About two months ago I mentioned our friends Jonathan and Bethany Meacham who have been in the process of adopting from the the Democratic Republic of Congo for more than six months. Since then, the Meacham's have encountered hurdle after hurdle in their adoption process. Today they were met with another trial as their recent referral, a 5 month old baby boy, has been hospitalized with a serious case of Malaria.
Their journey, even thus far has been tremendous. They have faithfully persisted in their pursuit of adoption, despite heartache, knowing that the God they serve is sovereign. Our hearts have been heavy in the past weeks as we have grieved with the Meacham's, but our eyes are lifted to our God who knows all things, who created all things and is in control of all things. If you are a Christian, will you petition for this baby boy's health and for the Meacham's that they would find strength in this time?
