The big news in the Humphrey household is that there are going to be 2 more of us!! Two brothers, ages 9 and 6 will begin transitioning to our family this week and will be full-time Humphrey kids by early summer. We aren't able to share names or post pictures yet and probably won't until the adoption is complete, but suffice it to say that they are cuties.
We feel so blessed to be used of God to provide a loving, safe home for these boys and look forward to what He has in store for all of us! Ian is very excited to have more brothers but is a bit confused since they aren't living here yet and will be very sad when they have to leave every weekend.
Everyone asks how this happened and the best answer is one word: God! His heart for the fatherless is so very clear in His Word and He has given us an increasing burden for children in the foster system who are older, and therefore considered 'unadoptable'. We have been licensed foster parents for over 2 years, but have never had a placement for one reason or another. The logistics just never worked out. So, we began praying in earnest about the possibility of adopting. We believe God has directed this decision and are looking forward to how Ian might be a blessing to these boys and they a blessing to him. The road will not be easy, but we are committed to making this a 'forever home' for these boys who have been through some rough times.
