We are now number 14 total on the list, and in the single digits for a little girl.... We are number 9
I can hardly believe it, we are so crazy in love with this little girl we have no idea who she is, but we know that she is ours. I am so thankful for the Lord placing the burden on our hearts to adopt, He never ceases to amaze me with how good He is and how much He wants us to draw close to Him through everything. Please be praying for our little girl, she is most likely born at this point in time, please pray for her health and safety, that she will be strong and well in the orphanage. We are also praying for this little ones birth family, We are already eternally grateful to them for the gift of this precious child, and pray that they will know Christ as their personal Lord and savior.

We are within weeks of being matched with our daughter and are so excited to see all that God has in store. This last week we had the chance to go on a mini family vacation ( nathan needed to go to a work conference) So the boys and I tagged along, we all had the best time, and we also realized this will be our last trip as a family of 4. We were headed home on Wednesday afternoon and the mini van started to make some weird noises, so Nathan pulled over and he checked everything out, we made some calls and got the advise based on everything we could see the engine was going out and we were to just make it as close to home as possible then call for someone to come pick us up, the van finally died about 1 hour from home. I had spent the entire trip crying and just praying, telling myself that God know our circumstances better then we do, He is in control of all things. So this brings me to the title of this post , we are "Calling All Prayer Warriors" The van is officially dead and we don't have a vehicle that can fit 3 car seats in, and we are within a few weeks possible or being matched with our little girl which also means writing a check for $10,000. We are in need of $8,000 yet to reach our goal , and then we will have some expenses for travel. I am trying so hard to just leave all this at Jesus' feet and trust Him to supply our needs, He knows them even better then we do. Please pray that we will be diligent in seeking the Lord in all of this and that God will meet our needs for a vehicle and also for the adoption. Please don't take this as just a request for money, I just know that we need to have people joining us in prayer laying these things down before our Almighty God.
I know when all is said and done and this little one is home forever we will be able to proclaim the name of our Lord and say "Look and see what the Lord has done" not to us O Lord but to Your name be the glory.
