Crazy Love over at "a place called simplicity"


Linny has set up a "Crazy Love" Link that I am going to link to. I have never met this woman but her love for God and the orphan inspire me EVERY DAY!

She wanted everyone to share a need they had so we could all come together and help each other. Friends, I NEED PRAYER!!!! That is it, nothing more and nothing less will take care of our family.

For those of you that will come here that don't know me, we are a foster family who currently has a little boy that needs a home! He met a family Tuesday that I was VERY hopeful about that I found out today decided NOT to adopt him. That is ok, it must not have been the right family, but GOD KNOWS WHO THE FAMILY IS!!! He has a family that is meeting him tomorrow that I would love to be prayed from as well as they make this decision. We need to see our boy go to the home GOD has planned for him! Will you pray for us?


Thank YOU!!!

“For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for him,” (Philippians 1:29)

Don't get me wrong, I don't feel like there has been much if any real "suffering" in my life, but this verse helps me to remember the mind set I need to have.

Leah,
First, I am praying for this boy! I know that God has the exact family that has a hole in it that he will fill. Dear Jesus, open the hearts of that family. Help them move beyond their fears. Help them to see this boy and KNOW he is their son. Amen. I will continue to pray this weekend.

Second, thanks for visiting my blog and giving me the advice to add a Chip-in! Third, we are learning to live frugally and I know I am going to learn a lot from your other blog.

I love this Crazy Love party. I am getting to pray for, be aware of, so many incredible people doing some pretty amazing things.

HI! I came over to visit you from Linny's blog.
My husband and I have two bio children and one adopted from China. We are currently in the process of becoming foster parents but last week I really started to question if that's what we are suppose to do. There's a little voice (we all know Who that could be) telling me that we should adopt again. I feel a pull to the foster care system but maybe it's not to foster but to adopt.
I'm not really sure why I'm telling you this...I haven't really shared this with anyone else and we don't even know one another...it just seems appropriate and necessary for some reason.
Regardless, I will pray for you and your foster son. May we all end up sharing our lives and our hearts with the people God intends for us too!

Kateri, I hope you come back and read this, I click on your name but there was no way for me to contact you. I would love for you to shoot me an email so we can chat. We were drawn to adoption first, then decided to work on adopting through foster care...it has been a crazy ride and we never dreamed we wouldn't be adopting EVERY child that came into this house, but God has seen fit to have us wait to see what HE will do.

Like I said, I would love to chat sometime!

all of us with love said...

I am praying for your family, your foster childs situation.
