Daniel!!!!

Quicky update for all those who have been praying! If you look at the end of my last blog (and many others), a few precious children from around the world have been placed on our hearts. In these adoption situations, governments were required to move. These situations were above and beyond the normal challenges that adoptions face. Daniel is one of these precious blessings we have been praying for! He's the little blessing with hydrocephaly that needs to come home from Liberia quickly.

Things are moving! Daniel's adoption decree and passport processes start this week!!! God is so very good!

Please continue to pray for Daniel, that his process speeds through, and the government's reopening of adoptions in Liberia. So many children wait for their families. This sweet family also has two more children there that they are waiting to bring home. From what I understand, except for special needs children, Liberia is closed to adoptions, so these children...these blessings.... will wait.

If you would like to read more about their journey, please click here.

God is amazing! This is the second child on the prayer request list to be coming home! Jubilee is now home from China with her forever family! Their family is celebrating, but is also currently facing some challenges. Please keep them in your prayers as well. You can find their blog here.

Immediate Adoption Process Prayer Requests
*That the funds pour in like water in a surge of blessing and that God blesses us with the funds to accept the referral and travel when the time comes.
*That God’s hand is on the remaining paperwork and that they proceed with not a glitch, quickly and correctly. These are the papers we will need to accept the referral of our sweet little blessings, the papers to pass court, and the papers to bring them home.
*That our twins may be gathered into our family with a quickness blessed by God.

All Adoption Prayer Requests:
Please Pray…..
*For these little ones God has chosen to place in our family…for their physical and emotional health in a difficult place.
*For their biological family…that God has His hand on them and brings them peace in whatever they must face and the choices they will be making. Also, please pray that they come to know Christ and the peace only He can give.
*That God has His hand on this adoption, guiding us, bringing peace, and financially providing.
*Last, though it may seem a bit premature, please specifically pray that once we are referred our little ones, that they come home quickly and pass court the first time (many are starting to have multiple court dates and a LONG wait until travel). The Ethiopian government is being very cautious and caring with their wonderful children though and for that we are so thankful.
* That we have peace and not stress, trusting God in every step.

We also pray that hearts are convicted daily to open their families and lives to orphans around the world.

Also, please join us in prayers for three beautiful Christian families and five sweet children who are facing obstacles above and beyond what a adoption process usually looks like. This used to be four families, but God brought sweet Jubilee home from China just about a week ago. Governments will literally have to move for these older and special needs children to come home. Families are waiting for them and we are SO excited to see God work in these lives and these governments to bring these adoptive blessings home!

Olivia Mame (Ethiopia)-I would like to ask your prayers for a little sweet young girl in Ethiopia named Olivia Mame. There are some very immense road blocks, serious ones, that have to be conquered in order to finish the adoption of this precious young lady.

Daniel (Liberia)-A little one with hydrocephaly awaits his family. Please pray that Daniel does not deteriorate farther and that people in authority to move this case feel the passion to see this through quickly. There are also two more beautiful sweet blessings this family is trying to bring home as well. Daniel process is now moving. Please continue to pray for Daniel, his process to speed along, and for the Liberian government to open up to adoption again.

Ronaldo and Julia (Guatemala)-For years this family has been trying to get their beautiful future children out of Guatemala. Every time it seems close there is another glitch. Please pray with us. Please pray that EVERY problem is resolved and every piece of paper has the perfection only God can give.

In the joy of following our Heavenly Father, we sometimes choose to proceed with a whisper, a verse, or a downright shove...no matter how we follow Him, the momentum that follows is like nothing we've ever experienced before.

Join the momentum...it is a beautiful place to be. It's not always easy, but then the best things never are.
