Fear NOT!

I'm sure you've all seen the news and know that major things are going on in Hannah's country. We got an email from Robin not to be worried, the children are safe. I trust the Lord to watch over her, that the angels do surround and protect her.

Robin called Friday when I was on my way to pick up some friends to go to Branson. Buddy and Samuel had gone earlier in the day with Chad, and C, C & I were picking up Heather and their daughter. First time to their house by myself (while I was hearing stories about Hannah) and got totally turned around! Anyway, the stories are that Hannah and her foster brother are very sweet together. There is a baby there, also, who is slightly younger than Caleb, and she really likes the baby alot. We don't really know about feeding or potty habits, yet, but it sounds like she's a spunky girl who will be a joy for our family.

We know that it's pretty sad, looking at the news, but we're trusting the Lord to take care of her, as He IS the Father to the fatherless, and going on with preparation for our travels. We have our CPR class Sunday and are getting our kitchen/dining area ready to paint!!! That's a HUGE deal on my list, not because it's a big project, just been waiting a while for it to be "time."

Final thought are from Isaiah- "Fear not; for I am with you: be not dismayed: for I am your God: I will strengthen you: yes, I will help you: yes, I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness." "Fear not: for Iam with you: I will bring your seed from the east, and gather you from the west." It's pretty clear what my orders are and what He is doing.

Great news. I've been wondering how this was affecting adoptions.

No doubt that your little Hannah is going to be protected by God.
And yes, she is a spunky little thing. As you know, when we met her, it was love at first site. She has a personality that wraps you around her finger immediately.
