fostering a grateful spirit

tears of joy {day 11}

today I am grateful for the ways that God is working in the lives of my friends Kristen and Joel. I have known them for a long time, since they were leaders in my youth group. it has been a blessing to watch God bring them together in marriage, and I have been especially blessed to follow their journey to adopt a young boy from the Ukraine. the post I read this morning was mostly the story of the last week and Kristen’s thoughts and excitement FROM THE AIRPLANE. TO THE UKRAINE. TO MEET THEIR SON. seriously, I can’t think of anything cooler. they finally get to talk to, hug, see this boy that they have loved for so long without even having met him. and for him…this precious boy, who is in his last year of being adoptable (in the Ukraine), who will get to meet his parents, people who love him, have been preparing for him, praying for him, WAITING FOR HIM. not just for a son, but specifically for him. how freaking cool is that?!?!
(I am crying again as I write this, just in case anyone is keeping track…)
anyway, of you guys would join me in praying for Kristen and Joel, for their meeting with their son tomorrow morning, and for all of their hearts. as we all have experienced, even the most amazing changes can be very difficult. there is also a possibility that they will be bringing home another son whom they don’t yet know. please pray for all those crazy pieces, and that there will be thousands of tears of joy in the next few days.
