"Trust in the Lord with ALL your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In ALL your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight."
At the beginning of October, Daniel's mom asked us if there were certain scriptures we had been praying for our adoption or Little A. At the time there was not a specific verse or verses but it caused us to pause and to begin thinking about what verses we would like to have represent our adoption journey.
Eleanor was quite adamant that we should use Proverbs 3:5-6. She had recently learned these verses at school and she wanted them to be our adoption verses. At first I was not sure these were the verses we should use but I soon realized these were the perfect verses to pray over our adoption journey. I want our adoption story to be God’s story. I want to trust God to lead us to our Little A. We had already taken great steps of faith and I want us to continue to live lives that are characterized by trusting God even when things do not look as we had expected.
