please pray

i have days to catch you up on.

but, right now, we need prayer.

bailey is throwing up. she's the happiest sick person. but, still, it's sad.
pray she gets better quickly and no one else gets it.

my camera won't work. we don't know why. working on a couple things. just pray it works.

we think we get the boys full time today - which is exciting! but, if i'm honest, a little overwhelming also. just pray.

thank you!

we are good. just slightly overwhelmed. and no time to process the MANY things that happen each day, which is NOT good for me.

praise - pat and i are sleeping MUCH better...continued prayer for that as we have 2 more kids tonight!

I keep praying for you guys! I hope you'll have wonderful day today!

Still praying for you guys. Especially that the boys transition well and that they exhaustion isn't overwhelming for all of you. Praying also for Bailey. It could just be the water and food and not necessarily be a virus...which would be good in a way since it wouldn't be contagious. Praying she's better soon!

We are praying AND praising God for all of the above. We are so sad Bailey is sick...I can see "happy sick Bailey". She is amazing! Praying for health, endurance, wisdom, laughter(!), camera to work (oh yes!) and bonding with you all and the boys. Oh how we rejoice in these days. Amazing....days!!!!! Can you feel our hug? It's TIGHT!

Father God please put your loving, healing arms around this family we all care for, help them feel our prayers for them even though they are far away from home - they are never far from you.

Heal Bailey and protect everyone else from getting sick, repair the camera and most of all Lord God watch over the process of them all becoming a FAMILY!

We praise you Lord that you have been with them and in the process, smoothing their way so far and continue Lord to be right with them step by step.

Amen!

Praying you sense the overwhelming peace of your Heavenly Father as you spend your first full day with your new boys!!!! Will lift up Bailey and all of you and your health!!!

praying right now for health for all of you, for a smooth transition as the boys come to live with you, for sleep for all of you, for all electronic equipment to work right, and for an overwhelming sense of peace and strength as you begin this new chapter. we are still watching that video many times a day! :) praying that you can FEEL Him holding you in the palm of His hand!

Praying for each of these details Courtney. Since I'm completely consumed with thinking about what you are up to these days, it won't be hard to pray for you all throughout the day!!! Praying that it's not a virus but rather just Bailey's body adjusting. Praying that she adjusts quickly and is restored to full strength. Praying your letter comes today and you don't have to give them back again. Praying your camera works again QUICKLY - we need to see those pictures - and praying for rest and peace in the midst of lots of sure activity and chaos. Praying for peaceful happy hearts for all of you AND the boys. Love you!
