Monroe Has a Family!!
Written by Meredith Cornish....
God has touched his family’s hearts and spoken to them! He used their pastor, this Sunday, to confirm the call. Not having spoken with their pastor yet, they had just prayed that God would use someone on Sunday morning to give confirmation one way or another about whether they were supposed to adopt Monroe.

You see, when it’s not a question of “can we” but instead “should we,” the answer is sometimes difficult! Monroe’s family was waiting for that little extra push from God that says “yes”. And this is what they heard in the middle of their sermon on Sunday:

“This picture I took represents to me the broad path and the narrow path, and all of us have opportunities to make decisions. Today, when you leave here, you’re going to have the opportunity to make a decision, this week you’re going to have all kinds of opportunities to make decisions. Will you choose the path of least resistance, the broad path, or are you going to trust your heart into God’s hands and follow him into whatever path He leads you in? It’s a matter of trust, and you cannot have love without trust. God wants us to learn to trust him. His ways are higher than our ways, his thoughts higher than our thoughts and when we learn to trust him because of His love, it’s easier to follow him, down the road. Learning to live in God’s love…”

At that point in the service they looked at each other and laughed, knowing that God had provided the confirmation and peace-at-heart that they had prayed He would provide, and on Sunday afternoon they committed to Monroe!

Still wondering who that family is? Or… were YOU at church with us on Sunday? :)

YES, WE ARE ADOPTING MONROE! :) (Mereidith Cornish)

In the first week that he was available, I didn’t even read his profile. I saw his photo, announced his grant, and was amazed to hear he didn’t have that family I thought he would have in 48 hours. It wasn’t until I sent out my second plea on my bl0g that I went and read more into his profile and looked at the older photos of him. Then, prompted by Shelley and Lyndi (yes, I blame them LOL), I sent a link to
