About five years ago my wife asked me to pray about something. Like a good husband I asked what the request was. It was, “Would you pray about us adopting an international child?” On the inside I was like “what in the world?” but on the outside I agreed to pray. My prayer was not the prayer she wanted, but I did pray. I prayed,” Lord, please take this desire away from Nikki. “ Over time the Lord softened my heart, and we considered adopting. I just knew we would get turned down, so it was safe to go ahead and let Nikki fill out all the paper work. Well long story short, not only did the Lord soften my heart, but also gave me the same desire to adopt. The Lord has moved mountains! We have already been approved, passed our home study and have been matched with a little girl named Lydia. Lydia is a beautiful little girl from China who has Down Syndrome. She was left outside a police station as a newborn and has lived in an orphanage all of her life. All the Shamblins are excited to bring little Lydia Grace home soon.
