As some of you are aware, my wife and I are in the process of attempting to adopt a child(ren) from Mexico. One of the great benefits is our consistent travel here and the opportunity to keep (him/her/them) connected to where they are from.

Thursday was a wonderful and long day.  Hopefully I will have time later today to write more about.  But to my surprise when I arrived back in town last night, a meeting was arranged with the Justice of the area to discuss the adoption.  We have been praying that the process would be smooth and not take as long as it normally does.  Perhaps this meeting is an answer to that prayer.

For my wife Claire and I, adoption is part of what Jesus has called us to in our lives…as we seek to be obedient to God’s general command to love our neighbors as ourselves and His specific command to help orphans.  Jesus came to give us life and life more abundant.  What joy is ours!
