Another Update on KatieJoy

We got word today that KatieJoy is still in the ICU, she is not stable enough to be moved to a regular room.On the positive side, she is breathing on her her own and we are so grateful to God for this good news!! We ask that you would pray for healing in her little body and that you would consider buying a t-shirt to help us bring her home!

T-Shirt Fundraiser

We are selling shirts to help bring KatieJoy home...

Surgery Update

We received word last Monday morning that KatieJoy was having surgery that day, which means that by the time the email got to us ( due to the time difference) she had already had the surgery. Being that this was a major heart surgery we were on pins and needles for the next two days. On Wednesday we got an email stating that her surgery went well and that she was recovering well but that that is all the doctors are wanting to say and now we must wait and pray. Not the most comforting words to hear but we were very thankful that she came through the surgery. We are continuing to praying for healing and strength for our little girl and we ask that you would please join us:)

"My Little Daughter"

Adoption is not JUST a journey in the rescuing of a child, it's so much more than that! It's a place where our self sufficiency collides with God's sovereignty and we find ourselves broken before a loving and gracious Father who breaks us and molds us and shapes us and takes us to the deep valleys  while over and over again assuring us of His unfailing love....I daily pray for faith like Jarius.."Then came one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name, and seeing him, he fell at his feet and implored him earnestly, saying, "My little daughter is at the point of death. Come and lay your hands on her, so that she may be made well and live."  (Mark 5:21-22). This is the cry of my heart, that Jesus would lay his hands on KatieJoy's heart and heal her... that she too would be made well and live! This is where my faith has to step in and where my worry and fear must turn into praise and adoration. This is why adoption is a journey ... a story ... Not written by me but crafted by a Gracious Father...

Please commit to praying for us during this process.Pray for KatieJoy's upcoming surgery, pray for the paperwork to be handled quickly and for God to provide financially so that we can bring her home.
