We have been forever changed by experiencing a faith-filled journey that first brought us our sweet Caitlin, then an adoption that ended in disappointment, and now one that placed us in the NICU with a sweet little baby boy. Never would we have chosen the disappointment and grief of losing children we had come to love and now worrying about the health of our new little addition, but God's plan has been to forever leave His mark of grace, brokenness, and freedom to obey even when we don’t understand. To Him be the glory for what He has done, and is doing, and will do!

With love and gratefulness to our Heavenly Father who has adopted us into His forever family, and to you, our family and friends,

Robert, Carlene and Caitlin Belue

God Knows the Plan

I am so grateful for the reminder this morning of Jeremiah 29:11 and of God's plan for hope and a future; both for us and for our kids in Colombia. While we are anxious to travel to meet them, we found out today that we still have another interview and a second home visit (since a year has passed since the first one) for the update to our homestudy. We should be able to complete those two things in the next two weeks. After that, we think we can apply for our immigration papers which usually takes about 6 weeks. As we wait and walk through the steps as they come, we know God has already determined when we travel and how He will provide all the necessary funds. Great is His faithfulness!
