We need your prayers please. Aliyah began to grieve after her afternoon nap yesterday. She has been crying and refusing to eat and drink. This is no surprise to us, especially after we found out how special her relationship was with her nanny. Even though we expected this, it does not make it any easier. Please pray for us and Aliyah. Pray that Joel will have the strength he needs these next few days as Aliyah prefers to be with him --she does not want to be put down. She is very scared and unsure and we are doing our very best to comfort her.  Her shoes seem to be very comforting to her so we have been leaving them on, even while she sleeps. Please  pray that God will begin to heal her broken heart. Pray for us as her parents and family that we will feel God's presence with us and that we will have the strength we need as we try to bring comfort and security to our daughter. It is heartbreaking to watch your child grieve and know that there is nothing you can do to take their pain away.
"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..
~Isiah 43:1-3
