LID has Arrived!

January 28, 2010

Our LID arrived January 28, 2010... one week to the day after our PA.

Everything seems to happen on Thursdays. Every morning Jason prays more specifically for a particular family member. Thursdays are Gabriella's day for prayer.

Jesus Says...

I remember every day of your life. Psalm 139:16
I will never leave you or forsake you. Hebrews 13:5
Every moment I see where you are! Psalm 139:3
I help you when you are sick, and care for your hurts and worries. Psalm 41:3
Do not be afraid. I am here to help you. Isaiah 41:13
I come near to help you when you are feeling sad. Psalm 34:18

I Saw You Before You Were Born

The words in Psalm 139 bring much comfort when I think about my precious baby girl so far away.

I (the Lord) saw you even before you were born. I watch you and protect you each day. All through the night I am with you. And when you wake in the morning I will be here beside you.

Thank you Lord for putting a hedge of protection around our little one.

Happy Birthday Gabriella...You Get a Family Today!

From China comes a tiny plea...
Won’t someone come and rescue me?
I long to see a mother’s face...
to feel the warmth of her embrace
My heart is longing for a home...
For a family I can call my own
As I wait…I whisper a silent prayer...
Please God can’t you find them
I know they’re out there…...Somewhere

Gabriella is too young to ask for a family, but was granted a wish, a prayer, she didn't even know she had. It was granted the week of her 3rd birthday.

We already love you to the moon and back Baby Girl!
