I am completely overwhelmed at this moment. I almost have no words...almost. I have felt God's peace before but never like this. I do not feel I have ever heard God as loudly as today.

Most of you know I have been praying to soften Artie's heart about adoption. Tonight during American Idol, Artie tells me that he has something for me. He brought me this folded and crumpled piece of paper. Artie tells me that at work he had an overwhelming feeling that he needed to look up the Home Depot info about adoption. He said that he went right away and printed it off for me to read.

I have not brought up adoption in a while. I decided to step back and see where God led our hearts. Today I received my answer. Today I am so amazed. Today I heard God.

To top it off...I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow to see why we have not been able to conceive.

I saw your blog on the Riggs blog and stopped by....we adopted from Ethiopia--brought our daughter home in December. God had to work on my hubby's heart too. Stop by my blog and see my family and there's a video of our trip to Ethiopia near the bottom of the page. Maybe you and your hubby can watch it together--hint, hint.
