Touched. Moved. Inspired.

It has been months since my last update.  It hasn't been that I haven't wanted to, but I didn't know what to share.  In May we received our referral!  A beautiful, brown eyed baby boy who we fell in love with the moment we laid eyes on him.  We knew he was ours.  I'd love to share more information and pictures of him but we had to agree that we would not post details on social websites or on blogs.  So needless to say I took a long break from blogging to ensure I didn't slip up and spill the beans.  This week, almost 4 months after receiving the referral we heard the wonderful news that our son passed court!  We have prayed, we have had our parents praying, our church praying, our parents friends praying that this day would soon come.  Although, there are many more steps to go through before we can bring our son home, this is a huge milestone that brought joy to our hearts.

Tonight, as I was looking on other adoption blogs, someone had posted a video on adoption.  It took me by surprise.  It was so real.  It touched my soul.  It makes me want to take action immediately and it inspired me to realize that each and every one of us can make a difference.  We are called by Him to take care of orphans, we hear this and even repeat it to others but what are we doing about it?

Take a moment to watch this video.
I hope that it touches your heart, moves your spirit and inspires you to take action.
