Dear friends and family,
We are so excited that we have accepted the referral of a little 2 year old boy from China. We can not share his photo or identifying information on this blog but we thought we would share this brief video of the CP hospital where he lives. Please join us in praying that we will be able to go to bring him home by January. We would covet your prayers for the rest of the paperwork especially our next step which is getting immigration approval. We praise God for leading us on this journey to May God bless you all.
In the grip of His grace,
I am waiting.... somewhere far... far...away on the other side of the world.
I may not know who you are or what you look like,
but some how deep in my heart I know you are out there.
That one day you will come and find me.
It's a long journey, and it takes a lot of time....
I wish it could be easier.
But I know that the ones who come for me will not count the cost.
The will only see the joy of finding me.
For now I abide in the fields of the fatherless.
Day by day wondering why my life couldn't have been different?
It is so lonely...
Even though I am surrounded by hundreds of other children,
I know that something is missing... I know in my heart I need a place to call home.
My arms long to be wrapped in a fathers embrace...
I long to be saved by a mother's love...
Gazing out the orphanage window, I offer a prayer of hope,
"Oh God please help them come quickly."
Even as I lay in the darkness each night somehow I feel assured,
That no matter how lost I appear I am not alone.
Holy hands guard my steps; sacred fingers wipe my tear, touching my lonely heart.
The one who made me,
The God that knew me before I was born.
Hears me every time I call.
He whispers His promise in my ear.
I listen with home to his voice,
But what I worry about the most is that no one wants to look for me.
The fields are vast and there are so many scattered all over the earth.
I wonder how one little child, so lost, can be found?
Yet He calms my heart and assures me that He will find you.
That He will make sure that you hear His voice clearly.
He has promised me that He will make a way through the fields,
That He will personally cut a path, and lead you right to my orphanage door.
My prayer is...
When He speaks... Please don't forget to listen...
When He calls don't be too afraid to go
For I am waiting... somewhere, far... far... away
On the other side of the world
To come Home.
The Lord supports the afflicted. Psalm 147:6
I found this short poem and I wanted to share it. It made me all the more excited to bring my brother home! :D Please continue to pray for us and for our new little one. Thanks!
