Praise the LORD! I received this blessed surprise from another mom. Her child was in the same foster home with Ellie until last fall. This picture was taken in August of 2006.
I was thinking today about my request of the Father to bring Ellie home soon. While it seems minor or selfish to pray that we can go get Ellie early this summer, I thought about the first miracle of Jesus' earthly ministry. When he turned the water into wine, he was caring for the concerns of a Jewish family. This same Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. I know he cares for the concerns of our family for Ellie. Please join us in praying that she will come home early this summer, so we can have the whole summer to bond before I go back to work. Then, I can save my sick leave for her surgery, and I can spend more time with her then.
