Pretty soon weWill be giving Joseph's old foster mom a call to talk to her about her sibling group of three.

I am nervous. Nervous that she may think it is a great idea, nervous that she may not.

Having a newborn in the house has changed everything, but it hasn't changed the fact that those kids need a home and if God wants us to parent them we are willing to even if we think it is a little crazy too.

Don't get me wrong, we don't think we are the answer for these kids...we really are just willing. If it ends up being a closed door we would be at peace with it...probably disappointed mixed with relief....but more so at peace.

But, if God wants them here we will be excited, overwhelmed, thankful and terrified all at once...but, yet again, covered in God's peace.

I COMPLETELY understand all of these feelings and KNOW exactly where you are in your heart and mind about these children. I am at EXACTLY the same place about inquiring about a sibling group for our family. I haven't mentioned it on my blog and won't for a long time ,if ever. I only mention it here because I know you would understand and I would ask that you pray for our family. It makes no sense but at the same time it makes perfect sense, if it is God's will. Can't wait to see what God does in both of our families. :)

It's a wonderful feeling to have that peace that passes any understanding. Praying for the will of God for you.

There is no better place than being in the center of God's will! It will be crazy, but wonderful!
