I just received a phone call from a fellow adoptive mom, Susan, who is also a doctor. She had a prayer request. Today, the State Department is meeting with a group of adoption agencies that handle adoptions from Haiti. They are pleading with our State Department to issue Emergency Refugee Visas for the children who have families paper ready to bring their children home.
Susan and her husband are in the process of bringing two children home from Haiti. Susan talked to one orphanage director and heard that the day of the earthquake the nannies heard the rumbling and carried all the children outside the building to the street. There was a second rumble and with that second rumble the orphanage walls collapsed. The children were spared because of the nannies quick action prompted, obviously, by Almighty God!
There is no doubt that God's heart is for the orphan. Could you please stop and pray for this horrific situation? Could you ask God to move mountains with the United States State Department and allow them to show mercy to these little ones waiting for their families? Please pray for wisdom as many try to go to meet the needs of the Haitian people. Who can know the magnitude of the suffering and devastation? We must pray! And some must go! Please join Dw & I in praying....
