From The Heart of a Child~Natalee

A couple of days ago a $15 donation came into our account.  The note attached warmed my soul.  The heart in this little girl is HUGE.  God has a beautiful future for her.

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and 
do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven 
belongs to such as these.”
Matthew 19:14

This is what her father had to say.


"Our Natalee (8 yrs) picked the extra strawberries from our patch that we 
weren't eating. We're moving, and decided freezing them was too much 
work. Since Natalee put in the work, we let her choose what to do 
with them. She decided to sell them. After we put them on Facebook 
for sale by "however much you can afford" Natalee told me she didn't 
really need the money from their sale and decided she'd like it 
to go to bring Grace and Glory home. This money 
is from the sale of Natalee's strawberries 
on behalf of your girls."

Oh my mama heart!  Thank you Natalee for sacrificing on behalf of our girls.   

You are a gift from God!  

In about three weeks we will be on our way to them!

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 had $100 come today!  We now only need $4060!

*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 left open IF that avenue is better (For Grace and Hope).  It IS tax deductible.  There may not be time to mail a check directly to LifeSong, have it processed there, and have it sent to us though.  Giving through them online has a small fee taken out, but is quicker.  We will only be keeping our account through LifeSong open for another week.  We would love to keep it open longer, but need to insure we have enough time to receive any funds donated through them before we travel.  Our total will need to reach $10,900 on LifeSong to be fully funded.  

*Our PayPal address can be used (using the "Family and Friends" method) to 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.

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 FOR $4,060 in THREE WEEKS and please pray for those individuals God is touching to help us financially bring home the girls.

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

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

7. 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.

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

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

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

11. 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.
