Blooper Into Something Cool~Wayfarer: Ethiopian Adoption Resource Blog

Okay, so I pulled one yesterday. Don't you hate when you do that? I have some sort of stomach bug and was just wanting to crawl under the covers and stay there (the flavor of rotten eggs comes to mind). I know, too much information.

Anyway, I wanted to post about the Attachment DVD's and went to Google Pictures to find a pic to post. If you've used it before, you can type in your search criteria (mine was, "Attachment + Blogspot"). This brought up a ton of pictures. You can save it without ever going to the site (it's faded in the background). It will show you the link, but as sick as I was I didn't even look. I thought, "Okay, that is pretty, I can just use that as a pic". Then proceeded to stop everything because I got so nauseous.

I used that picture not knowing it was one created by a fellow blogger/follower (seriously impressive, btw, when this blog is about as creative as I have the ability to get).

As you suspect, I didn't think much about anything (drug induced nausea med fog). Thankfully she let me know (kindly..smile) and didn't hit me over the head (though blacking out may not have been a bad thing at that point).

This is where my blooper (guilt, guilt, guilt) turned into a good thing. She has a wonderful Ethiopian Resource Blog. She recommends many of the books I LOVE! She is sharing her knowledge to aid others going through the journey to bring home their children from Ethiopia. SUCH a cool thing....

I had gone back to my post and made sure I linked to her blog, but after spending some more time on it, I wanted to share it in it's own post. For those thinking about adoption, it's way worth the time. Check out the link below!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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 GOD to show him where he can bring GOD the most glory.

*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. Even with the above blessing, we still need the tax return to come through.

*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.

March's Extra Adoption Prayer Requests:
* Please pray for our home visit and interview with me (around the 25th most likely)
*Please pray for our medicals on the kids(general), Thomas, and I. The kids and Thomas will be quick, but my physical is just before the home study.
*Please pray for our Psychological evaluation: Our agency would like us to do this as an added insurance since the twins came home only 8 months ago AND we have seven children. Not all agencies do this, but ours is extremely diligent. Of course, we don't LOVE it, but we LOVE that our agency is dotting every "i" and crossing every "t".
*Please pray for our state clearances to come in by home study time. We are waiting on child abuse clearances from two states we lived in during my husband's time in the military.
*Please pray as we apply to Immigration. We need the fingerprint appointment to come quickly, as well as approval.

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 my friends Michelle and Amber who both have parents struggling with cancer.

*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.

*Please pray for our friend whose daughter Kennedy is having seizures. Please pray that they cease and whatever is causing them never returns.

*Please pray for healing of little Selah (with hydrocephalus) and Lorraine's family as they navigate through this new journey.

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.
