It has been one of those days. The kind of day where you seriously don't want to miss the happenings.
The kind of day when you stand back in shock and awe at what GOD HAS ACCOMPLISHED.
After hearing about Brady passing court this morning I had to leave to teach at our Homeschooling Co-op. Being a responsible adult really stinks sometimes!!! Walking out the door without knowing what was happening was THE HARDEST thing to do. I wanted to sit by the computer and refresh the screen every 2 minutes. I just didn't want to leave. So I e-mailed a friend who WAS sitting by the computer and refreshing the screen every 2 minutes and begged her to call me when she heard anything.
Halfway to Co-op she called. And I screamed. And cried. And had my boys thinking I definitely was losing all my marbles. Oh how sweet the news. Kirill is an orphan no more.
The unthinkable happened - The Supreme Court in Kirill's country overturned the ruling of the judge.
To God Be The Glory - Great Things He Has Done!
Two little boys. Two little castaway boys. Going home.
Can we take a moment and give God a standing ovation?
Brady's adoption opens wide that institute. A YES was said inside that village. A child with Down Syndrome has been given a family.
109 more Lost Boys have just been given hope.
And people... Kirill's adoption..... Oh My Goodness.... Do You Understand What Happened????
The message this sends to every judge in that country who is tempted to deny an adoption of a child with special needs is unbelievably profound.
MOUNTAINS ALL OVER THAT COUNTRY HAVE JUST HAD PATHS CUT RIGHT THROUGH THEM.
God did IMMEASURABLY MORE than we could ever have asked or imagined.
We wanted Kirill to find a home.
We grieved that he was left behind.
We questioned why God would allow that judge to say no.
He had a much greater agenda in mind.
Not just Kirill... Not just Kirill....
Stand up and shout out because people, God has done Great Things today.
Great things indeed!
