GOD KNEW~

just took us a bit to catch on :)



INTRODUCING

TAYA !!!!!
(My dream baby :)

 She will be our newest   daughter !

I am freaking out ! She has wrapped her little hands around my heart since late last year. I have felt a huge connection to her. While I was trying to find her a home, GOD was working on my hubby and making it clear WHERE her real home WAS. WITH US !!!!!!!!!! I swear I screamed when my hubby said lets go get her !
There is a story and background I will share with ya'll in another post, but for now share my joy for this amazing beautiful child of GOD who will very soon know the love of her mama!!!!
GO HERE , to see our family sponsor page :) if you felt inclined to donate to help us bring her home, it is tax-deductible and we would be so very humbled...

All orphans are my passion.I will continue to advocate for these kids. So far I have touched the adoption of 4 kiddos!!! Timothy, Taya :) and 2 other little ones who's mama will come forward soon. God is so awesome and amazing to use me this way. I am honored.
 I chuckle thinking about how the LORD works these things out :) all for his glory!!!


Btw~ time is not on our side here. Taya turned 4 at the beginning of the year. She is on borrowed time , before she could be sent to the institution (internet) for the mentally INSANE. Not just children are housed in this awful , dark place but teens and adults. WITH BABIES. oH. MY.WORD.  We have to get our paperwork and funds in order asap!
Pray for us :) :)

Please go to reeces rainbow site and check out all the kiddos who truly NEED YOU !

Congratulations Maria!! After your previous post I guessed you may be adopting again. It's midnight here in St. Louis but I had to do a final check to see if you had posted your news. How awesome that God opened your husbands heart to Taya. I can't wait to follow your journey!

I could not be any more excited for you!! I had tears streaming down my face this morning after reading your post!

Taya will be the most loved little girl just as it should be. I will try my best to learn what I can in the orphanage while I am there!

Blessings

So excited for you, Maria! What a blessing for her & for you! May God open the doors to speed your process along & save this precious one from a life of despair. Isn't it amazing how God works things out even when we aren't aware or expecting it? I can't wait to read the story of how it all came to be :-)

missy said...

what incredible news! i remember you advocating for her. how sweet that your family is the answer to your prayers for her.

cindy said...

Is the only way to donate to your adoption through the website? At one time you had a click and pay for another little boy I believe, would you consider something for your own adoption?

Jodi said...

So happy for you!

I can't wait for you to get over there and scoop her up!

She is such a happy little doll.

So, I've been reading some of your comments on RR today and wondering who has "caught your eye". I'm thinking I know who but don't want to be presumptious. Either way, I will do my darndest to see Taya and love on her if possible. My kids know Taya very well since I talked about her for quite awhile, so they'll enjoy meeting her if we're allowed to.
