He said he had been at our house and gone in to use the computer and saw this little face (Kareen's picture) pulled up on the screen and he said to himself "I know her...." He didn't know ANYTHING about it and didn't even know we were considering adopting, let alone that we were considering this child. Well he kept this to himself and then a week later my mom emailed him her picture and said "Kris and Kecia are seriously considering adopting this little girl from Eastern Europe and they need our prayers in making this decision" Well when my dad saw this same picture, he said he knew we were going to become her family. Of course he didn't share any of this information until after we had made our decision!
As we were sitting there that night talking to my family about Kareen and the process of adoption and such, I became very emotional worrying about the possibility of her being transferred to an institution. Although we would still probably be allowed to adopt her if she was transferred, I still couldn't bear the thought of her spending one minute there. My wise father calmly said to me "Honey, the Lord already had your path to her laid out well before a month ago. He will protect her and watch over her until you get to her"
I am grateful for his faith, because it is getting me through those moments of worry and anxiety about it. I will continue to have faith as we embark on this journey!
