Happy Dependence Day!

As we celebrate our nation's 232nd birthday, let us not forget just how dependent we are on our Heavenly Father. If the adoption hold-ups and family crises have taught us anything, it's that we cannot do anything apart from Him.

    Psalm 121:1-2
    I lift up my eyes to the hills.
      From where does my help come?
    My help comes from the Lord,
      who made heaven and earth.

    Jeremiah 29:11
    For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

    Philippians 4:13
    I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
Happy Dependence Day, everyone!

I just spent a bunch of time with Patricia and also with Philipe and they are both dear children. Philipe is not one of the more aggressive children and it took him a while to approach me while I was doing crafts with the older kids but he did join us.
