Overheard

May 22nd, 2011

I emailed my “adoption midwife” Stephanie Carpenter to tell her there was no news yet from the USCIS.

She replied…

“Praying Isaiah 9:6 for you!!!

The government of the US and Katie’s country is upon His shoulders!!!!!”

This sweet girl is Laura.  She will be a young lady of twelve next month.  Her heart is very soft and responsive to the things of the Lord.

This afternoon…

Laura, to Jane:

“The lady from the government will soon decide if we’re allowed to adopt Katerina.”

Jane:

“I hope she says yes.”

Laura:

“…and the government shall be upon His shoulders…”

Mom, stopped in her tracks:

“What does that mean, Laura?”

Laura:

“It means that God is really the one in charge of the government.”

 

Share it!
