8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.”
I’m not sure I will ever be able to comprehend all God has done to bring Janie to our family. It all started with Him making my heart ache for “Lili”. I will forever be grateful to two women who were willing to let God use them and to share their stories on their blogs. I “met” both Diana and Jennifer through their blogs and started sponsoring “Lili” from reading about Pearl River Outreach on Diana’s blog. We had emailed over the years about various things but when I emailed her on New Years Eve 2010, I believe God set into motion what He has known all along. My simple question was ” what are the chances of being able to adopt “Lili”?”
As the weeks went by I had also been following Jen’s blog and read how they were starting the adoption process again. I called Diana one Saturday, while trying to make the decision of what agency we needed to go with, and find out that Jen had just been able to get the file of her child she had been praying for, Gracie. It was that little glimmer of hope that pushed us forward and take that leap of faith to “go for it” and we knew what agency to go with. We knew that God could do it , but was that his will for us or not? We figured we will never know unless we were willing to try, so try we did!
Well, obviously we all now know that it is His will for Janie to become our daughter and sister. I am so very thankful to Diana’s and Jen’s willingness to share their stories and of course the millions of answers they have both given me over this past year:) From please go enjoy a glass of wine, to you definitely need head phones, they have herded me along this path. So dear sweet friends, I thank you for the part you graciously took along with God in brining my precious Janie home. Hugs to you both!
