My God Has an Endless Breath

These words stood out to me in an adoptive mom's blog today - her son's file exited IBESR in less than two months!! And she was praising God in her blog entry (shared below). Miracles do happen in Haitian adoption ... Please keep praying for that "bureaucratic miracle" of our own!

OUT of IBESR

we heard glorious news yesterday…….our dossier has been approved by IBESR and will be ready to enter Parquet followed by MOI….. what makes this glorious?……….i wasn’t expecting to be OUT until at the least this october………we are out in less than 2 months…this is exceptional……….while i am ecstatic for us my heart hurts for those waiting…………still waiting…..unlike china adoptions where everything runs in an order and you know where you are in that order….. haitian adoptions……well have no order………………but with our good news my hope is that the process in haiti is becoming smoother …….i know god is working big time down there for obstacles are being removed…….slowly…slowly…… i believe haitian adoptions will work the kinks out…and there will not be a wondering what to expect……this will take time……and prayer…. and hope……..

i also want to say almost every night in prayers we ask for perfect paperwork that sails through the system…..so far the wind has been strong…..and my god has an endless breath……when we pray i think sometimes we forget to be specific…..don’t be afraid to go all detailed on god…..he is in the fine lines………..i was in shock at our news yet i felt the spirit tingle up my neck…..i knew it was a god moment……he is defining this adoption and i am watching him take care of the details……..trusting in him is hard…but it is so worth it….and so so sweet………….

oh steph, i am trying to praying for you and the adoption EVERY DAY. thanks for always reminding us how difficult it is cause sometimes i get so caught up in my "trials" that i forget to pray for others. i have to admit the past 2 weeks i have not been good about that but i promise to be praying for your alls entire adoption to be completed in record time!
