Immeasurably More

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. 


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.

We wondered.

We cried.


He had a much greater agenda in mind.

Not just Kirill... Not just Kirill....

Much Bigger.

Much Greater.

Stand up and shout out because people, God has done Great Things today.

Great things indeed!


  1. Oh Amen! I have been a blubbering mess over this amazing news! God is so so good!

  2. Well I just cried tears of joy!!

  3. I screamed and cried, and prayed and hallelujahed all over the place today...God sure was showing off today, wasn't He? I love it, every bit!

  4. God did send a Mighty Message! Glory to His Name!

  5. I was screaming and my hubby was yelling we were so stinking excited when we read the news. Only God could do this. And what a victory for the adoption of these little ones with disabilities. Can't wait to see what's going to happen now. Hugs

  6. It's so hard when we can't see the final outcome and then say Wow, you are a GREAT GOD! This is so encouraging- Thank you Jesus!

  7. that is amazing news.. I'm so happy for both families :) and for future families traveling there. :)

  8. Amen and Hallelujah. He is good. SO GOOD!

  9. Oh, so grateful... so grateful!

  10. To God be the glory! Great things He has done!

    Celebrating with you,



Loving words from kind people make our hearts glad!
