Well, we had a great Christmas and are quickly approaching the New Year. The most memorable moment for us was when we went through the "What God wants for Christmas" nativity set and watched the "light" come on for our children. It was so priceless when they realized that all God wants is us. How precious. However, our most unexpected moment was after Michael's family Christmas when he and the guys decided to play a game of family football. Michael now has a broken leg and to be honest I am not sure who even won. So, we are excitedly entering the new year with great expectations. It will be so neat to see what God has for us this year as we continue to trust in Him to do His work. Please continue to pray for health and safety for each member of our family along with a speedy recovery for Michael, and that God will continue to order our steps as we finish raising our support. We appreciate you all being a part of our journey and hope that your Christmas was as memorable as ours.....just a little more safe!

Merry Christmas from the Corbin's! Every year is so delightful for us as we take the time to realize how much God has blessed us and provided for our family. Just over 6 years ago we were still praying that God would intervene and bless our family with children. In our earthly eyes we did not know if we would ever hang stockings or have fun Christmas mornings with children of our own. We count our blessings: Gabriel, now 5, and Naomi 3, both Miracles of God! What a great time of year to stop and think of all of the ways God has protected, provided, and ministered to your family. So, we say Merry Christmas (with the emphasis on Christ!) May HE be the center of every moment this holiday season. Hope you enjoy a few pictures of our little miracles (when they were little!)

We cannot begin to describe how thankful we are to our God and Savior for this time in our lives. Never before have we been afforded so much. The opportunity to meet so many new and wonderful people, step out of our comfort zone, and the ability to focus on a greater purpose in life. It is so great to have a designated holiday to remind us to be thankful. But the truth is we were already thankful. Thankful for new opportunities, a sold house, 2 miracle babies, a God centered marriage, and being called by God to make a difference in the lives of others. God is good! So, if you have in any way been a part of our lives or if you are a part of our current journey, we are thankful for you too!
