A Father's Day GIFT and God is Still Stirring

Thomas got a mini Father's Day blessing today.  

Timothy was able to stand without hip pain. 

This is HUGE.  He couldn't wish for anything more,..okay, well, maybe his girls across the world (smile).
You should have seen Thomas' face!

A year ago, this was our little guys feet and legs.


Now his feet are FLAT.  His hips were not in his socket, NOW they are.

Don't let anyone, any group, say it's better for children to remain in
an orphanage in their own country instead of being in a family.

I'm not saying pat us on the back. I'm saying these children are a BLESSING 
and the difference a family makes...a father makes...is MASSIVE.
Every child should have someone to fight for them.
Every child should have someone to tickle them until 
they can barely catch their breaths.  
EVERY.CHILD.

This little boy's file is with one of the VERY BEST agencies we have used.  
This little guy is without an earthly 
father on Father's Day.  He NEEDS A FAMILY.

He goes by "Ben" (not his real name).
He's only 2.5 years old.  

There are so many children out there, domestically...so many....across the world...so many.

It's Father's Day.  There's not a more perfect day to seek God. 

This little guy needs a family and so do many others.

Contact us at 1thomkat(at)verizon(dot) net if you want to know more about little Ben and we 
will put you in touch with the agency.

Through beautiful blessing, $200 was JUST donated moments ago to help bring Grace and Hope home!!!!  Thank you so much  to the precious friend who sacrificed to bring our girls home.  We are JUST SO CLOSE!!!!!  We "should" get our Travel Approval this week!  Unless it comes tonight, we (Amy and I) will most likely travel the week of July 9th (said prayerfully).  We appreciate prayers that our Travel Approval comes! It's all in God's Hands and timing!

We only need $2090.00!!!! We are almost to breaking the $2000 threshold!!!!  Just weeks ago we needed over $10,000!!!! GOD IS MOVING!!!!



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

If you don't know what's going on, please read Mountains Crumble...It Happened!!! Peel Me Off the Ceiling!

If you hear God nudging your heart or speaking to your spirit about helping bring our girls home....

*Feel free to share our need with anyone God leads you to.  We now only need $2090!  We broke that $3000 barrier and $200  since I posted this morning!!!  

*You can email us at 1thomkat(at)verizon(dot)net and we will share our phone number (if you'd like to chat) or  address.  

*The LifeSong for Orphans account has been closed.  We are so close to travel that we need to insure any funds have a chance to get to us.  If something is already on the way, it will still get to us in time! No worries!  If you would like a tax deductible way to give, you can email us at 1thomkat(at)verizon(dot)net.  We do have someone will to take donations.

*We have a YouCaring Page.   It hasn't been updated in a long time.  I will try to update the total tonight.  A small percentage is taken out  with each donation, but it's linked directly to our adoption account.

*Our PayPal address can be used (using the "Family and Friends" method) to donate with nothing taken out if that's easiest.  Our email is 1thomkat(at)verizon(dot)net.  

*If you have an idea that may help, please feel free to email us as well. We never know how God may work!!!

Whatever avenue you feel comfortable with, thank you.  
Thank you for answering the call that will change the life of two little girls and our family forever.

  Thank you for the sacrifice...just thank you.

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

Several have asked about our needs for the girls.  Our biggest need, we were just told, is being provided (a new specific car seat).   We are overwhlemed, yet again, and so very grateful!!!! Most of the needs we have are smaller.  We've been hesitant to share since getting the girls home has to be our first priority.  We do have a baby registry on Amazon with items needed and though not posting the link on here, you can email us at 1thomkat (at) verizon (dot) net if you would like it . The second biggest item is a second baby carrier (the first may not come in time and both can be used with both girls) that we can use in country (not on the registry -----https://mykinderpack.com/collections/standard-size/products/black-koolnit-mesh-standard-kinderpack-baby-carrier?variant=30825777677 with plus size straps).  It's expensive and NOT anywhere the same priority as getting the girls home!!!! NOT EVEN CLOSE!!!!!

We thank you as well for thinking about our girls needs.  Again, our absolute first priority is bringing them home, please understand.  It's NOT that we don't want to share.

PRAYER REQUESTS: (They are now all immanent...smile)

1. THAT GOD IS GLORIFIED IN EVERY STEP OF THIS ADOPTION.

2.  I feel a deep need to have everyone join us in prayer for the attachment of our girls.  Please pray they have NO attachment issues and attach to us as a family very quickly.  We have been in the adoption world enough to know severe attachment issues exist.  We pray that GRACE and HOPE have NO issues with attachment...NONE (that God prepares them as well).

. 3. For Grace and Hope, that they are healthy, loved on, and protected. Please pray that they dream of us and attach quicker than ANYONE could imagine.

4. PLEASE pray protection against ALL of satan's schemes.  He's been messing with our family and with Amy and her family.  PLEASE pray a strong concrete, cement, gold, silver (smile) wall between our lives and his schemes.

5.  That we have "MORE THAN ENOUGH" for this trip.  PLEASE PRAY FOR $2,090 in less than THREE WEEKS and please pray for those individuals God is touching to help us financially bring home the girls.

6. Please pray for Thomas and I to see clearly where God is leading and what WE are to do.  

7.  Please pray that I can fully recover and can gain strength before travel comes (both Thomas and I on the last part...physical strength)

8. That my traveling companion (Amy) and I stay well (completely) within country and are safe....not even a nauseous stomach which commonly happens at least once.

 9. That God uses us/speaks through us while we are there, see what we need to see and doing what we need to do.

10. That our families are safe while we are gone and that it is a peaceful (and safe) time for them.

11. For Timothy's complete healing...and that he has walking and running in his future (smile).  That his pain is minimal.

12. Please pray for the Stewart family as they mourn the loss of their father, grandfather, and great grandfather, uncle, brother, and loved one.

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.
