Annie

Today my youngest sister helped to choose a child to pray for. She really wants Annie to be able to have a family. Could you help spread the word that Annie is waiting for a family? My sister knows what it is like to be waiting for a family and she is glad that she is adopted. She wants other kids who are still waiting to get adopted as well!

annie-1-225x300Annie was born in 2010 with the complete absence of her arm. She also has mixed specific developmental disorder, astigmatism,  hypermetropia (farsightedness), and hypertrophy of tonsils listed to her name. She is living in Eastern Europe and is available to be adopted by large families and older parents. So far she has just over $180 gifted to her on Reece’s Rainbow, hopefully it will be a help for the family that will come forward to call her their own. http://reecesrainbow.org/118367/annie-2

Would you please pray with me and my sister that she will have a family soon?

Dear Lord,

Thank you for Annie. Thank you for her smile, I pray that she will have reason to keep on smiling. Please show her Your love and grace. Please bring forward a family for her. May they not be scared by the list of medical conditions but be strengthened by You and remember that she is a little girl not a medical condition.

Thank you that my sister has a heart for other kids who are waiting for families. She remembers how it used to be and loves having a family. I pray that Annie will get to experience this feeling of love and support.

For You and Your kingdom, I pray,

Amen.

 

Three awesome kids!!!

These three kids are on Reece’s rainbow and I believe that they live in Taiwan. Though I did not meet them I was privileged enough to visit their AMAZING country! It is my prayer that they will find families to love them, teach them, and care for and about them for the rest of their lives!!!

Cullen has a mild physical disability which affects his lower extremities. He is also diagnosed with cerebral hypoplasia, severe mental developmental delay, and epilepsy. Beyond all his diagnoses however Cullen is just an 11 year old kid who needs some love, patience and stability in his life.

Merlin! This little guy was born October 2007. Unfortunately he was hospitalized for a long period of time after he was born. He lived with his birth mother until January 2010 but is now living in an orphanage. He receives therapy in his orphanage (Yay!). Merlin is diagnosed with moderate intellectual deficiency and congenital cardio disease.

Dear Lord,

Thank you for Heather, Cullen, and Merlin.

Thank you for Taiwan and the people there and that these three awesome kiddos are apart of Taiwan itself.

I pray that You will provide families for these three that will love them and care for them through their medical needs and through their lives. I pray that they will encourage them and help them to be the best that they can be.

Lord, may You be with these kids and let them know that You love them and cherish them and that they mean everything to You because You created them and You love them with Your whole heart.

Lord, please help us to love the people that You have placed in our lives the way You love Heather, Cullen, and Merlin.

For Your glory and Your kingdom, I pray.

Amen.

Awards night!!!!!!

Tonight was the awards night for the club team that I coach for, and my brothers, Kiwi Boy and Warrior, swim for. Both boys were recognised with awards!

  
Kiwi Boy received the “rookie of the year” award. 

Warrior recieved the coaches merit award for his group. 
Sawyer and Finn are an awesome pair of brothers (like my brothers) who are waiting in Europe for a family of their own.

  
Dear Lord,

Thank you for Sawyer and Finn. Thank you that they are brothers and that they have the awesome blessing to be adopted together as brothers.

I pray that a family will step forward and adopt these brothers together so that they can stay together as BROTHERS.

Thank you, for Sawyer. Lord, I pray that this 13 year old boy will be loved and cared for. I pray that his family will help him get the glasses his needs for his farsightedness and his astigmatism.

I also thank you Lord for Finn, an awesome 10 year old boy. I pray that the family that you have chosen for this young man will help him be all that he can be and help him to have all the things he needs for his cleft palate, inguinal hernia, scrotocle, and his developmental delays.

Thank you so much for these boys! May you bless them and the family that will bring them home as their boys so that they can be SONS, BROTHERS, GRANDSONS, NEPHEWS, and COUSINS!

In Jesus’ name,

Amen.
