Yesterday we received some good news. A rather unspectacular envelope (I’m not sure exactly what I was expecting but I definitely thought it would be larger) came in the mail containing the document that gives us permission to bring a child born overseas into the United States. The name of the form is I-171H. This is a huge step forward and is the culmination of about 4 months worth of work.

This document puts us into a time when we’re only waiting for funds so that we can send it off to Ethiopia. We need about $6,000 to take that next step and we would invite you to join us as we pray for God to provide. God provided the money for us to get started and I know that He can provide the money we need to keep moving forward.

This is the most recent post from Dr. Albert Mohler. This story about adoption in Haiti isn't the story you think it is going to be and it certainly doesn't end the way you expect it to end. But it is a sad and beautiful picture of adoption. As Dr. Mohler says in his final paragraph, in the rubble of a hotel in Haiti we find a picture of the gospel of Christ.
