Alivia's Prayer

Dear Jesus,
Please help my sister come home soon.
I love her
and I really, really want to talk to her.
I love you Jesus.

I do not think I could have said it any better. We are still waiting to hear from China about our LOA. Somedays we seem to handle the wait alright. Somedays are not so easy. Today has been one of those not so easy days, even for the kids. We knew going into this adoption that the wait would be long and hard, but it still does not make it any easier. Our hearts are getting tired and we are clinging to the words of Jesus with all the strength we have left.

Proverbs 3:5-6
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.

I'm praying your family is made whole soon! I can't even imagine what you are feeling as you wait, but it is all in His timing.

Thank you for the prayers ladies! I am feeling a bit better. God sure is faithful and even though we are waiting He is reminding us that He is with us. ~Becca

"Fear not for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you... For I am the Lord your God..
