Addie's getting a sister!

Yes, it's true, there is a #2 in the works.  However, said #2 is a beautiful little girl with Down syndrome who is in an international country.  This is something that has been on Erin's heart for a very long time.  After some friends of ours traveled on a missions trip and met her in an orphanage and then Zac saw her picture and we both spent lots of time in prayer considering all things, it was unanimous.  Baby girl was meant to be a Harlan. 

Once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows what we know, and holds us responsible to act." Prov. 24:1

We know many of you will be confused, asking why, or think we're nuts.  And that is OK.  Erin has felt lead to these orphans for over a year now. Zac more recently started discussing and praying about the idea and we are both very excited!  We just ask that you would consider praying for our family during this time and especially our little girl sitting in an orphanage not knowing her momma and daddy....yet.

More info to come, but wanted the first post to be to the point =).  We are praying she will be able to come home to celebrate with us by Christmas.  We would love to have her home by her 4th birthday in September, and so we're praying for the God of miracles to do just that...give us a beautiful miracle.

To the general public, for privacy reasons until the adoption is final, she is a little girl with Down syndrome in a foreign country that desperately needs to be saved and brought to our little home to grow old with her sister.

Thank you so much for your support thus far in Adelynn's Journey and we look forward to seeing our story continue with the addition of another chromosomally enhanced little girl.

 Yes, we are calling her Sister...as that is what Addie says when she sees her picture...and until we can use her name on here...we lovingly call her Sister!
