Where are the Corbin's?

Where are the Corbin's?  Well, our absence from this blog does not mean we have left!  :)

We are hard at work here in Little Rock at our ministry assignment at FamilyLife.  Our family dynamics have changed a bit over the last 18 months which has made it hard for us to blog with transparancy (when a child is in foster care, his or her identity cannot be shared on the internet for privacy reasons).  We now have five children instead of just the two that we brought with us to Arkansas two years ago.  God blessed us with preemie twin baby girls in September of 2010.  We are now in the final stages of adopting these little girls.  Then in September of 2011 God again blessed us with a 13 year old boy!  His legal status is still in progress.  So in addition to all of our regular ministry work and projects, our family has been very busy!  We would love to keep you posted on our ministry on a monthly basis.  So, if you are interested in more updates and keeping up with our life and ministry, please take a minute and send us your contact information.  Your address can be emailed to

Thanks for being a part of our ministry!

Michael, Alecia, Gabriel, Naomi, and our 3 blessings

Thinking of YOU!!

We think of you daily!  How are you?  Please drop us a note and let us know how you and your family are doing. 

We are back to the blog again.  :)  After several months of regrouping, we are back!  We have had a crazy busy family season, and are fully entrenched in the work that God has called us to do.  Can't wait to start updating you more in coming posts!

Much love,

The Corbin's

Praying for Direction

Just a quick note.  I have been torn over the last months regarding this blog.  We initially began our blog when we were traveling and raising support full time.  Now that we are in Little Rock and are fully engaged in ministry work, I am struggling with whether or not I should continue here in bloggy world.  Most of our daily updates occur on facebook, the big news comes in our monthly prayer letters, and everything ends up attached to our website.  How much more do I put out there?  How much time should I invest in sharing the daily details of our lives? 

If you have any thoughts or words of wisdom, please feel free to share.  Thanks for your patience as we pray and decide what is a wise use of our time and energies.

Much love,

Praying with Perserverance

As we continue on the path that God has called us, we find ourselves in so many situations.  Some new, some sad, some scary, and all part of the learning process.

It has taken a lot of adjustment, being far away from all of our friends and family.  It is so amazing, though, to see how God's hand is on us, and just how much the enemy is willing to fight us.

These last weeks our hearts have been heavy over the details - the details that go along with living by faith.  All of the what's, where's, and when's.  So we began to pray harder, to claim God's promises, and to let statements of faith be always on our lips.  We asked our prayer team and home church to agree with us over the "details."  Within days, Alecia experienced her first ever kidney stone, one large enough that she required an ambulance ride, an overnight stay in the hospital, and a surgical procedure.  While at the hospital our children were in the loving hands of another FamilyLife couple.  During this time Gabriel managed to fall at the park and split his chin open.  Within three days, as a family we had spent time in two different hospitals and we're so tired. 

However, the one constant thought that we have is the race that we have been called to.  Hebrews 12:1 talks about being surrounded by a cloud of witnesses and running with patience the race set before us.

WOW.....not easy and definitely not always fun.  At the conclusion of our "adventure" this last weekend, we had only one word for our prayer team and home church.  PRESS ON!  Do not let up.  PRAY!  As ever before, time is short.

We love each of you and appreciate you being a part of our "cloud of witnesses!"  Press on!

April Picture Update

April has been super busy for us!  We have been blessed with visits from both sets of Alecia's grandparents, traveled quite a bit, had our first Arkansas Easter, finished first grade with Gabriel, and adopted a new member into our family.  Hope you enjoy the pictures!
