I was adopted by my grandparents, I was told that my mother was very sick when she had me, so after her delivery, she let her mother took care of me. Years pass, my grandmother were the one who has been taking care of me, living in their house and with my aunts and uncles. I wasn't given back to my mother or to my parents. Eventhough I knew where they lived and knew my other brothers and sisters, somehow going there or staying in their house feels uncomfortable for me, maybe I was accustomed living in my grandparents house. Later on, I remembered I was already 13 years old when I knew I was adopted and my approval papers came, to go to the US., to joined with my grandparents, aunts and uncles. I did not experience the loved of a real mother or even a real father. So when my grandmother died, I was devastated and felt all alone and another year passed by, it was my grandfather. I know I have question God, this was the time, when I have already recieved Jesus as my Lord and Savior, I said, "why did you let me be adopted"? With that question in my head, He said, "I was CHOSEN, I was handpicked by our Mighty God because out of those 6 children of my real mother, I was the only ONE, given a chance to come here in the United States of America, the land of opportunity, I was the blessed one, I was the CHOSEN ONE. I am from the Philippines, as all of you know that Philippines is one of the poorest country in Asia. People in my country have dreamed of coming here. From then on, the Spirit of Thankfulness were inside of me. God also made it known to me that I wasn't alone, here in this world, that His LOVE is better than my grandparents or even my real parents. Through receiving Jesus as my Lord and Savior, I found out that God IS our real Father who really cares for us. I am so thankful that I have a Father whom I can call my "Abba Father". I have two verses that I cling to when I feel all alone or feeling of loneliness overwhelmed me, 1 is in Jeremiah 31: 3, "I have loved you with an everlasting love and 2 is on Hebrews 13:5 "I will never leave you nor forsake you".... .

It was Year 2005 of March when we got back in the United States, after having stayed in Atsugi Japan for seven years and being accustomed to the way of living there. Here again back in the US soil, thinking what would be our new life being back in the US. I know I was excited when I heard the news to my husband who is 18 years in the Navy at that time the place of his next duty station....excited because it will be in Connecticut, few hours drive from Pennsylvania where I first landed in the US., that was back in Oct 26, 1980., this is where my families and relatives mostly are. I came in the US when I was 13 years old, newly graduate as a 6grader in the Philippines and continued my 7th grade, high school and college in Pa., 

 

First, the good news was, I was newly saved, that month of February 2005 and I knew and feel that there was a purpose why we are coming to Ct.,
