I woke up to a phone call from a friend with THE most amazing news — US families were being given exit permits to leave with their adopted children from Congo!
We still don’t know how this will affect us specifically and what the timelines will look like for our daughter to FINALLY come home but, oh my heart, this is HUGE!!! Families are being reunited and hope is on the horizon for us all!!! God is on the move and justice is breaking forth as families that have been separated across an ocean are finally going to be together at last!!!!
Last year, I had the month of June pressed upon my heart… I just knew it was going to be a huge month. And, it was. Our girl was moved from her orphanage to foster care. She finally knew the love of a family and she started to heal physically and emotionally. It was a HUGE month.
But, this June. This June could be IT.
This could be the month that she is in our arms forever. She will finally be in a family forever.
Every child deserves to be known and loved and have a foundation of trust… these precious children coming home deserve nothing less. They deserve to be tucked in at night and showered in kisses. They deserve the innocence of childhood. They deserve full bellies and a safe place to lay their head at night. Please continue to pray for the children of Congo. For the orphaned and abandoned. For the ones waiting for their families to come for them. Please pray for the exit permits to continue to be issued and for things to move forward quickly for all waiting families!!! Thank you for joining us in prayer on this long, rocky, broken, beautiful road… we are so very grateful!!!
