For the birth of our child
« on: June 15, 2010, 06:52:36 PM »
We are at the hospital awaiting the birth of our son whom we are adopting.  Please pray for an easy delivery for birth mom and a healthy baby!!!  We are grateful for everyone's prayers!

Lord, have mercy!

Congratulations on your decision to adopt this little boy, GreekChef.  A local priest and his wife also made the decision to adopt an infant child, so I have an inkling of what you're doing and think very highly of your action.

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Indeed - Glory to God for all good things.  May He continue to bless you and Father, and may the three of you have a long, healthy, happy, and God-blessed life!
