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

Looking to Jesus

Have you ever taken steps of obedience, by faith, and then wondered if you have the faith to finish the path where those steps are taking you? That's where I am today. Knowing full well, and confident that God's plan is being perfectly crafted through this adoption, but not having the strength in myself to keep up that faith that got me here. That's why Jesus took me to Hebrews 12:1,2 yesterday, knowing I needed to hear Him say,"Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith..." I am so grateful that Jesus will "finish" my faith and give me the daily strength to run this particular race. May we all continue to "Look unto Jesus" until He comes or calls us home!
