Tonya's Family

You remember this sweet face?

I don't know why I haven't blogged asking you guys for prayer, but I haven't had the thought cross my mind until today.  And then I was like HELLO!  Why haven't you done that!

So, Tonya's family is in country right now and has hit some bumps in the road.  They are having a different experience than ours by quite a bit and I would appreciate if you all could take a moment right now and pray for them.  They didn't have an apartment to rent when they got there and had to get a hotel.  They have had a paperwork issue with the family of origin that is turning out to be very difficult and things are taking longer than expected.  Please pray that the issues are resolved for them and for the remainder of the process.  They have met their little girl and things have gone well with that, so we praise God for His blessing on their connection.  She wouldn't hold still enough for pictures last I heard =).  She ran into her Mama's arms when they met.  That is a blessed moment for a Mommy to have.

Guys, it's a rough thing to be away from family for so long and to be in such a different place doing something that is all legal and in your name when you have no clue what is going on half the time.  While there are wonderful moments in country, it. is. hard.  It's very emotional.  You hit moments when you just long to be home and have your babies in your arms.  ALL of your babies.  Prayers for that are needed too I am sure.  She hasn't told me such, but I know it to be true.  I know because I remember it.  They are living out a lot of faith.  Visibly it is faith in people that they do not even know.  But in truth we know that their faith must be in the LORD.  He is the one in control and He will make everything what He intends it to be.

Let us battle together on our knees for Tonya's family.  Thank you for your prompt prayers friends.  I will update on any further information that I can.

Praying here too, for provision, protection and a speedy process from this point. Lord bless Tonya and her new forever family, and make the rest of the process smooth. Let them feel your arms around them, and give them faith to trust in your plan--that it is good, and that you love them. Amen.
