A Call for Prayer

OK. So things have slowed down A LOT here in the adoption world lately. And those of us who are stuck in the middle of it are just plain frustrated. I think maybe Adam and I got spoiled by our first few months of the waiting list, moving 7 and then 8 spots. We only moved one last month and at the halfway point in March I do not believe there have been any referrals yet. Needless to say, we are feeling rather weary in the wait.

So we have a favor to ask of you.

We know that so many of you pray for us and for our little one(s) on a regular basis, and we are so grateful for that. Seriously. We cannot tell you how much it helps us to know that there are people out there standing in the proverbial gap for us, praying for us when we just run out of steam.

So I want to ask you to pray specifically for movement on the waiting list. I am praying that we move 10 spots this month. I know that is a lot. I know it seems impossible, but I also know that God can absolutely do it.

With all that being said, would you please pray for serious movement on the waiting list for us? We are (OK maybe more I than we) are feeling a bit desperate. We want so much to have our little one(s) home before the end of the year, and with each day that passes with no movement, that dream seems farther and farther away.

So we are reaching out to you, our faith family. And we are asking you to join us in this, as we pray and wait to see what God does.

"Ask and it will be given to you. Seek and you will find. Knock and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, everyone who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened."
Matthew 7:7-8



  1. Praying for y'all (and the bebe(s))!

  2. Praying everyday; His timing is perfect. How I wish I didn't think I knew better than Him!

  3. Hi Baylor,
