Prayer Request :

I wish I were posting this to tell you that we got our email that we have been waiting for. I am posting asking that everyone PRAY! We have only a few weeks until the dreaded September 1st is here and we are anxiously waiting for that email to come. For all of you who are reading who have a child of your own...please hug them and tell them you love them for me. I would do anything at this moment to be able to hug Ema. My heart is literally tired of loving her so much and not being able to get that feeling you get when a child loves you back. The emotional roller coaster that Kirk and I are riding on is horrible. Some days we are so positive about this and feel that it is going to be any day that we hear something and some days we are at rock bottom and feel that we are doing something wrong and this wait has to be our punishment or something. I thought that running everyday would help a little, and don't get me wrong, it is but I still cannot function some days without thinking of her every moment. Today has been one of those days. Please pray with us and ask that the email will come and that we will be united with Ema soon. Pray that God is preparing her for us and that we will be able to bring her home soon.

God bless you Emily. I am honored to join in you in prayer for this. Mom and I were just discussing you, Kirk and Ema today. We promise to pray.

I've had you guys on my mind a lot the last couple of days and wanted to let you and Emily know that I am praying for your family to be united as soon as The Man upstairs is ready. I ran across this scripture and thought of the two of you.


You turned my wailing into dancing: O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever. -Psalm 30:11-12

You will be dancing before long, I just know it.

Our prayers are with you,
