"By adopting a child and helping them reach their potential, they help us reach ours. An adopted child is not an unwanted child; to the contrary. They are a child who was searched for, prayed for, cried for, begged for; received by arms that ached, making empty hearts full. Love is meant to be shared." Author unknown

Hat, hats and more hats

I received a package in the mail today, something I purchased for Noel before we received the news of her being pulled from the adoption. I debated on not opening it, knowing what was inside but the more I think of her the more I can pray for her - so I opened it, cried and prayed to my Heavenly Father about how badly I wanted the little girl who is meant to wear these to come home to us. That she deserves to have a family who can love on her and care for her.  To show her just how precious she is in our eyes and in His. That she deserves to have a life.

My intention of these hats weren't to hide her but to help her blend in.  My thought was with her hair so short, you could easily see the large Nevus spots on her scalp, these would lessen the staring eyes and many questions (not that I have a problem with people asking, would rather that than the stares).  These would help cover and protect the Nevus until her hair has time to grow out.

I also have a package coming with a bunch of Daisy flower clips to put on these hats to fancy them up. How cute that will be. It will give me another chance to think about and plead to our Lord about her health and joining our family (on top of the many times I will continue to do this between now and then).


  1. They are just precious!
    I can just see her sweet little head all dolled up with those cute hats and sweet daisy clips. We are crying out for all of your (and our) prayers to be heard. Please let sweet Noel come home to her forever family.

  2. I have just started following when I read your post on one of the sites. May I offer you a prayer. Heavenly Father I ask that you hear this Mothers cry and give her peace that surpasses ALL understanding. That you would give her the correct information on why this is happening, after all FATHER we all stand on your promise I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him. 1 Samuel 1 -27
    Father we are asking that you see to this families needs. That you make away where there is none today. Father you say if we would have the faith the size of a mustard seed we can say to the mountain....move out of the way and NOTHING is impossible. Mountain of lack of information, be removed!!!!! of poor health, be removed,hopelessness, get out of the way!!!! we are praying for a miracle...and giving you the glory all the more...
    From a new mommy that had a very bumpy road and seen a mountain move!
    Blessings my friend
