It's been said that God answers prayers "no", "yes", and "wait awhile."

We know that God has a lot more to say than just that. But our newest new parents, graduates of our Piggybackers orientation weekend of 11/08, can surely find those three answers engraved in the stones that marked their path from Iowa to Texas over the past year or so.

They'd married with a strong sense of God's approval, which lent them a divine sense of certainty that children would soon follow. Yet it wasn't working out that way, and despite their fervent prayers for a successful pregnancy, the answer appeared to be "no..."

Still, they had faith that God was calling them to build a family, so they began to explore adoption, aided by some dear friends who were following their own dream of parenthood towards an adoption agency in Texas. Should they join them in that journey, they wondered? And the answer was clearly "yes."

So it was that they found themselves on a voyage that led them through valleys of sorrow and along highest peaks of joy, to a young woman who needed them there when she gave birth; they followed along faithfully hoping her newborn was meant to be theirs, as well. But God's answer to that petition, to their surprized disappointment, was "wait awhile." They returned home with an empty carseat, and that child returned Home not long thereafter.

It didn't make sense at the time, surely. But being people of faith, they didn't give up on their dream-- nor their God. And God's best miracles being reserved for those who walk by faith, this providential path has led them to the amazing events of today, as a mother they'd first spoken with this past weekend forever entrusts them with her tiny baby girl, born not so many hours ago: a child who needs them as much as they need her.

How great is our God, and how faithful in the answering of our prayers! Bless all who wait on God and trust in God's plan for their lives.

I am so excited about the news of the newest Abrazo babe!

Andy & Jill,

Although the journey was not always easy now that your beautiful daughter is in

your arms it makes it all worthwhile. Enjoy this special time with her and her

first family if at all possible. It is a time for wonderful memories before the

hustle and bustle of home life have to return.

Congratulations!
