sometimes He says ‘NO’; sometimes He say’s ‘SLOW’

Monday, June 13, 2011

thank you all once again for your prayers, they are appreciated so much. I’m sorry to have left you hanging so long, it was not intentional. The truth is I've had a hard time finding the words to say. It’s hard because this is Sadler’s story and I can’t nor want to give out all the details. (thanks for your support and understanding)

We are still very hopeful that God will bless us with Sadler as our forever son in HIS timing, but that time just hasn’t come yet.

We had a guest pastor in our church a few weeks ago and he talked about how God sometimes answers our prayers with a “no” and sometimes he say’s “slow'”. This is one of those times he’s saying ‘slow’. We continue to wait and go through the hills and valleys of this roller coaster ride we call ‘adoption’! Trying to be patient and wait for His timing.

We covet your continued prayers for our family and Sadler’s birth family.

All glory to Him


The things that I seek are from You
Like the strong healing touch of your hand
But when You say no help me trust even though
There’s a reason I can’t understand

When that miracle comes cause Your answer is yes
I will praise you for all of my days
But when Your wisdom declares that a no is best
I will praise You just the same

You have a much better purpose
And You have a far greater plan
And You have a bigger perspective
Cause You hold this world in your hands

Katie -
I am always so amazed at your positive attitude through everything. You are an inspiration. I pray Sadler is legally yours very very soon. You are an amazing mom and he would be so blessed to have you raise him.

I'm praying for you to be surrounded and lifted up with God's arms of love and grace. He will give you what you need for today. And, start all over again tomorrow. I know you know that--and you are trusting Him. Thanks for being such an encouragement to others. God's timing is BEST! Keep trusting.

K & J Sayers
