It Was A Wonderful Day.........we will never forget!

Dear sweet ladies,

VITALIY PHILIP (named after his Poppa) STUBBS

New Daddy and son holding hands the same way! Sweeet!

was adopted officially today, by 

Joshua and Tonya Stubbs

sister and Brother
Ellie and Ian Stubs

Proud grandparents...........

Philip and Linda Stubbs!!!!!!!!!!! 

Aunt Tressa and Aunt Taylor

2 Uncles and 2 Aunts
7 cousins. 

Please pray with us as we teach him about Jesus!!!!!!!!!! It will be precious to watch the Holy Spirit woo his heart! 

Thank you so much sweet ladies who have walked this with us for the last 9 months. Can you believe 9 months, just like a normal pregancy. We thought that was kind of special. Thank you also for donating to his adoption. We are forever thankful and have asked that the Lord will bless you!

There was lot that happened today and the last 3 weeks. It was so wonderful to see the Lord part the Red Sea. No kidding! I will wait to see what Tonya wants to write about her experience and then I will tell you how you can read it. 

Tressy has met a little girl............she loves her. Pray as to what the Lord would like to do in this situation. Nothing is impossible with God............I can't wait to see what the Lord has for the next chapter of this book! There are so many children that are so precious there that need adopted. If you are interested in adopting please contact us. 

Hugs from this farm.......... soon to have a Grammie and Poppa Welcome Home Camp............. after V gets used to his new family with his Daddy, Momma and brother and sister!!!!!!!!!!

Now that makes this Grammie cry with JOY!
I can rest in His goodness!
