"Wating for you"...Thinking of our adopted son or daughter to be...every day.

We are still waiting for the child the Lord has for us...the "one" that He has chosen for us to be "mom and dad" to and bring into our family forever. (the question we have always asked when a situation came up, "Is this our child"?) So far, the answer was always no. This divine coming together, hasn't happened yet. So we are waiting. It isn't easy. No one ever said it would be. Some days the longing is too much. Has the child been born? is he/ or she safe? a million questions all the time. We continue to hope that the next time we post an update it will be that our prayers have been answered...we will keep praying for the child that is meant to be with us. We continue to find peace that God knows where our child is and when we will be brought together. So in the waiting time, we pray for our son or daughter. Maybe we will have an exciting update to share soon. In the meantime, we are contacting places that may have interest free loans, grants etc. Often these are not available for private domestic adoptions. We do believe that where God leads, He will we continue to trust in His provision and prepare our hearts for the day that is coming soon...(Thinking of the song "we will worship while we're waiting)....Most importantly on my heart today is the Psalm "the Lord will perfect that which concerns me". Adoption concerns us. Our children that we do not even know yet, concerns us. How & when it will all come together, concerns us. "We surrender these concerns to you Lord. Your are the one who is writing the story after all. Please grant us grace and peace in the waiting, and look after this child/these children that you love even more than we could imagine".~Amen

Please pray for us on this journey

We just want to thank all of you who have taken the time to visit our blog. We appreciate all of you who have prayed for us and encouraged us on our journey this far. We have no idea where all of this will lead but we know that God is good and we are anticipating good news to come. For now, we carry this child in our hearts and pray for him/or her daily. Feel free to give us share your thoughts & prayers, or ask us questions. We really want this to be a shared journey with our family, friends, and even those of you that we do not know yet. Thanks again! Hopefully we will have more to post soon... "Whatever is good and perfect comes down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens". ~James 1:17

Why we are sharing this with you now.

The reason we are sharing this blog with everyone now is simple; prayer and preparedness. When we received a phone call for a five day old baby in September we realized we were ready but not prepared. What I mean by that is this: although we did say "yes" to adopting that little boy and sadly that situation did not go through, we realized we did not have the funds or preparations in our home in place. When the call comes in for a possible adoptive child it is only a matter of days before we would have that baby in our home, in that time we would need clothes, cribs, bedding, etc but most importantly we would need the ability to pay the attorney for his or her services. We believe that call could come again at anytime and we want to be confident that we can take care of all expenses and have all things necessary for caring for our new little bundle of joy.
 Thank you for taking the time to visit our blog and especially for all of your prayers. If you want to help by investing in the life of our child through giving towards his/or her adoption, please visit the donate tab or PayPal button on this site, deposit to Regions bank (into account of Paul & Misty LaGod) or email us at Thank you!!
We love and bless you all,
Paul and Misty LaGod
