A night of Hope

Saturday we were able to go to a Shaohannah's Hope fundraiser dinner. Our friends, the H family, were unable to attend the night and they so very sweetly invited us to go in their place. Katie Jo's heart was happy for us to get to go and be encouraged by people who love adoption.
It was such a neat event! We got to hear from Steven Curtis Chapman, Geoff Moore, Howard Dayton, and Kirk Cameron (yes, Growing Pains!).
We got to talk with another woman who has been trying to adopt two girls from El Salvador, but is not sure if it is going to happen. We were encouraged by her and by others we met in this wait for our children.

It was actually November of last year when we went to the agency meeting, hoping to hear that we could get started on our adoption from Honduras, only to find out that God had prepared a different path for us.

The LORD sat as King at the flood;
Yes, the LORD sits as King forever.
The LORD will give strength to His people;
The LORD will bless His people with peace.
Psalm 29:10-11
