Meet Benjamin...

"You are the helper of the fatherless.
LORD, You have heard the desire of the humble;
You will prepare their heart; You will cause Your ear to hear,
To do justice to the fatherless and the oppressed,
That the man of the earth may oppress no more." 
Psalm 10: 14b, 17-18

This is Benjamin.
I am overwhelmed with gratefulness that he will be joining our extended family in the next few months.
I have been blessed to see the Lord give Nanette and Scott a desire to add to their family through adoption.
I know that God chose this adorable little boy to be the perfect fit to their family.  He turned three in April, and right now he is living in an orphanage in Taiwan.  The adoption process has taken longer than we all hoped and expected, but He is in control of every detail and we are just trusting Him! 
I wanted to share some great news:  they received a court date!!!
I would love it if you would pray on August 1 (the time is 10:20 PM in Birmingham) and after that the final ruling would come quickly and they would be able to go to Taiwan and get their son!
I will keep you posted!!

"A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows,
is God in his holy dwelling. 
God sets the lonely in families, 
he leads forth the prisoners with singing."
Psalm 68:5-6a
