A Little Quick Housekeeping

Hi Everyone!

Super excited!  Jake and Hope got their visa (as per my post earlier this morning) and they will be on their way home tomorrow!  Please pray for safe travels!

The local paper covered our family’s story.  You can read that here.  Hoping to get a hold of the lovely reporter who interviewed us to get it updated with the awesome news!

My sweet girl is coming home and just in time, her discomfort is increasing, she is not doing well and I don’t know how much longer she would be able to go without care.  We are so blessed that God has interceded on our behalf right when we needed it the most.  Your prayers have been felt friends!  God has used them to do marvelous things.

Thank you all so so much for sticking with us as we finish this marathon, that went a couple miles longer than it was intended 😉

Please continue to follow along and see what love will do for these precious children!  There is so much of this story that has yet to be told, and I am excited to continue it as we move forward and get settled in.

Keep us in your prayers as we will be leaving our home again for a few days to be with Hope at the children’s hospital, as she is being admitted upon arrival in-country.  Pray especially for her peace and comfort.  Hospitals are quite often traumatizing places for institutionalized children who have been abused and neglected in hospitals prior to coming home.  There is no way of knowing ahead of time how she will handle it.  Pray for her!  And also that the painful care, pokes and such, will be at a minimum so that her stress levels might stay down.

Pray also for little Jacob.  He will also be seen and evaluated, which may be stressful.  But most of all, leaving our home is terrifying for him.  We will be staying the night elsewhere and he may think we are not coming back.  This is so hard, even though we are able to get a translator to explain, he just has trouble wrapping his mind around leaving a place and coming back to it.

Thank you again and may God richly bless all of you as you have so blessed us these last several months.
