. Pray for our son as he waits in the orphanage. Above all else, please continue to pray that God will be glorified in all that we do and say and that this journey will continue to encourage others to become more involved in adoption.
We are so thankful for each and every one of you.
God is Good,
Danny and Bethany
