Puzzle Prayers for Solomon

As you are all aware, were 5-6 weeks away from travel and still need $6,950 before we can travel. CRAZY...I can't believe we are getting so close!!!

This idea came to me at the beginning of our journey and I think now is a beautiful time to start this. Thank you to my precious friend, Erica, for encouraging me to do this!!

While we waited for baby C we made a 100 Good Wishes/Scripture quilt. A beautiful reminder of everyone who loved her before she was even home. She LOVES to talk about who gave what square. It's become a very beautiful part of her story!!!

I have been thinking about this puzzle idea and how this can become an amazing part of Solomon's story. A puzzle that is put together by his family but held together with the names of everyone one that has been praying for him, loving him, & supporting his homecoming! It actually leaves me breathless to think about it...can you imagine having a 513 piece puzzle with names on the back of each piece representing all of you!! SOOO AWESOME!!
Wanna be part of
513 Prayers for our Solomon!!
Want him to know how loved he was while we were waiting for him for him to come home?

I have ordered this picture as a PUZZLE!
There are 513 pieces!!
For each piece you sponsor, YOUR NAME will be written on the back of the piece. Your prayer/scripture to Solomon will be put in a scrapbook along with a picture of the back of the puzzle so he can find what piece you sponsored.
How to sponsor a puzzle piece?
Each sponsored piece costs $ can use the chip in to donate and leave your scripture/prayer in my comments section, email it to me, or the comment section when you pay with paypal.

We will take pictures of the back of the puzzle and include them on his journal pages. Once the puzzle is completed it will be framed...hopefully we can find a double-sided glass frame!

Piece by piece our precious son
Prayer by prayer our baby boy
You will be home FOREVER so soon!

Stacy, first of all, I am so thrilled for you guys! I have been reading your blog since around March, which is when we found our sweet son, so checking your blog almost everyday has been special to me in a lot of ways. To think you guys are almost there! I am so excited for your family and thankful to the Lord for the amazing things He has done for you along the way.

Second, I think your puzzle idea is absolutely wonderful! It is a terrific way to help others be involved in such a tangible way. And then to have such a precious keepsake for Solomon. (Such a good idea, I may have to consider it for ourselves down the road! :0)

Finally, please add these to the back of our pieces:

"Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit" (Romans 15:13).

"Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path" (Psalm 119:105).

From the Silburns who can't wait to see Solomon united forever in his family, and who even now is cared for by a God who loves and adores him. We pray the truth the Lord gave us for your friend, YuXiao, who lives with you in Jinjiang, This is a blessing from the Lord that Moses gave to the tribe of Benjamin, and we pray it for you and over you, dear Solomon. God's shoulders are safe and wide. He is your shield, your portion and the One who loves you with a forever and always love!

"May the beloved of the Lord rest securely in Him,
who shields you all day long.
And the one the Lord loves dwells between His shoulders" - Deuteronomy 33:12

Stacy, please add this quote, as it is one of my faves to the scrapbook,

Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take,
but by the moments that take your breath away.

Love to you, Trisha
