God's Plan For Us

This is our journey - God's incredible plan for our lives. When we followed the moving of the Holy Spirit, He opened the windows of Heaven and poured out upon us blessings we never dreamed of! Indescribable joy!

" For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

In regards to 'Hope'

I failed to mention in my previous post, but Hope is on the shared list which means any agency can submit paperwork to adopt her. I do have other information if anyone is interested in making Hope their daughter. If you'll leave a message and email address (it will not be posted and will remain private) I'd be glad to share what I know.

Could you be Hope's family?

There is a little 8 year old girl who has captured my heart. She needs a family who will take a chance on the unknown. She is blind (congenital glaucoma), though she may be able to discern light. I first saw this girl a couple of years or so ago. I remember her pose and her outfit. She looked adorable. Recently, I was looking at an advocacy site and saw the same picture again. Beside it was the photo below. I was shocked to realize that it was the same girl. Her hair had been cut off, and her update seemed as though she's not been given an opportunity to thrive. The video broke my heart. They were asking her to walk around without a cane or anything to guide her. When I showed the video to Xiaoyun she said that it seemed as if the girl had lost hope. Since then I have called her 'Hope' and pray that she will find a family who will give her every chance to succeed. Could you be the family she is waiting for?
