This is my first time blogging so hang on with me as I learn the In's and Out's of this!!!
I wanted to start a blog to tell the story of GOD'S Goodness and how once again He has blown me away with His goodness!
If someone had told me several weeks ago we had a son waiting for us to adopt him...in CHINA, I would have said..."really???" God is the only one who can lead you straight to the eyes of your child!
I was looking at a video on my friend, Angie Ryland's blog. It was a video of her new son Cameron. She said the first boy is ours, the second boy has also been adopted by a family in SC and the third boy is still waiting on his "FOREVER FAMILY". He was listed as "William"...the name we said we wanted to name our son if we ever had another one...also my Daddy's name!
Here is the most beautiful part...the instant I saw that precious child, I KNEW HE WAS OURS! I started sobbing and randomly my 5 yr old son came out of his room after being a sleep for an hour. He walked over to me and said, "Mommy, why are you crying?" I picked him up and put him in my lap and said, "Mommy is crying because this little boy in China doesn't have a family like we do" with out flinching Tripp said "why don't we let him come live with us?"...MORE TEARS!!!!!! :) of JOY!
After much prayer, talking with The Ryland family and more prayer we called Lifeline Adoption agency and asked to have "William's" file pulled. We learned so much more about this little boy...abandon at the age of 4 in front of a local resturant,a slight leg deformity and only 2 yrs before he will be put on the streets in China to fend for himself...there was NO QUESTIONS left to ask...
We started filling out the applications to adopt William Trevor Scarbrough!!!!
November 7, 2011~we recieved our PRE APPROVAL from China...He is OURS!! PRAISE GOD!!!!!! Now to start our home study, raise a lot of money and go get him!!!!
We are officially "The Scarbrough Family of 5" and I can't wait to have my sweet boy under the same roof with us! so the journey begins!!!! GO GOD! We are just alongfor the ride!!!!!! Whoooo hooo!
