Week of Prayer Day 7

And finally we ask on this last day for prayer for our time coming home and those first number of hours/days/weeks/ and months. Remembering from just a few short months ago those first few months are ROUGH at best. Please lift up that time, pray for protection during that time, pray for wisdom during that…

Week of Prayer Day 5

We pray today for this process. For the hundreds of children in South Korea without families and for the thousands upon thousands of children around this world that don’t have a place to call home and a family to love and be loved by. My heart breaks that there are children that go to bed…

Week of Prayer Day 4

Intro To Prayer Week for our Adoptions

Every time we sit down to a meal or at bedtime and I ask who wants to pray Edric immediately pipes up and says “Paxton home soon, Ppelia home soon” his pronounciation is a little off still, but it warms my heart. Those two little ones are prayed for many times a day by their…

Foster Family/Korea/children waiting- We are so indebted to the Kim family (Edric’s Foster family) and the love that they have poured out to Edric each and every day since they took custody of him when he was just 4 months old.

Final Approval/Custody- Once we are granted Final Approval we will be able to travel back and take custody and obtain Edric’s Visa and bring him home.
