The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure that a man discovered hidden in a field. In his excitement, he hid it again and sold everything he owned to get enough money to buy the field.
Matthew 13:44

I've decided to post a weekly prayer request on Sundays to outline how you can pray for us and other families involved with international and domestic adoptions. If you have a prayer request leave a comment and I'll do my best to include it the following Sunday.

Pray for the governments of China, Russia, and Guatemala. Ask that the obstacles that are slowing the adoption process in China will be removed. Ask that Russia will reopen their international adoption program quickly. Ask that corruption in Guatemala will end and families adopting from there can feel secure.

Pray for the families who are eagerly awaiting their referrals from China. Pray that God will comfort and encourage them as they wait.

Most importantly pray for the children in these countries and at home who are waiting for a forever family. Ask for them to be comforted and protected until they can come home.

Thank you for your love and prayers. Amen.
