Maybe we are doing something right.......

I know we have only been parents for 3 months now, but we often get hard on ourselves and wonder if we are doing anything right. Well tonight was a special night as Juliana said she wanted to ask Jesus into her heart! A few days ago I was having lunch with the kiddos and was talking to them more about Jesus and asked them why he died and where He lives. They didn't seem to know so we talked about it for a little bit. Later on Juliana said that she wanted to ask Jesus to come live in her heart. I told her that we can talk with Jim tonight and she said ok. When we were going to bed she didn't want to say anything about it so we just said ok. We were really wanting to make sure she understood and wanted to do it for her and not because we told her to. So we have been praying for her for a couple days and tonight she told Jim that she wanted to ask Jesus into her heart to live. We prayed with her and used her spanish and english bible and read some verses to make sure she understood as much as posible. It was a precious moment!! August 2 2008. What a great day!

incredible! now I can go to sleep with a smile on my face. :)
What an awesome display of God's touch through your lives that she has opened her heart to Him so soon after adoption even when she may have so many reasons to push Him away.

So will she call it her second birth or her second adoption? ;)

Waahoo! Juliana! Congratulations! Being a Christian is one of the hardest, but most exciting things to do or be! I think you've got some great parents who will stand by you as you grow up in the Word and help you thru it! God has known you before you were formed, and He has great plans for YOU!

Congratulations on making one of the best decisions of your life! Welcome to the family!
