The kids and I had a great afternoon yesterday riding to the airport with friends from our church, who are also in our adoption group. We welcomed home the latest addition to the Snyder Family, Simon, and celebrated his arrival and the fact that God moved many mountains for him to come home to his forever family. As we departed, I had a great discussion with Chasity, my friend who drove us to the airport. We talked about what God has for us next. Our families both adopted an orphaned child, as He called us to do, so what now? We both concurred that we didn't see any more children in our futures. Not that we would ever put God in a box, if he called us to adopt again. We talked about how our roles now are to support others who adopt, and there are various ways of doing that: prayer, financially, service (helping run errands/babysit, etc.). That's what's next for our family in the adoption ministry, and I want to become more intentional about it. For now though... we celebrate Simon! (Double click on the photos to enlarge.) Psalm 82:3 Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute.
