Helping Them Come Home

This post is linked with one of our dear bloggy friends' family website. Linny (click here to read her post about helping orphaned children come home to their forever families) is an advocate for orphans all around the world and the families who are called to bring them home.

She has issued a call to pray and help families in the midst of the adoption process and for those families to post on their blogs about their needs.

We are one of those families in the midst of the adoption process. We are "paper pregnant" and are waiting for this beautiful little girl, our daughter, to come home.

Our prayer needs at this point are . . .

That our I-800A approval would come quickly and that we would be able to send in our dossier soon~

And that we would have the funds needed to complete our adoption of Sophia Lin! God has provided thus far with funds from a garage sale, a jewlery party, and the many generous and loving people who have sent us donations. We are humbled and awed at His great power! (We are also waiting to receive word if we qualify for a Lifesong for Orphans project to help widows and orphans at the same time. This would help us raise money to pay the orphanage donation for Sophia Lin.)

God is good and has led us all the way . . .so we are trusting in Him to provide the provisions needed and to lead us to China once again to bring our daughter home.

Thank you, sweet bloggy friends, for praying with us today. If you would like to donate to help our Sophia come home, just leave me a comment with your e-mail or website address.

Good morning,
I came over to visit from Linny's blog. Your daughter is beautiful! I just wanted to let you know that I prayed for you this morning that God would release that approval for you.

Have a great weekend!
