I Am a Blessed Woman! Father's Day

My Daddy:
No longer on this earth, I miss you painfully.  I can still hear your voice sometimes.
You taught me to think for my self.
You taught me to challenge what everyone accepted as "the norm".

Happy Father's Day!

My Father-in-Law, Lloyd:
Thank you for helping my husband grow into the man he is today!
Hugs and I'm so sorry I missed giving you one in person when you were here.  

Happy Fathers Day!

My husband:  My Other Half:  My Love: My Best Friend:
You have reflected God to our children, giving them just a hint of what our AMAZING Heavenly Father's Love is like (BEYOND understanding).
You have created an environment of laughter, but also respect.
Seeing you become first a father and then a grandfather...wow...there is no comparison.



Happy Father's Day Honey!

My Oldest Son Tom:
You honor your family and daughter with your service.
You have grown so much as a husband and father and it is a privilege to watch!  Alessandra has such a wonderful Daddy!
Happy Father's Day to our Wonderful Son!

Our Son-in-Love Ivan:
You were a gift from the moment you entered our family!
We are so thankful for the father you are to Isabella and husband you are to Sarah!  We are thankful to call you son.
Happy Father's Day You Big Goof!!! (Bwhahahahaaaa)

My Brother Ralph:
Though you tortured me as a child (laughing), you are a WONDERFUL father. 

Happy Father's Day!
(This is an old picture, but our other computer crashed.)

(For some of you, Father's Day can be really hard....just as Mother's Day....when you've lost a child or lost a father. Your father may have been non-existant, abusive, or neglectful. You may long for a true father. You may long to be a father. Know you have ONE that loves you. He will always be there. You are in our thoughts and our hearts. We are praying for you this day.)

 GOD, thank you so much for blessing us with these men who have made such a beautiful difference in my heart and life.  
YOU ARE THE ULTIMATE FATHER.  
I could not survive without you.  You are my life and my breath.  

I will praise God’s name in song
    and glorify him with thanksgiving.
Psalm 69:30

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

Because Grace and Hope are a huge part of Father's Day for us, we still will scream for them with every breath (smile).  God is so good and has brought us SO far.


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 $2290!  We broke that $3000 barrier and $100  was given before I posted yesterday!!!  

*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.

*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.

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

Several have asked about our needs for the girls.  We've been hesitant to share since getting the girls home has to be our first priority.  We do have a baby registry with items needed and though not posting the link on here, you can email us at 1thomkat (at) verizon (dot) net .  We thank you as well for thinking about our girls needs.  Again, our absolute first priority is bringing them home.

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

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 $2,290 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.
