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.”


“I hope she says yes.”


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

Mom, stopped in her tracks:

“What does that mean, Laura?”


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


Share it!
