Remember Will from our Waiting Child pages? Will spent a considerable amount of time on the Waiting Child list waiting for a family. Caitlin Edwards (Ethiopia Assistant Director) spent lots of time with Will while she was living in Ethiopia. She said Will asked her on a daily basis when he was going to get a family, and got very discouraged while she was there.
Well, guess what? Will now has a family! He is waiting for them to be able to bring him home. Our Ethiopia staff forwarded the message below from Will to his new family:
"He said he would like to thank you for choosing him and letting him to be a member of the family. He was very worried and lost his hope in God. He also told me that when he had heard the good news about his family, he couldn’t believe his ears and each day he thanks God for this blessing."
Wow, huh? This is what it is all about. We are so excited for Will and his family! Advocating for children just like Will who wait for a family on a daily basis is so vitally important.
If you are considering adoption but don't know where to begin, or if fear is keeping you from moving forward, seek God's wisdom and direction. There is no better place to be than in His will...just ask Will and his family.
