Pride and Fear



Dear Ones:

The following is my journal entry from this morning. It is very vulnerable so I ask for gentle responses. I also ask for continued prayer as this journey is more than an adoption journey. It is a learning and faith journey:

Dear father,
I have pride and fear. I have been so frustrated with having to depend on you Lord. I have wanted to be self sufficient and make things happen on my own. I have had so much fear that you will not come through for us. My grumblings have been eating up my faith. Father forgive me. I know my faith impacts my children's future, Elijah, Noah, Zion, Canaan, and Mercy.
Regardless of my circumstances Father I want to please you. I know I have failed you. Forgive me. I choose this day - every day to serve you. I want habitual fellowship not habitual failure. Please accomplish your will in my life, in my family's lives, in this adoption. Be my provider. Forgive and cleanse my heart. Open the eyes of my heart so I can recognize you at work Father.

"My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please... What I have said, that will I bring about; what I have planned that will I do."
Isaiah 10b & 11b

Father forgive me and increase my faith and trust in you. Please help my pride and my fear.

The Roller Coaster continues

Dear ones:

Maybe we will have a Guatemalan miracle after all... Please Pray!

The department of State has released the following statement:

Lic. Elizabeth Hernandez De Larios, President of the Directive Council of the National Council on Adoption (CNA), confirms that the CNA will not accept any new adoption cases at this time. The halt is to enable CNA to work on establishing guidelines to use in accrediting agencies for intercountry adoptions and to focus on completing transition cases.

The CNA indicates that there were 883 cases that were not submitted by August 31, 2008 deadline for the verification process. Those cases will be turned over to the Guatemalan courts as abandonment cases. In order to ensure that those cases get quick attention, CNA felt it was necessary to stop accepting new cases at this time.

Lic. De Larios does not view the halt as long term and expects that CNA will be ready to complete Haugue requirements by January 2009. More info about CNA's decision may be found on its website, http;//www.cna.gob.gt

On a more personal note I just want to share about my Canaan. He had been tucked into bed tonight and after a while came down the stairs crying and upset. I thought maybe he had a bad dream or something but when I asked him what was wrong he told me through tears "I miss Mercy." Can you believe that? My 5 year old little sweetie. Big brother Zion then said he missed her too and prayed the most precious prayer for Canaan and Mercy. Oh do I know how they feel. I am being "still" so I can "know" He is God. I am yearning and waiting for Him to speak, lead, direct, and provide. Please keep us and our journey in your prayers.



Blessings!
