Julia's Family

Thank you for your prayers, emails, and comments. You guys are such an amazingly encouraging bunch! We were blown away with your quick response. Circumstances haven't changed a lot yet, but we're feeling much more at peace and our spirits are lifted. I'm not going to be able to reply to all the emails and comments individually, but I wanted you to know that we were so encouraged by you. Thank you so much for your love. We really can feel it.

And, in other exciting news... I had the opportunity to give Julia pictures of her adoptive family yesterday. It was great to be part of such a special moment with her... and so much fun to watch her excitedly sharing the news with everyone.

We know Julia's new family -- they're also from Texas! And, Julia will live very close to one of our other NDFH Grads, Leah Hope. Leah and Julia are both little people, and they were the best of friends here at the foster home. So the fact that they'll live just a few minutes from one another in the states is wonderful news!

Julia's pictures are so much fun to see because you can truly feel joy and excitement from them. She is a beautiful little girl and I am so glad that she will be so close to her dear friend Leah.

God is so good.

Carrie, I'm glad you and Jacob can feel all the prayers for you. I'm going to continue to pray for ya'll.

How great is it that Julia will live close to Leah. Of all the places she could've gone in the world... that's cool.

What a great God we serve who orchestrates all things, Julia and Leah being so close is a sweet blessing. And what JOY in her face looking at those pictures. I check the blog and foster site often and love to see these updates. I will be lifting you up in prayer.

God Bless,
