What have you got to lose?

We have been blessed to receive new pictures of our little guy & there is one that is rocking my heart!

Remember little Zhu...Solomon's best friend??? HE STILL NEEDS HIS FOREVER FAMILY! My heart is just wrecked for this little one. Just look at them...they remind me of our girls...so giggly, so attached...they are even wearing matching shirts in the new pictures I got!!!!

I just keep thinking about the day we get to meet this sweet one...getting to love on him, and then turning around, walking out, & leaving him behind without his best friend. I imagine if it was our girls... separating them would be devastating! Ohhh, I can't bear it...my heart is breaking!!!

Please...I am begging you...spread the word about Zhu...PRAY, PRAY, PRAY that his family will be found!!!

So what are you waiting for
What do you have to lose
Your insecurities
They try to hold to you
But you know you're made for more
So don't be afraid to move
Your faith is all it takes
And you can walk on the water too

So get out and let your fear fall to the ground
No time to waste, don't wait
And don't you turn around, and miss out on
Everything you were made for
Gotta be, I know you're not sure, more
So you play it safe, you try to run away
If you take that first step
Into the unknown
He won't let you go

Okay so I'm leveled in a heap of tears. Joining with you in prayer to find Zhu a family. I'll post on my blog tomorrow as well.

This is such a sweet post and my heart gets tugged every time I hear about a child that needs a home....

my husband and I desperately want to adopt anpother child but I think the state of PA has limits on the number...

I would so love to adopt Zhu and let he and Solomon keep contact, but God has called us to adopt a girl this time. I will absolutely pray, not only that Zhu will find his family, but that God will bring you together with them so they can be friends. He can do all things!

Just keep doing what you're doing, just keep praying and advocating...Zhu's family will find him. And don't be surprised if there is a God sized miracle that happens because of your love for this little guy and your faithfulness in praying for him.

In the meantime, you gonna post those updated "matching shirt" pictures, or what? : )

Oh my, I wish we could bring him home. I have to remind myself that we know the direction God has for us. Will be praying he finds his forever family.

Gosh, God has totally lead us to Ethiopia. BUT....I do have a friend that adopted a girl from China and is considering China or ET for a second adoption! I will definitely pass on the word about Zhu! How old is he?
