preparing heart and home

In about a week and a half Moses will move on to the next chapter of his journey.

We're all over the place with his impending departure. We are sad and happy, worried and hopeful, scared and excited, filled with dread and filled with relief.

Our complex human hearts can hold all of those emotions at once, or so it seems.

We are working on writing up everything there is to know about Moses and everything we can tell you about the ambiguous adoption process in Haiti and the program that will eventually be matching him to a mommy and a daddy.

While we work on getting that information together will you all pray that God does a mighty work in the hearts of Moses' future parents and that He begins even now to prepare them for the arduous journey ahead?  We know they are out there and we want to hold them in our prayers.

We continue to see Moses make great strides and much visible improvement.  We're thankful to Jesus for those answered prayers and fully expect that his growth and healing is only just beginning.  

When we think of the least of these ... When we think of Moses ...

We pray and ask for hope, we pray and ask for peace, we pray and ask for justice, we pray and ask for Jesus and we cry out ...  "Your Kingdom here and now. To the least of these. Let Your Kingdom come." 

amen amen amen amen

I cannot imagine all the emotions racing right now. I am excited yet sad as well. He's such a precious little guy! I'll continue praying for him & all involved (and to be involved)!

Praying for Moses and for ALL of his caregivers--past, present and future. May I add his name to our church prayer list?

Well for pitey's sake, I can't stop crying. This little man has captured my heart! I know he will always be so very special to Paige and all of you. It is hard to fathom the Father loves him even more. I do hope you are able to keep us posted on him! Can you say if he's going directly to a family or a transitional home first?

He is going to a creche (home for children during adoption) and we are hopeful that he will immediately be matched to a family ... he is a special boy and deserves a very special family.
