This morning I was so excited to see my friend Shelly had updated her blog from China but then soon my heart sank as I saw the blog post title! I actually said a prayer before I read it......
You can read all about their trip at Hoot's Mom and see their beautiful little girl that they have waited to meet for SO long! Most of all today I ask you to say a prayer for them as they become a family of four and for the days ahead as they are going to have to have some huge adjustments! There is no doubt in my mind that God sent her to be in their family....they are going to be awesome parents to her and Hoot will be the best big brother!
Another prayer request I have is for another friend of mine that is in the adoption process for twins from Haiti. They are adorable! I actually took some pictures of them for her while we were there. Well last night she got the news that one of them had passed away after a lump had turned into a wound and even though he was being treated for it and being well taken care of God decided to take him home. My heart just breaks for this family....the birthfamily.....the caretakers....but most of all his brother! Even though they are babies they are always together....they eat together play together and sleep in the same crib together. I know he is going to miss him!
Please say a prayer for these two families....I know I have and will continue too!
