Pray (adoption)



I have been in a constant state of ongoing prayer for my husband’s cousin who is in the middle of adopting a newborn babygirl. The young mother of the baby girl is a mere 15 years old and in no condition to take care of a baby. The little girl was born on Monday and Expresso's cousin and her husband has had her since Tuesday. I can only imagine the joy they have been experiencing with their new baby girl. It was unfortunetly interrupted this evening when the baby's bio-family called and announced to come get her. I can not immagine the sinking feeling in their hearts as they realized their little girl was about to be taken away. Expresso's mother called to imform us of the news and I was deeply concerned for all of them. Expresso and I immediatly opened our bibles and got on the floor in prayer. A few minutes after we found out the baby's bio-family decided to sleep on it... oh, praise God! It is certain to me that He anwsered our prayers. I know that God is with them in this very uncertain and extremely difficult time and I just ask that you would please plead with God with us to allow our family to keep this baby girl. The family of the baby is in extremely bad conditions and is in no way fit to raise a child. (grandmother of baby girl has a bad history with her own children, fatalities and custoday battles) Sunday is the finalization of the adoption, please pray that they will make it to Sunday and that signatures will be signed on that day releasing her into my husband's cousin's arms permanitly.


The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ~Phillipians 4:5b-7
