Ok, this is MAJOR folks! This is a HUGE step, and it needs MASSIVE PRAYERS!!! THIS is why my stomach was in knots the other night, only I didn't know why until now!

Today I got an email from the other side of the world.

Later this week, our family profile will be submitted to the officials of Ianna's country. This is the profile I labored over, to get every word just right. It is the one I sent back in July to have translated into their language. It is this profile that describes our family, tells our story, and why, Angela and I, would be a family worthy of adopting a child from their country, between the ages of 9 and 11 years old, who just happens to have Apert syndrome.

Our family is a complicated one; difficult to explain to someone who doesn't speak your language and lives by different laws.  Did I say the right things? Did I say enough? Too much? Will they find us worthy? Please Lord, YOU told us we are worthy, let them see that too.


  1. praying Leah!!!! HE has it all under control!

  2. Praying for them to see you as I see you, a beautiful person with a huge heart! : )

  3. DEFINITELY praying! I get those uneasy feelings in advance of things I don't know yet too... Not sure if I hate it or am glad to sort of be prepared lol!

    BUT... Definitely praying now!

  4. Many prayers they see what an amazing family you all are. You are great with words Leah...I'm sure you explained yourself perfectly. Praying!!!!

  5. Prayers being said to lift up your family. I look forward to hearing more good news soon!!!
