Benefit Concert- POSTPONED

This morning we woke up to some much-needed, God-pleasing rain and a weather radar indicating a huge front was moving over Nashville. We decided to cancel the concert for tonight and reschedule for another day. All of the musicians were so understanding and ready to jump back into it...whenever that will be. It's been so good to plan this- seeing people offer their time and posessions and ideas and help- that I kind of can't wait to do it again!
We'll keep you posted. concert.draines.com.

Psalm135: 6-7
The LORD does whatever pleases him,
in the heavens and on the earth,
in the seas and all their depths.

He makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth;
he sends lightning with the rain
and brings out the wind from his storehouses.

July 29th Benefit Concert

Check out concert.draines.com to find out more!
Proceeds from the concert will help us with some of the upcoming adoption fees as well as support La Providencia. We are excited to partner with this ministry because, in a way, it was through our relationsip with them that we came to adopt our girl. (I'll be sure to write more about that in a later post.)

Timeline update

Through an email from our ES family coordinator we found out that the current wait time for a referral has shifted from 10 months to 12-14 months. She also added that it could change again, to increase or decrease, along our journey.
A friend commented on the day count I've been keeping. Maybe I should go ahead and change that to months...or weeks. ? Hm. Either way you count it, we are praying for that unexplainable peace and the wisdom for waiting rightly.
