The power of prayer

I had no idea how the waiting game would drive me crazy. I spend most of my days reading forums and posts from websites regarding Guatemala, wondering everytime the phone rings if it's my adoption agency calling. So I prayed today, like I do most days, but today I asked God if he could give me something, anything regarding our daughter, Faith, and he answered my prayer, just when I needed it the most. I recieved an email from our adoption agency and it contained an updated medical report for faith,, she seems to be doing well.

My daughter Paris who just turned seven says "that if you don't lie, God will answer your prayers, but if you do lie, he will hear your prayers, but he won't answer them". Just thought it was so cute.

Today, God answered my prayer

My very first post. I am not sure if what I am doing is correct, but I'm giving it a try anyways. This blog is all about our daughter Faith. She was born May 23, 2007. We recieved our refferal for her on August 2, 2007, she was a little over two months old at the time. It is now October and we are waiting to visit her, which probably won't happen until early december. The process has been grueling, not just for me, but for my husband who has to put up with me. I spend a lot, and I mean a lot of time looking for info, reading forums and blogs to keep me from going too crazy. I just want our little girl home with us. I read something to say stating that President Bergers "intent" to grandfathered in process adoptions is "official". The statement is confusing for me. My emotions have been all over the map. I try to stay strong for ALL our children, but it's difficult. i want our daughter home. Our family is not complete without her.
