Adoption from the Democratic Republic of the Congo

At the moment, the Lord has led our family toward adoption from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).  Liz and I are excited about beginning the process with One World Adoption Services out of Georgia.  We feel like this opportunity has many questions still to be answered, but we feel comfortable beginning the process and seeing where the Lord takes us and how he will providentially help us complete the adoption.  We would ask that you continue to pray for us during this process.  We will be sending updates and letters soon telling how you can help be a part of our adoption from the DRC.  In the meantime, I would recommend to you a book by Dr. Russell Moore called Adopted for Life (  Liz and I are reading through the book now, and in it, Dr. Moore lays out a solid foundation about the biblical mentality behind adopting. Even if you are not considering adopting a child, I would recommend the book to you.  It will help even to understand and appreciate our adoption in Christ.  We would love to hear from any of you who have adopted or are planning to adopt.  We would love to pray with you through your process as well.  May God be glorified through care for the orphans.
