Scott leaves to meet our girls soon. Will you please cover him in prayer? He is the first adoptive parent to visit this orphanage since August. Friends, he is walking in to battleground between heaven and hell for the lives of over a hundred innocent children. It will be so hard on him to leave our girls behind while we wait for the adoption to be finalized. I cannot imagine how he will bear seeing all of the children who have no family coming (at least not yet). Who lay day after day in a crib with no stimulation and no love. He has a tender heart but a warrior spirit. He will want to do something but in this case, he will only be able to pray and will have to walk away. Please, please pray for his heart and his safety! Please pray that our girls will respond to him. They have never known gentleness or love. They are not used to being touched at all.
UPDATE: I just found out that Scott twisted his neck wrong and is in a lot of pain. Please pray that he will feel better before he boards his plane to Europe!
Reece's Rainbow is the organization through which we found our girls. They have been helping us raise funds for the adoption - see our FSP to the right. They have an amazing opportunity to win a $50,000 grant! This will help fund the adoption of 10 children! Imagine, 10 children who have never experienced a family suddenly being loved and cherished. All we have to do is vote! Please, please, will you click the link below and vote? It takes 5 seconds and costs nothing but can make a world of difference. You can vote once daily and the voting ends in just a couple of weeks. Please!
Now on to the wonderful children who wait.
First up, meet Chip. He is 10 and needs a family so desperately. Look at his sad little face. I can just imagine it all lit up in a smile!
Look at beautiful Angelina! What a wonderful daughter she will make her family. She is only five and would benefit so much from therapy here.
Lastly, we have Andrew. Look at that grin! He looks like he stopped causing trouble just long enough for a picture. Be ready for a good time if you add this little seven year old to your family!
