Today is my sister’s 18th birthday! It is so cool. I am so proud of everything that she has already accomplished in her life and I am so excited to see what God is calling her to in the future.
This past week has also marked my mum’s birthday as well. There has been so much celebration in my house as we let these two AMAZING ladies know just how special they are to us.
I will continue to let the birthday boy/girl/mum/dad chose who I will pray for on their birthday as a way to celebrate their life and the lives of children who still wait for a family.
My sister chose Elize: http://reecesrainbow.org/98787/elize
Elize is an amazing young lady who despite working through the challenges of being deaf loves to communicate and does very well in school. Wiggles (my sister) would love to see this young lady at home with her family and have some awesome conversations with her new mum and dad!
My mum decided to chose the sibling group of Aaron, Abby, Accel, and Addy. http://reecesrainbow.org/99505/4-siblings
These four kids are strongly attached to one another and as my mum says “all kids need mums and dads to love them. There are enough losses in adoption without kids having to lose their siblings as well.” As a mother who adopted a sibling group of four my mum has seen how hard it is to adopt a sibling group but also the joys that come along with it.
Thank You for my Mum and for Wiggles. Thank You for putting such amazing people into my life. I pray that as we celebrate their birthdays they will see in us a small glimpse of the love that You have for them.
Lord, I also pray for Elize. Thank You so much for this young lady. Please bring forward a family for her. Thank You that she is out going and loves to communicate with others. I pray that this will help her to attach to the family that You have chosen for her.
I pray also for the four children that wait together. Please bring a family forward so that they can stay together. Please give the family the strength to help all of them grow into the people You have chosen for them and also help the children know that they are all important and all matter.
In Your name I pray,
