Our View on Adoption

Adoption is a wonderful metaphor for our salvation in Jesus. We are all adopted sons and daughters of God, brought fully into His family and loved unconditionally. We hope and pray that we honor God in this journey and come to know more deeply the depth of His love and our true identity in Him through this awesome experience.

"I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty." 2 COR 6:18

Anticipating a new year with Mateo

It is Jan. 2, and we are gathered at Mike's parents' house celebrating a belated Christmas with the Roberts. Mateo was very much with us in spirit as we anticipate next year's holidays with him. He even had a stocking and a few presents under the tree. All the sisters and girl cousins are ready to spoil him (or her) rotten.
Latest update on the referral: nothing came before the holidays, so we're likely looking at a referral sometime between Jan 11 and the end of the month, with travel probably in March. It could come later than that, but referrals have come quickly following approval recently. Hopefully the next posting is "the big one".
