A Fasting Prayer

A Boatload of Dreams is hosting a Fasting Prayer for Orphans today. (sorry, I'm just now finding out about it!) If you've been following along with Aaron's family, you know tomorrow is a HUGE day for him. This little boy, who has never been out of the Ukrainian institution where he has spent his entire life, is being forced to go to court, before a judge, who will decide if he can be adopted. It is craziness. This will happen at 3:00 a.m. our time. THEY NEED OUR PRAYERS!!!

As for us, our profile was presented to the Ministry Officials in Ianna's country last night. I cannot give you all of our personal details here, but just know if they approve our family profile it will be monumental. Not only for Ianna, but for other families who want to adopt from this country. And, if they approve our profile, Ianna's casemanager will be contacted, and it will be explained why it is not a waste of his or her precious time to register this child for international adoption just because she has craniofacial differences.

Oh, how I long for the day when I can share pictures and videos for you. I have many just burning holes in my hard drive waiting to be posted here!

Please join my in a fasting prayer for Aaron and Ianna as we wait to hear the news on each of the children. We should hear about both of them within a few hours of each other!

  1. Aaron and Ianna is in my prayers, but as it's already Rosh Hashanah, as a Jew I'm forbidden to fast today. I do pray all will be going well, and Aaron going to court most likely serves a greater purpose than we can see at this point. I pray he and his family in heart will have a blessed day tomorrow, and that you'll get good news from our former Southern Neighbor country about Ianna.

  9. Just prayed for Ianna, that the hearts of those involved in making a decision for her future, may be softened with mercy by the holy Spirit and see her plight and grant approval for her to be with her forever family (you and your family).

    thank you for sharing this prayer request, and for sharing about Aaron, I have just been to their website and prayed for them as well.
