Our precious Father cares about every little detail of our lives. He loves to orchestrate connections between people and to intertwine their life stories with one another. In fact, I think that He takes particular pleasure in creating relationships through unique circumstances that only He could bring about!

Throughout each of our adoption journeys, God has placed special people in our path at just the right time. We have been amazed by the way that our wonderful Father knows exactly what we need, and often takes care of that need through someone whom we didn't even know just a few days (or even hours or minutes) earlier.

In our adoption of R., our dear Father is out-doing Himself. He is bringing together people and places in absolutely extraordinary ways. I am astounded by the many, many connections that could only come about by His intervention.

I wish that I could share each part of every single one of these connections with you. The numerous stories would leave you in awe of the One who finds great pleasure in weaving together every aspect of our lives to create a beautiful tapestry of love. Unfortunately, the stories will have to wait until after R. is home with us. But, for now, let me introduce you to a new friend:  Her name is Kristen.

A couple of weeks ago, I was browsing through the Ordinary Hero blog, looking into fundraising options for a friend, when I clicked on one blog on the sidebar. I was in a bit of a time crunch, so I literally have no idea why I clicked on that blog. But friends, God knows and He cares...He cares about every detail of our lives.

You see, Kristen is adopting from Ind*a (and Congo!). If that were the only thing that we had in common, I'd still have been excited, as there really aren't that many people adopting from Ind*a. But, there is so much more! (Oh, how I wish that I could share the whole story, so you could see how much our God cares about the details of our lives!) Just know that the story is a good one, and you will hear it one day.

But in the meantime, hop on over to Kristen's blog, pray for the two precious sweethearts who are waiting for her on the other side of the world, and marvel with me in the way that our dear Father connects us with one another at exactly the moment that we need it.

Oh my goodness, isn't our Father wonderful?!

I'm so glad He continues to lead you to these "connections" in your latest adoption journey. I'm so glad He lead me to "meet" you and your family on our journey 4 years ago. I love all the "connections" we've encountered along the way!!!!

Kristen said...

AMEN!!!!! I've been thanking our Father every day since our beautiful connection! I like what my mom said, "Kristen, you've found a kindred spirit!" I keep giggling when I think about the time when we get to share the whole story! Mind blowing!!!

The Lord is absolutely amazing....watching the story unfold, and seeing how He works out even the tiniest detail is so incredible!

God is so good to us. I'm so glad when He allows us to see the tapestry He is weaving upon our behalf.

I love this! God never leaves any detail out, He knows our desires and our hearts and proves His love over and over!
Excited to meet a fellow indie mom as well :)

For some reason my phone won't let m log into Wordpress!
