Bringing Jael Home!!!


Many of you have read about our little girl in China.

I'm linking up with the blog
"A Place Called Simplicity" today, as she is doing what she always does...blessing those around her. God has used her so many time to bless His children. She has blessed our family personally by being there as we bring our surprise blessing home.

On Linny's blog today, brothers and sisters in Christ are linking up to share our needs as we bring our little ones into our arms. It's amazing to watch God work this way.

For those who are coming over here from Linny's blog, I'll give you a little history.

We have seven amazing blessings. Four came to us from across the oceans (Russia and Ethiopia).

Our family seemed so full and so very blessed.
Max came home in 2003, Bekah in 2007, and the twins a short eight months ago in 2010.

Yet thankfully, God was not done with us. We saw a picture of a little girl that we could not get out of our heads. She has a smile that is precious and is considered special needs with "limb differences". We have been told that she WILL walk and run. She has a long road ahead of her though, she must undergo amputations and be fitted with prosthesis once home.


God pressed us...I was brought to my knees...that this is our daughter.

Jael is 2 1/2 years old and has been in the orphanage since birth. This is one amazing little girl!!!

As with many adoptions, we have financial needs that still remain. We've put a "Donate" button on the side of the blog for those that GOD leads to give. We are at least $10,000 short, but we stand knowing that GOD WILL provide!!!

Also, even more greatly than finances, we covet prayers. GOD has blessed us more than you can ever imagine during our adoptive journeys and every time we have been washed in prayers...literally drenched.

If you have a moment (or several) we would love prayers as we go through our process.

Here are our immediate prayer needs.

*For Jael, that someone is whispering about JESUS' love into her ear. That her heart is prepared for family and that a hedge of protection surrounds her.
*That GOD's Hand is on every aspect of our adoption...blessing it.
*That ALL paperwork for the home study (we are in process of an update) comes in quickly.
*That the physicals needed for the adoption goes wonderfully and that the interview (psychologist~agency required) goes great as well.
*That finances come together smoothly and that our tax return also comes in quicker than expected (we saw a notice yesterday that we needed to submit more paperwork).
*That we are protected against satan's attacks...they have been small, but constant.

Thank you all for covering us in prayer and thank you, if GOD leads you to give, for that blessing on our family as well.

"He replied, 'You of little faith, why are you so afraid?' Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm." Matthew 8:26

  3. Hi Kat, I've been praying for protection for your family and Jael (His angels surrounding you)and for Him to organise everything to go smoothly.

    Jael, I think it's pronounced Yah-el in Hebrew(Yah is God). Sweet girl :)

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.
