As I prayed for this first sibling group we were presented with, I kept feeling like they were not the ones for us.
As I prayed that if God meant for us to parent them, that He would change my heart and prepare it for them.
I prayed that their hearts would be prepared for their new family and vise versa.
I pray for their safety and wellbeing at the orphanage.
And I prayed for a specific sign that God was either opening or closing the door to this sibling group. And God is so faithful! We learned that the orphanage did not send word that they have already been matched. They have a family who is in process to go get them. I can't help but smile and be so thankful and privileged to get to pray for these precious children by name and and having a face that goes with that over the next year as their adoption takes place! I may not know who their family is, bit God does. And I get to be an unknown prayer warrior for their story!
Praise God for this. And for the answered prayer of clear direction. And for the knowledge that He already knows who our children are. And that we can pray for them, even in whatever hardships they are facing.
