"Am I cute or what?"


Today I had a conversation with a family that has really rocked me to the core....and I am begging y'all to be praying. I am beginning to think the Lord wanted me to be here in Guatemala early for many different reasons. I love those conversations that when you walk away....you just know it was the Lord's hand bringing you together.

I just walked back into the room to see sweet Eliana asleep on Chris. It melts my heart!!

Love y'all,
Lindsey

"There has never been a cuter picture ever"- direct quote from Corby... I think his niece already has his heart!

She gets more and more precious with every pic you post. She looks so happy, and I can just imagine what the faces on the other side of the camera must look like. I will pray that the Lord continues to reveal His full purpose of your time in Guat. Can't wait to meet your baby girl.

Lindsey- it is such a joy to see all these pictures of Eliana and you guys. It's just right, ya know? I'm just so glad you're down there right now. I've loved reading each post. Praise God for His timing, His provision, His sovereign hand. I seriously can't wait to see His plan unfold for her. Love you so much, friend. Never hesitate to email Jason about medical questions! He doesn't mind at all.

suzanne mayernick said...

wow! what a ride! what a great feeling to not just "think", but to "know" that God is in control of this whole situation?! What a load off! That's why adoption stories are so awesome. You LITERALLY see HIS fingerprints ALL OVER the situation. We are continually praying for you guys. He is SOVEREIGN! right back into PGN huh? isnt that just amazing!? LOL!!

The Heinrichs said...

Okay you know Eliana is just too cute but your post is leaving me hanging!!!

Love Deanna

Melissa said...

Anna said...

Your sweet girl Eliana is just a 'doll'. She looks SO gorgeous in that photo. It is wonderful to see her looking well and so happy too!

Praying things are ok with that family you met too. Its amazing how God works things out with us in the right place at the right time to fulfil his purposes isn't it!

Take care,
Anna

How wonderfully amazing the gift you are giving Eliana by fostering her during the last leg of the adoption! Praying the Lord will continue to bless you and affirm your decision each day!

Lindsey and Chris -

I have not been able to check in on you guys in awhile. Jess told me about Eliana being sick. I am so thankful that she is well again.

I can't imagine what you felt during that time. She is beautiful...so so beautiful. Praying that PGN will move quickly so you can get home. But as you've mentioned God has a plan for you there right now. Enjoy your time with your little blessing.

I love the look of your blog by the way. As I read your title again I thought how appropriate it is. This has truely been a battle but Jesus is Lord and His plans will be accomplished!

I love you!
Jami
