"take captive every thought to make it obedient to CHRIST."
2 Corinthians 10:5

Hello sweet ladies,
Resting in the Lord today....a little on the weary has been one week. Vitaliy is on route to Ukraine.......Tonya is the prayers are needed as to what God has for them to do. So thankful He will lead them with a straight path. Some have said "why do you adopt from afar.......while there are children to adopt here..........not sure of the answer........but I know that God places choices in our path each day..........Vitaliy is part of the plan and choice of what He wants our son's family to do. If you could meet Vitaliy.........(a little boy that needs Jesus no matter where he lives) would pick him also. He has a joy....... that is so contagious! He needs rescuing..........from a country that does not have "truth". He knows of Jesus by name........he just doesn't know Him personally, but we are praying that he will, even if we are not with him. We gave him the Lord will do the watering.........can't wait to see what the Lord will do with his little life! It is a sad time because he will be so missed, but I wouldn't want to miss out on the journey that God has had for all of us. I can't wait for it to unfold......because my favorite verse means more to me now than ever before.

"I will give you the treasures of darkness,
riches stored in secret places, so that
you may know that I am the Lord,
the God of Israel, who summons you by name."
Isaiah 45:3

My love for the Lord has grown in this last month dependency on His direction has also.............He has given our whole family joy in the midst of the sorrow.......that is our God! "AWESOME" He is so worth following. We are all orphans....He wants to adopt us.............I have been! Now maybe we can adopt Vitaliy! Pray as our son and his family......... walk hand in hand with will be an adventure......but when it is with is a wonderful trip!!!!

Jesus will never leave nor forsake our matter whether he is in
America or the Ukraine! What a comfort for a family.......... to hold onto!
Thank you for praying for us!

This Grammie has a new grandson.......Vitaliy is his name........he will forever be in my if he could only have the last name Stubbs.....I would be very happy!

Hugs from our your HOME!

The joy of the Lord is my strength. Nehemiah 8:10



  1. Keeping prayers and thoughts with your family.Praying Vitaliy will find peace and hope for his future and a forever family.Warm Blessings!~Amy

  2. Oh Linda you and your family (along with Vitaliy) continue to be in my prayers. And you are sooo right..God has a plan and he will take care of all of you including Vitaliy. I know you r heart just has to be aching for this little boy, but also know he is so much richer for the time he has spent with all of you. You have made beautiful memories for him. I pray things will work out and your son will be able to adopt him. I can just see the joy in his eyes from the pictures you have posted.

    Blessings and have a restful day...

    xoxo Gert

  3. Continuing to pray daily for Gods direction for your family and Vitaliy. I so understand what this feels like. Your faith is strong and you are lead by the Lord, so I feel so good about this, but the Lord is going to direct it all. I'm rooting for you.

  4. Hello Amy.......thank and hope......I love thinking about it in that way.......miss him so much!!!! Will wait patiently.......for what the Lord has for him.......hope it is back with us.

    Hi Gert......we are missing Vitaliy........but hope that God will make the path very straight as our family walks this all out. He is so faithful and he knows the desire of our hearts! That is a good thing!

    Hi Katie.......thank you.........I feel weak at times........especially these last few days........just a little on the numb side. Seeking the Lord to give me the joy! He is so good. Just a little sad.

    Thank you that you all are praying for V. That is such a blessing!
    Hugs, Linda
