An empty chair is waiting

No, it's not the president. I'm not going to be talking about that empty chair. The chair that is empty is for a little girl with Downs syndrome who is all the way across the ocean in an orphanage, or "baby house."

Our friends, or my in town kids, or adopted kids, or whatever we call them, usually Rowdy's family, has been trying for over a year to adopt a sweet little girl. So many obstacles have been put in their way. Frustrations, anger, tears, but they haven't given up. They feel they are being called to be parents to this child.

They visited back in February, and fell even more deeply in love with her. The photos they had seen were pale in comparison to this spunky little chunky girl they want to call daughter.

Obstacles, bureaucracy, politics, so many things have kept them from their girl. Finally, a court date in early October. We are all nervously excited. Hoping and praying that the barriers will come down and they will be given permission to adopt this child.









If you are the praying type of person, please, take just a moment or two and pray for this family to be complete. Pray for smooth proceedings in court, safe travels and that a little girl far far away will have a forever home.

You did a FABULOUS job on these!!!!! Such a difficult situation though. I could never understand why it has to be so difficult or so much red tape to adopt. I know people that wait many many years. So sad with all the children that need homes.
