My Kids....Please Pray ~ part 2

I have to share a sweet story. As I was reading about the update on these kiddos (BELOW), my 2 older ones were in the room and they saw my tears and asked what was wrong. I told them and then I said, "Hey, you guys want a 6yr. old brother?" (you see, this little guy so deeply touched my heart when I first learned about him and to see he still needed his family just tore my heart...of course the 10yr. is an absolute doll but I know we could never adopt older than T). Anyways, both of them yelled, "YES!!!" And this is how the rest of the conversation went:

T: I get to go to China this time!
Tr: HEEEYYY, I get to go, too!!!
T: Nope, just me,
Tr: That's not fair, I'm going!
Mom: Wait a minute....(they would not let me get a word)
T: Wait, I bet he only speaks Chinese
Tr: Ooohh, we better hurry up and learn Chinese
Mom: Whoa...no one is going to China!!!
T: That's not fair that only you and daddy get to go
Mom: NO ONE is going to China....we need to pray for these children and ask the Lord to bring their families. but we are not going to China.

They both looked at me so disappointed. My heart was soooooo blessed that they didn't even hesitate about bringing this little one home....they were already on the plane to go get him!!! I LOVE IT!!!!

Just had to share!! PLEASE READ THE BELOW POST AND PRAY FOR THESE CHILDREN & PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT THEM!!!!

Oh my sweet friend....are you sure you don't need another boy? Sounds like the kids think so! :)

My heart is broken for these children. I know we serve a mighty mighty God and he knows just who is perfect to parent these children.

I got your email - I'll write more tonight.
