Meeting in the making!

In less than 24 hours we will be boarding a plane to Ghana, Africa to meet our daughter!

The day has finally come!

I can’t tell you what kind of emotional messes Christy and I have been since we got the call a couple weeks ago. Even if it were possible, there are not enough bottles in the world to contain the anxiety, joy, fear and excitement emotions we are experiencing.

I don’t think it’s any coincidence that this morning as I was gathering up all the items I normally put in my pockets, that I noticed a piece of paper in my “stuff” basket. I don’t know why I picked up, but I did. It contained the words of a friend of mine I wrote down about a year ago. Scott Coleman, adoptive father of 3 beautiful children from Uganda said, “We are all part of this big equation. On one end there are kids needing fathers. And on the other end is us. The question is what are we going to do about it?”

Tomorrow is that day for us!

Please continue to pray for us on this journey! This is something that we literally could not
have done without the support of a countless number of people.

And we literally could not do this without the divine intervention of God. We are so far out on the limb right now we could not possibly complete this journey unless God steps in. Our only other choice is to fall. And you know what? Way out there on the limb is exactly where He wants us!! This position ensure complete dependence.
