New Prayer Request From A Fellow Blogger / ADOPTION

I just received a prayer request from a fellow adoptive family. I really feel the need to share it (as well as put in our our prayer request list). Many of us have been there and it's a privilege to watch God work to bring home our sweet children in such miraculous ways.

I can't WAIT to see God's provision in this.

Here is just a little bit of this family's journey.

"We just finalized the adoption of our son and daughter (Isaiah - 9 yr. and Ruth - 5 yr.) as of Friday. But we are about $8000 short of traveling to go get them. We are planning on leaving in less than 3 weeks, but we have to have the $ first. I KNOW God will provide. I'm just asking for prayer and intercession on our behalf, that the LORD will hear our cries for help and we will be able to raise $8000 in 2 1/2 weeks. Thanks! :)"

If you are like me and can't wait to see just how God provides, you can check out their blog. I know I will be!

"Shine Like Stars"

Our Personal Prayer Requests

*For the waves rolling after the death of Thomas' step-dad.

*For the waves at my husband's place of business to smooth and calm.

*For everyone involved in our home study to feel confident (beyond reason) in our family being ready and perfect for Jael. That we are approved and it all goes quickly.

*That all paperwork may be quick and without flaw (in only a way the God can do) and both U.S. immigration approves us quickly and the Chinese government.

*For all "hiccups" to be banished and a hedge of protection be surrounding this journey.

*For our tax return and finances to fly that we may get started on our journey at a greater speed and that all finances come together with smoothness and speed.

*Please pray for our daughter across the world who faces each night alone, not knowing a family awaits her. Please pray that she feels God's presence, God's hedge of protection around her, that her heart is prepared and ready for family, and that Jesus fills her heart and helps her to be ready to attach to her family. Also for her biological family and their peace and knowledge of a God that loves them so very much.

*Please pray that God protects us from satan's attacks. When you follow God, satan always attacks.

*Most importantly, that God be brought glory and His will be done in all of this.

Prayers for Our Brothers and Sisters
If you have a prayer request, I will be trying to place them at the end of EVERY blog. Just comment or email me and I will list them. If you have a private one, just let me know and I will hold it up to God in prayer, but not place it on our blog.

*Please pray for Eden, a little blessing from Ethiopia, who has a life threatening disorder.

*Please pray for Judah, a little one from Ethiopia that is on a medical visa here in the United States. He has hydrocephalus and the doctors are evaluating him for treatment that is not available there. God is working miracles, can we pray for some more?

*Please pray for Donna and her family as they are starting the adoption process at the same exact time we are and have their preliminary approval as well.

*Please pray for the funds to bring Isaiah and Ruth home in around three short weeks. May funds pour in....

*Rolando and Julia (Guatemala-It has been over five years.), AND Junior and Diamoh (Liberia) to be able to finally come home to their families and that these countries open to legitimate adoptions.

*Renae-For the continued transition of their sweet family. Their daughter joined their family this year and they are starting the process of another amazing journey to Ethiopia!

*Daniel (Liberia) and Jeremiah (Taiwan)- for their continued health issues. God's blessings and Hand on them and their families.

*My friend (unnamed, God knows)... foster son, his family, and all who will make or influence decisions on his behalf that God's will be done in every aspect of his life. Also, currently, for his serious health issues.

*For Eliz and their family as they bring home five beautiful blessings with Down Syndrome.

*Please pray for discernment and clarity for Gena and her family as they seek God's will about a future adoption. Also, please pray for their teen son to come to know Christ.


  1. Oh Thank You, Thank you for advocating for us!!
    P.S. You have the most beautiful children!!! ALL of them.
    Any tips on hair products? :)

  2. Oh Kat,

    Rejoicing with you in your adoption of Jael! I can't wait to see how God provides. (Are you going to do any fundraisers or have a Chip-In Button?)

    I will visit the blog of the family adopting the boy and girl. It is always amazing to see how God does what seems impossible.

    I'll keep you and your requests in my prayers.

    Much Love,

  3. You know, I did a TON of digging on hair and need to set down and write a blog on it. So many awesome people directed our "hair" adventure! Okay, it's now on my list of blogs!

    Kathie, you know, I think I'm going to link to your last post...just LOVED the idea of a file on parents. It really makes you think.

    I may do a "Chip In" button or fundraising, but we're in the process of really thinking about it right now. Thank you so much for your prayers. We continue to pray for yours as well!

    I love seeing how God works in both your families!!!


In the joy of following our Heavenly Father, we sometimes choose to proceed with a whisper, a verse, or a downright matter how we follow Him, the momentum that follows is like nothing we've ever experienced before.

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