Announcing...

Mr. & Mrs. Beaver:

Musical put on for us by the preschoolers when we visited the orphanage in October 2010.
Our Oksana is in the back in the pink.

To our dear family and friends,

After much prayer, lengthy review of many relevant scriptures and hours of discussion with each other, we believe the Lord is leading us to another adoption. Lord willing, we hope to adopt a sibling group of four older orphans, 3 brothers and their little sister. We want to share more, but also need to respect the system which has some constraints about how much is shared for the safety of the children. We will seek more counsel about what we can share and when. In the mean time, we would love to have your prayer support for these kids.

God is so good in granting us the joy and privilege of adopting again. Please pray for His abundant grace to be ours. Please also pray that we navigate these waters in a way that brings Him glory and brings four orphans HOME as soon as possible.

I'm so excited for you, Reynold's family!!
I follow the Russian Orphan Lighthouse project page on Facebook and I saw a picture of four siblings a couple weeks ago and fell in love with them and wished that I could adopt them. Then the other day I heard that a family had been found for ALL FOUR of them and I was so happy. But I didn't know it was YOUR family until today; then I screamed for joy :) :)
You will all be in my prayers!

I've already told some of you guys individually, but I'm super, super excited for you all! I was just thinking the other day how much I respected you guys for opening your home to so many orphans already, and for providing a loving family and exposure to a life-changing gospel. And you're at it again. God bless you guys richly, and I pray the process goes as smoothly as possible!

I have followed your blog for some time now and have been continually inspired by your family's heart for adoption. This news, however, completely blew me off my feet! It is SO wonderful!!! May God allow the adoption to happen and may these four siblings come to know Him. Praying for you all!

We are still in awe at the gift of answered prayer! We knew God had a special plan for these four but man..we never expected such a beautiful answer as your family!!! We really should come to God with GREAT EXPECTATIONS! The best part is * selfishly * we get to meet them and hug them too! Thank You Thank you Thank you for following the call and encouraging us all! We cant wait to meet them and squeeze them!
