OCEAN Evening of Thanksgiving TONIGHT!

Don't miss it! Scroll down a few posts for the full details.

We're looking forward to a lovely evening of tasty fall food and great fellowship together at the Yates' home.

As always, feel free to bring your friends who are in the process of adoption or whose children are home with their Forever Families already.

See you there!

"Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before Him with thanksgiving and extol Him with music and song." Psalm 95:1-2

"I will give thanks to the Lord because of His righteousness and will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High." Psalm 7:17

So sad to miss this all. In the event that you have that reflective "share what you are thankful for" moment, here's my two cents:

- You all!
- The two little ones waiting for us in ET.
- That the Lord IS sovereign over the court process, and that He already knows our court date.
- That the Lord has brought the right people to my department to help the phase out from working girl to FT mom.

Much love,
Alexis

Oh, I hope it's a wonderful time!!! Your OCEAN group sounds so cool. Who started that anyway? Was it your family?

I love that verse from Psalm 95. :)

Rebecca, Yes, Michael and I started OCEAN last summer when we were in the process of adopting Ray Ray. I can't tell you what a blessing all the sweet relationships we've gained has been! It just keeps getting better, too, as more families have gotten involved and more beautiful babies and kids have come home. We are so grateful for this incredible community of believers!

Praise the Lord!
