Praying about Anya

At church today I prayed alot about little Anya. I really have a special place in my heart for her, but I don't know if that means God wants me to bring her home, or try to have other people adopt her.

Tony has been looking at her profile with me and we have been looking up what she has. Right now she really cant move her arms and legs at all. They said with therapy though she should be able to do so later on. We are having our paper worked switched to add her just in case God tells us to bring her home. How hard that would be to say no though once you have her in your hands and holding her there in front of you!!!

I guess we were under the impression that when we got to there we could see all the babies and love on them. Our kids are getting very excited about the children coming home. They keep asking when will they be here. They don't seem to understand what we are waiting for. We tell them we are waiting for mail to come and tell us, so everyday they run to the mail and bring it home. " Is this it, Is it time!!!," Its been a month now that we last sent off our INS paper work, so it should be very soon.

Thanks you so much for the people who commented on my last blog. I think I was getting overwhelmed with people asking to many questions about adopting to many kids and telling me we should not be doing this. I know in my heart what God is telling me to do, so that's all I need to worry about. I have known since I was a little girl that God wanted me to have alot of children, and my husband has always said he wanted 12. I don't think anyone thought he was telling the truth, like his mother and family, but they are all in support of our decisions to do this. We are excited about the way our lives are about to change and the closer it gets the more real it all becomes. We are sooo ready and the room just waits here for our girls, we just need them to come home!! Pray that our paper work comes soon and that we get everything mailed off soon so that we can get our travel date!!!

The picture is our youngest Emma,She has been asking everyday for her babies to come see her!


  1. We are praying that God would make it clear whether Anya is your daughter or not. You are an amazing family and I am so proud to be friends with you guys!! Your children are beautiful and it is obvious that you are so blessed by God with your big crew of kids! DJ and I always talk about how beautiful your family is and how representative you are of His love. No judging here!!! ;)
