Please Pray

I know I haven't been here in awhile. So sorry. Having way too much fun, first with the snow and then with my parents being here for 10 days, and all of us celebrating the boys birthdays...I'll have to update you later. For now, I'd like to share some things with you that are weighing heavy on our hearts, in hopes that you might pray.

First and foremost I have a new friend who is adopting from Ethiopia, got the referral not too long ago. Little Ella Victoria, they would be able to get her in about 3 more months or maybe sooner. But they've gotten word that she is very sick, VERY sick. Please pray for little Ella, and then for Sweet Courtney and John as you can imagine it's very hard to love her so much and not be there to hold her during this time.

Also, some sweet friends of ours are going through the adoption process for their little girl that they've had since she was under two and now she's four. They are battling the courts and hopefully their last two days are next week. Please pray for little Mikayla and that she'd be protected from her abusive mother and finally be adopted by her loving parents Michael and Stephanie.

And last but certainly not least....

These two, actually they are a three. But they have gone through the ringer with trying to have another baby. They got 'the call' this past week that a birth mama has called them and they are currently meeting her and maybe gettin' chosen. Please pray for them and their sweet little family, that all goes okay and that in less than a month, they'll be a four, no longer a three.

'...may HE give them all the desires of their hearts...'

Thank you for praying.
