Wednesday is a big day for us. It could be a critical day in whether we receive the miracle of holding our baby girl in 2010. We are asking friends and family to fast with us from 3pm CST today through 3pm CST tomorrow… this is a full Ugandan Wednesday. There are many kinds of fasts and a many things you can fast – not just food. We aren’t even sure yet what or how we will fast during this time! Please take part in whatever way you can!
Fasting is such a powerful way to confess to God that, just as we rely on Him more than even food or whatever else we may chose to fast, we also rely on Him ALONE to bring home Amelia… more than on agencies, or documents, or lawyers, or anything else. We know that fasting is meant to be private, but we are desperate for other believers to join us. If God is going to work a miracle, I want MANY to be involved and be in awe of His love and power when we finally hold Amelia.
Eight amazing friends threw Amelia a baby shower on Sunday. It was a beautiful expression of love for our girl, which I plan to write about in full soon. After the shower, I felt like I did after Caroline’s showers… full-term pregnant, and excited that the end is near. Move, Jesus, and let us go to our sweet Amelia soon!
