Reeces Rainbow

One day while I was scanning the pages of children on Reece's Rainbow I came across a profile that made my heart leap.  It was our son!  He is listed on their site by Lifeline Christian services as "Walter".  After contacting RR and confirming it was indeed our little guy, his profile was moved to my family found me status.  We have not yet set up our FSP, but we will soon.  We are still in the process of gathering the funds for our agency fee and then we will be able to do the love offering and paperwork needed to get that going.  We were also given permission by All Blessings to share Walter's picture for the RR page.  We will then be able to post a link on the blog for tax deductible donations to the FSP.  Our court documents have also been submitted recently.  Now we wait for a court date.  The other piece of good news is that we had our 1st of several Skype visits with Walter!  I have to admit I was a little nervous to meet him and worried about what to say or even if he would like us.  I know....I worry a little too much!

This worry was for NOTHING!  He showed us toy cars, made silly faces at us and rambled on and on.  He really did not want the translator there, he just wanted to talk with us, which considering he was speaking Manderin, was well....entertaining at the least!  The boys kept going to get cars to show him and even the model of the helicopter Chris works on.  It all made his eyes sparkle.  For 40 minutes that boy did not stop smiling!  It was pure joy and for the next several days I don't think I could stop smiling either.  When it was time to go the translator was trying to explain to him that Momma and Papa had to put brothers to bed and that it was late.  That was ok with him EXCEPT he wanted us to come right back so we could talk some more.

We are indeed Momma and Papa to him already, that needed no translation!

Please continue to pray for God's timing and provision as we venture along this crazy and faith building thing called ADOPTION!

"Humble yourselves, therefore,
under God's mighty hand,
 that he may lift you up in due time.
Cast all your anxiety on him
 becuase he cares for you."  1Peter 5:6-7
