Two Months From Referral! And the Winner is......


Today has been two months since we were referred our sweet little ones! TWO MONTHS!!! Wow!

Yes, we are still waiting on a court date. All in God's timing :), though we cherish every prayer for our little ones and their quick homecoming!




This month we are giving away an awesome t-shirt found on "It's Almost Naptime!!"

This t-shirt is helping bring home another little one to their forever family! I hope you peak over there even if your name isn't drawn!

Also, today is ONE DAY WITHOUT SHOES. It's a day to remember all the children of the world who don't even have a simple pair of shoes. Many live their lives without a single pair. The damage parasites and infections can have (from not having shoes) is painful to see and can be disastrous.

Tom's Shoes gives away one pair of shoes to those in need for every pair bought. This is not just today, but every day. To read more or go to their website, just click on the following link.
"One Day Without Shoes".

At long last, to celebrate the blessing of two new members to our family, Sarah drew the winner of this awesome t-shirt! The winner is (drum roll please)....Whitney at "Our Hearts in Ethiopia". I will be shooting you an email shortly!!!

Check back around the end of the month for our next giveaway! Thank you for coming to celebrate with us!!!

PRAYER REQUESTS and PRAISES!

PRAISES!!!
The Wright family has a new member after a long and hard road to adoption!
Jubilee is home!!!
God has been financially supplying our needs to bring home Gabriel and Rachel.
Olivia Mame (Ethiopia) has a court date (April 14th)!
Rolondo and Julia's (Guatemala) family just got a date for their empathy study! Things are moving! Woo Hoo!

PRAYER REQUESTS
1. We are praying for a quick court date.
2. We are praying for paperwork to be perfect and present.
3. We are praying for those relinquishing...for their spirit, hope, God's peace. We are also praying they are able to be present with the correct identification.
4. We are praying for the judge and that he sees the need to pass us the first time we come to court and the papers are sped to the embassy where we receive a very quick embassy date.
5. We are praying that we are able to travel quickly... not for convenience, but to know our children are safe during elections in Ethiopia and to have confidence they are where they are supposed to be...forever (as long as God loans our children to us on this earth). We know God's timing is WAY better than ours though.
6. Most importantly we are praying that our twins are healthy, warm, comforted, loved, held, that angels are surrounding them, that God's hand is upon them...and the list goes on and on. It looks as if they lost weight as of the new pictures we've received.
7. Lastly, please pray for peace for our hearts as we wait (it's not easy after seeing their faces :)).

PRAYERS FOR OTHERS
Please continue to pray for a few others that, in their situations, governments (and mountains) need to move to bring their children home.
Please pray for Daniel, Junior and Diamoh (Liberia).
Please pray for Olivia Mame (Ethiopia)
Please pray for Rolando and Julia (Guatemala)

Please pray for my sweet friend (S's family) whose domestic adoption failed recently. Please pray for comfort for the family and wisdom and peace in their next steps. There is still a chance that the birth mother (who is struggling with her decision) may still place the infant with them. Please pray for God's will above all else.

Also, please pray for the C family whose international adoption failed recently. Please pray for peace and wisdom as they decide how to proceed.

Please also pray for the "A" family who suffered a miscarriage this week. Please pray for peace as they struggle with the pain that comes from losing a child.

Please pray for "The Covering" in Sierra Leone. Please pray they get the funds, supplies, and sponsorships needed to support these wonderful blessings.

Please pray for "Motherly Care" in Kenya as they struggle. Please pray sponsorship is found for this orphanage.

Please also pray for the Canadian and American Families that are waiting in Uganda (many for months and months). They are waiting for their countries decisions and investigations so that visas may be issues to bring their new children home.

Please also pray for healing for three little girls with Leukemia, Abby, Tatum, and Elke. Abby has has been in this battle and is fighting as we speak. Her courage has been amazing. You can find out about Abby by clicking on the button on the right side of our blog

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.
