We got our referral for baby R over 7 weeks ago. And we cannot move forward with his adoption until we get a referral for our little girl as well. It can be any day now. (As it has been for the past 7 weeks.)
People keep asking us what's the latest news, how is baby R doing?, etc...
... But we literally do not have ANY new information on him. Nothing since the day we found out that he was out of the hospital, that God had preserved his life from the serious case of malaria.
So we are just in another season of waiting. Waiting on the Lord. To act. To move. To execute justice for the orphan. To grant us a little girl. To help us adopt them. To bring our son and daughter home to their forever family.
So while we wait all we can do is pray. And so we pray. And we trust that baby R is in God's hands.
Can I tell you something cool?
His birth name means "Protecting Hands".
Isn't that amazing?
Already in the short 6.5 months of his life baby R has had God's protecting hands on him, even sparing him from death!
"Father of the fatherless and protector of widows is God in his holy habitation."
Praying and Waiting expectantly on the Lord,
