"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

Please pray for Noel

Per my request last week to bring some closure to the possibility that we would still be able to bring Noel home, our agency contacted her orphanage to see how she is doing. The returning news isn't good. Her condition has gotten worse. In addition to the large amount of fluid around her heart, she now has fluid on her brain and her kidney is getting large. They believe her organs are overworked and that it doesn't look good.

I had prepared myself to hear that she had gone to be with our Heavenly Father, which I think would be better than this. My heart sinks; I pray that she is not in any discomfort.

Thank you for all your continued prayers. I firmly believe that we were brought into Noel's life to shower her with prayers, with His grace and mercy; with your help, we have done that. So even though I still desperately pray that God would miraculously cure her of what ails her precious body - I know and understand that His will will be done, whatever that may be.

I will have our agency check in on her again in another 6 weeks or so. They said just to e-mail them when I want that to happen.

  1. That poor sweet thing. I think you're exactly right that if nothing else, this has been a way to cover her in prayer throughout the course of her illness. Praying that God wraps his arms around her and relieves her of any pain, discomfort, and fear that she may be feeling. Strength in prayer!
