You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart.
You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.
You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.
You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

Deuteronomy 6:5-9

Jean Baptiste
Dear Lord,
I thank you for the gift of these two precious children. Thank you for chosing us to be a part of their lives-for trusting us with the responsibility of raising these boys into Godly men. Thank you for their gifts and the blessings you have already provided to them. Thank you-we are awed and honored by your plan and the part you have for us to play in it. We lift up these boys to you-and ask that you bless them, protect them and let them know just how much you love them.
We thank you for their first family, the orphanage, and all the people who have loved on these children of yours. We thank you for all you have done, are doing and will do. We trust your plan, your timing and your provision. We thank you for the many blessings you have provided to us. Please help these two boys to know how much we love them and how badly we want them at home, and that we will do whatever it takes to make that happen. We trust you to work it out-you know what we need before we do and we are so thankful.
We thank you for each person reading this-friends, family, new friends we haven't met yet.....and for each person we ask for your blessing. We're grateful for the support we have received and the friends we have made on this Adoption Adventure.
In the precious name of Jesus.


  1. Amen, they are just beautiful. Thanks for posting my fundraising site Lena.
    Maybe we should make one for you or do some type of a raffle?


Thanks for interacting with me thru my blog. I love hearing from you.
