Helping Hand

Those of you who have been reading this blog since Zoey and Kate's adoption may remember this story. When we were in the civil affairs office getting the girls, a beautiful two year old was brought into the room. A few minutes later, her adoptive parents were ushered in and the sweet little girl burst into tears. Her tears escalated into hysteria and she could not be comforted. The trio eventually left the room, guided by those who were trying to facilitate the adoption.

The following day, another adoptive parent gave me the shocking news that the 'adoptive couple' had decided not to adopt and the terrified little girl was now on her way back to the orphanage. I had asked you all to pray for her and wow...was God up to something BIG!

She has a family...although they are not yet united. They need a bit of help to complete their adoption. Would you want to be a part of what God is doing in this little girl's life? Please go to her Mommy's blog and read their story.

OK, if ever there is a "Yippee Jesus" story (to borrow from Linny), this is one of them. I am ecstatic over the moon about this. I can't wait for Paul to get paid next week so we can help out. Gee, I wish I could be there again to see a different ending this time.

Hugs to you for posting this!

I have been following her blog for awhile now. I never knew about the civil affairs story. That is so cool to see how God has been working. I can't wait until they bring her home!

I can't get any of the links to work...about Ava, about the family or donate.
How amazing for you to get to witness her finally finding the right family!

Hi Karin,
So funny. I have been following Ava's adoption too. Wonderful story! But i knew nothing of the interupted adoption. God sure works in mysterious ways!

I am so excited that she has a family that loves her already. And how awesome that you where there in the beginning!

Karin said...

Holly--the links are kinda funky on my computer, too. If you run your mouse below the links, the little hand should pop up so that you can click on them. Can you get to her blog?

I love this story! God can do anything.

Wow! I've been following their story too ( we have a little friend w/ nevii similar to Ava's) I knew there was a disruption, but I didn't know your connection.
Finally she will have her family, they have been praying for her for a long time
