Glimmers

Have you ever been going through something and feel that you are in limbo..that how could possibly God be at work? Ah, the lesson of my life. 🙂 God is making Himself known to me, and to you, every single day; unfortunately sometimes I fail to see Him because I am looking at life through my own eyes, not His. And, how He always brings me back to perspective. So thankful for His grace.
One of the things that I have shared with some of you that has been hard for me is to not have any physical reminders of our sweet baby..no pictures of ultrasounds, etc. Adam and I have to constantly remind ourselves that on the other side of our mountain of paperwork is Hope/Noah. One of my dear prayer partners  gave me a whole new way of viewing this struggle. She told me that each of the kids on my caseload represent Hope and Noah..that when I look at these children I can see my own children. What perspective!
I was assigned 2 1/2 week old twin girls to my caseload this week..I was able to help bring one of them home from the hospital to her new foster home. How beautiful are these little girls. I went to visit them yesterday and was helping feeding one of them. She fell asleep on my lap and I couldn’t help think about where Hope/Noah is right now. Looking at this tiny baby helped me see our little one and just consumed me with love and happiness. Isn’t God so faithful?


 

Last night, Adam and I received the pictures of the children that our church will be serving in Moldova in the fall. They, too, helped me see Hope/Noah…the children of Moldova who are forgotten and are desperately in need of families. Their eyes helped me see our kids. How I cannot wait for the fall for Adam and I to be in our second home:)  Adam and I are beyond excited for what God has in store for us.
Here are some of our favorite pictures from our past trips. We just love these kids:)

Praying your day is also filled with glimmers of God’s goodness and faithfulness in your life…that you don’t miss His Voice guiding you and His hands protecting you. He is a God of mercy, grace, and compassion. We have so much to be thankful for.

  1. Although I understand how hard it is not to have biological children, there is something amazing about loving a child that needs someone to love them and put them first-however that might play out. This is such a great perspective in your time of waiting to bring home your forever child!

  2. Oh Colleen… how beautiful those “Glimmers” are! I am in love with the sparkle in their eyes… the smiles on their faces… and the picture of the girl praying is such a gorgeous portrait of the ultimate blessing Hope/Noah will receive… a home where God's love reigns… a home that will usher them into a faith-filled, exciting life… a safe place to dream big dreams… a home that will be theirs with their forever parents. You and Adam make my heart swell with love and hope! I love you both!

  3. Hi, I just found your blog searching for blogs about adopting from Moldova. 🙂 We lived there for 2 years (moved back to America last June) and are now starting to talk about adopting from Moldova. If you ever have any questions about the country or culture, feel free to ask.

    I'm sorry the government is having such a hard time getting its act together regarding adoption. It's actually just having a hard time getting its act together in general… hopefully that will end soon. I look forward to seeing how things go for your family!
