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 is at work

Waiting....and waiting some more; sometimes with nothing visibly happening. However, we are confident of one thing; God is at work, accomplishing His purposes on our behalf, to bless us and grow us, and bring Him all the glory, and to place us in Colombia at just the right time. We are enjoying our weekly skype calls with the kids, and waiting on some reports to be completed so we can file for their immigration approval which should be about a 10 day process. Keep praying! We appreciate you!

Skype Call

We were able to Skype with our kids in Colombia yesterday morning! :) They were very excited and so cute! We learned that Oscar likes the colors blue and green and likes to eat chicken and rice, Laura is excited about having a pool and wanted to make sure we knew she is almost 8, :) and Daniela likes the color red and likes to eat salad (she also kept saying "mama")! Caitlin enjoyed seeing them!
We are set up to talk to them every Monday afternoon so we are so grateful!
