Katherine's Prayer

The children aren't sure. They are counting the cost. What will it mean to add another child to our family? They know that adoption will cost a lot of money. What will they have to give up?  Nathan said, "I know adoption costs a lot of money, and if we do it, I'm afraid you won't be able to afford to send me to my school anymore."

They worry about how they will communicate with a child who doesn't speak English yet. Last night I prayed for Wenxin as I was putting Katherine and Julia to bed. When I finished, Katherine announced that she wanted to pray.

"Dear God, please help Wenxin find a family in China so that they will be able to understand what he is saying. Help them to love him and never give him away like his first family did. Amen."

A Glimmer of Hope

Yesterday, I found a message in my inbox. China wants more info on Mike's health. They did not immediately turn us down.
