Making fish faces!
He is so cute when he makes faces. Ok... all the time he is adorable!
Precious Yuri cuddling with daddy and listening to music.
Josh was gently touching him with a washcloth and Bohdan ate it up. He laughed and laughed.
Yuri was much more comfortable today. Each day we are seeing so much progress with both of the boys and we treasure every minute we are with them.
See how comy he looks just sitting? What a sweet heart! They both are taking to this lovin' thing quite well!
One of Yuri's favorite songs to listen to, which I think is quite appropriate, is........ I realize now I don't know the title but here are some of the lyrics.
"but the voice of truth tells me a different story, the voice of truth says do not be afraid. The voice of truth says this is for My glory. Out of all the voices calling out to me. I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth." As he was cuddling in Daddy's lap, listening to this, God used these words to speak to me. In our small group the question came up, "Why did God allow things (reading Genesis and Exodus) to happen?" While reading the book 'Radical' by David Platt we found the answer. We were made for His glory! All this is for His glory!
I now realize there is something worse than waiting longer, I've been begging for a speedy court but never took into to account the lost souls encountered along the way. Isn't that just as or more important than a quick court or waiting an extra 10 days, or any amount of money that we might lose by missing work. I admit anger and fear have been blinding me to the real needs here. If the good news could be spread wouldn't that in turn fix the rest of the situation? I don't know if we are the ones to do this, I could barely order a pizza today, but who knows what God has planned.
Please continue to pray and add to your prayer list everyone involved with my boys and their adoption that they would hear the good news and how much Jesus loves them!! To God be all the glory and ONLY He and His love can change hearts and minds.
