Prayer NEEDED please!

Here are some fun times we have had in the last week as we prepare for Christmas......

Christmas crafts....and yes my husband is wearing a winter cap in the house
Matthew's Adoption Day home made apple pie that we enjoyed last night.

Our PRAYER NEED: We found out that if we do not receive our USCIS approval before the 29/30th we will have to reschedule our January 1st court hearing in ETH for Naomi! I can't tell you how much this rips my heart out and stomps all over it. Just wanting to be honest!

We are praying that we get APPROVAL ASAP!!!!!!!!!!! We know that we will NEVER STOP FIGHTING FOR OUR NAOMI!!!!! We would do WHATEVER IT TAKES!!!!!!!!! HOWEVER LONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Because she is our daughter, but we are pleading and begging that we would be able to pass and go pick her up sooner rather than later! Because she needs her family!!!!

We are trying to relax and enjoy our family time, but it is hard when your heart is in pieces.

People are serious when they say praising God in the hard times- is hard, but we will continue- NO MATTER WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. You are in our prayers. I am so sorry you are having to go through all of this.

  2. My mommy's heart is SOOOOO right there with your mommy's heart. I wish we could gather together to hug and cry and pray. I am lifting up your family in prayer.

    Love in Jesus,

  3. Oh :o( Praying!!!!! Sending you huge {{{hugs}}}. Hang in there! Praying you get to enjoy a very Merry Christmas,

  4. We have been praying daily and will continue to pray!!!

  5. Praying for you guys! BTW-I still have all of those Thomas cars and of all the Nerf guns we have owned or played with, our favorite is the Maverick!

  6. The God who orchestrated the heavens IS orchestrating putting your family together and it WILL be beautiful in His time.
    Praying for peace in the process and joy in the moments.
    Delighting in Him

  7. What an amazing family...that's all i have to say!
    Merry Christmas!

  8. Hello! I don't know if you'll remember me...I was a trumpet player in your band in AC...Abby (Bloom). I'm sure I was a snotty high-schooler, but I promise I've grown up now! :)
    Anyways, ran across your blog through a connection on Facebook. *WOW* What an awesome family and ministry you have!! I'll pray for you!
