Joseph, you are wanted.

As I have been advocating for Joseph, I have all these thoughts running through my mind.

"Does anyone want Joseph as their son?"

"Why is there not a family who wants him?"

"God, can there please be a family who wants him???"

Sure enough, the Lord answers prayers!! PTL!!!I am proud to announce there is a family who is in the process of adopting Joseph. They have just recently found an agency and are starting up on the piles of paper work!

Prayer requests!!
-This family would like you to pray for the Lord's will. This is a big step to go forward into this process adopting an older boy so they need all the wisdom from the Lord they can get!
-They also need pray financially that God would provide the money.

I have been chatting with them over email and they sound to me like a pretty neat family. I am so thankful that this young family is willing to take a big leap of faith in bringing Joseph into their lives.

As for this blog, I will now be posting updates and prayer requests from the family.

It is now our job to keep praying for Joseph's adoption process. Pray the family will be able to finish the paperwork before he turns 14.
"Joseph, you have a family who wants you!!!!!!"
