This week....

This week we should be getting news from Rose's country. We have been told that there is a letter on its way to our agency. After translation, we should know more about our next step in this journey. I am so grateful that we will be getting some sort of news - whether it be good or bad. The adoption 'limbo' is so difficult. We have so many plans for our future, but not knowing this next step makes panning impossible for this mommy. I need to have some sense of security when planning. Paul wants to make some pretty big changes in our near future - he's very content and secure in knowing that God has our best interests in mind. I pray that I will be given this gift. It's something I need to be reminded of daily right now.

I am so hopeful that this week will bring POSITIVE news.

God's will be done!

St Therese, Pray for us!

In honour of St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus of the Holy Face and to beg favours through her intercession.

O Father in Heaven, Who through St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus of the Holy Face, dost desire to remind the world of the Merciful Love that fills Thy Heart, and the childlike trust we should have in Thee, humbly we thank Thee for having crowned with so great glory Thine ever faithful child, and for giving her wondrous power to bring unto Thee, day by day, innumerable souls who will praise Thee eternally.
St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus of the Holy Face, remember thy promise to do good upon earth, shower down thy roses on those who invoke thee and obtain for us from God the graces we hope for from His infinite goodness.

Birthday Party

Since we couldn't celebrate with Rose yesterday, I decided to spend her 'birthday money' blessing families who are raising funds for their adoptions. 15 families got a teeny-tiny bump in their FSPs. It was the perfect way to celebrate her day and Easter, all at once!

I am researching mission work in Colombia.

If anyone has any information, please let me know. Extra points for Catholic based programs ;)
