Answered Prayers

Two years ago - when we started the process of adopting again - we started praying pretty regularly about our daughter who was out there somewhere.

Then about a year ago when we got our referral we were able to start praying for her by name. And then... when things started slowing way down - we started praying specifically that God would make up for this missed time with our girl by working directly on her heart.

We asked Him to mold her heart - to make it known to her that she was a Hoffman - so that when she got home she would just seamlessly fit in.

Well...


Acting nutty!


Cheesin' for the camera...


Pretending to "sleep on demand."


I think she fits right in pretty well as a younger goofy Hoffman.

God is faithful and He cares about prayers.
