Thank you, thank you, thank you to all who have prayed for the Shubins and for Zahra as God does the work of knitting their lives together via adoption (don't stop now!), who have contributed financially to help knock down the obstacle of fees standing between little Z and her family, who have written notes of encouragement along the way, or have become a part of this story in some other way. What a privilege God has given us! When we were in the process of adopting our son Paul, we set up an account that we named "One Less Orphan." One more "less" at a time is a big part of our family mission...seeing orphans grafted into Christian homes where they will be raised up to know, love, enjoy, and serve the King of all kings is our family's middle name, you might say. So we're rejoicing today because after a year of praying and working and encouraging, we know that in a couple short weeks now there will be "one less!"
On another happy note, this past week my girls and I got to spend some time with another little one you may have read about at Christmastime on my blog. She has an amazing story too! I'll leave you with just a few pics:
