Hello Sweet Ladies.............

Last December a little boy came into our lives............and he changed it forever.

He lived with a family for the first time in 10 years...........
for 6 weeks and we all fell in love with him.

We had to say goodbye in January and we prayed that the Lord would keep him safe...............as we waited..........

BUT YESTERDAY...............

VITALIY PHILIP STUBBS left the orphanage
to be a new family member of 
Joshua, Tonya, Ellie and Ian Stubbs and a whole extended family!

Last night his Momma tucked him in bed.............and read him the
Word of God.............in English! He may not understand fully,
but God says His Word does not return Void!!!!!

May V fully understand  someday the God who gave His Son to pay 
for Vitaliy to truly be free!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you precious ladies for your love gifts and your prayers. Our family will never ever be the same and if ever you choose to adopt..........count on us to be there for YOU! It is a life changing experience! I would encourage you to step out! There are so many
precious children who need a Momma and a Daddy. He will
do the impossible.........we experienced it!!!!!!!

Eternally grateful,

Grammie for the 10th time

I am praising my Lord with hands lifted HIGH!!!!!!
