A friend of ours that is adopting through the same orphanage as we are shared this passage a week or so ago and I keep going back to it. Thank the Lord for giving us His word.
Romans 8:18-2818 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. 19 The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed. 20 For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God.
22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23 Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. 24 For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has? 25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.
26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. 27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God's will.28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

If you read this blog entry, please do me two favors: 1. Pray for our Christmas miracle and 2. Write a comment about something you are thankful for that God has taught you this year. (He has really worked on me about being thankful so I am focusing on that and some of the little trials in life don't seem so bad. i.e. - when my daughter "disappeared" in the store yesterday because she had run over to the price scanner to check how much her tights cost even though she can't read the numbers.)

We got pictures of him with his "no hair" haircut. I'll try to post some this weekend when I have time. Now that I am back to work, I have limited time on the computer.

You can get rid of stuff you don't need any more and get stuff you do need. The only money involved is that you pay to ship the items you are getting rid of. But when you "buy" something from someone they pay to ship it to you. It all works on a credit system. You do not exchange any money with other people. Use my referral code to start your account with 7 credits: WFMKXL. Try it out. Even if you don't do any transactions I think you still earn me codes by signing up with my referral code. I also posted a freebies site on the side of my blog.
One other site to check out is: http://freepeats.org/
I hope everyone can find some deals at these sites.
