I have to tell each one of you how much your support has meant to me in our journey. Maybe because you each agree with me. ha-ha!

An update on our situation; I originally posted in January 2010. Here we are in September and MY KIDDOS ARE HOME!!! Praising God for that! We were matched with them in Nov./Dec. 2009. The kids have been home since July 2010 and are really settling in well. My sister, and family in general, have not come around. My twin sister, who I originally posted about, has only come to see the kids once, is now to the point that she doesn't answer/return my phone calls, e-mails, and won't even post my comments on her blog. Pretty petty, but Christian according to their beliefs. Please pray for her and her family. They are involved in a very cultish church that has a tight grip on them. It breaks my heart, but what else do you do but trust in God?

I thank you for your continued support. This post seems to strike people as it keeps coming back to the top.

I pray God's blessings of peace and contentment in YOUR lives.

If you want to see my beautiful kiddos (all 6 of them) and our crazy life, send me a private message with your e-mail address and I'll send you an invite to my blog.

I'm so glad to hear that your kids are all home. I'll keep your sister in my prayers, as it is not our job as humans to judge. That is up to God. Whether or not your sister agrees with your choice to adopt these children and accept the subsidy, God is all about relationships. I'm sure He is grieving the loss of her relationship with you.

I will pray that she comes to realize that you don't have to agree with someone to love them and be part of their life.

(((Hugs)))

I would tell her that it is not her duty to judge you. I would tell her what you told us, that you love her very much and don't want to hurt her feelings. Tell her you will pray about it, and if God tells you in more ways than one that you should not accept the money that you will obey God and him only.
