Happy Birthday Addie


Meet Addie, a beautiful smiley girl who turned 11 years old today and is waiting for her forever family in India! Wouldn't it be wonderful if her family found her on this special day? :)
Her description says,

"She was born with a minor congenital heart defect that has already been repaired. She engages well with grown-ups and peers, and is currently in the 4th grade."
 
Unfortunately, I do not have any pictures of Addie to share, due to India's laws, but I'm sure the family who pursues her adoption will be able to obtain some.
 
She is listed with America World Adoption.
 
The National Flag of India, Addie's home country.

Will you pray with me today that God will provide this lovely girl the loving home she longs for and deserves?
Please note that this is a shared referral. For more information on “Addie",  please email india@awaa.org
 
Also, I found this video yesterday...please watch it. It brought tears to my eyes! The writer of this song and his wife adopted a little girl, and I believer her siblings, from the Ukraine. And when she grew up, she and her husband adopted a little boy. Such an amazing story!

Updates: Poppy, Ben, and Brayden

I have some updates for three of the children I've shared with you in the past. Here they are!
 
Poppy
 
Poppy was one of the first children posted on here, before I had officially shared this blog with all of you. I am pleased to announce that she has a family working to get to her! I can't wait to see pictures of her with them.
For updates on her adoption, visit her mom's blog at somehowtherespeace.blogspot.com
 
If you would like to donate money to help with the adoption costs for bringing her home, take a look at the "Support Adopting Families" page on this blog.
 
Brayden
 
When I shared Brayden with you all in early April, he really needed a family to step forward for him because of his complex medical needs. I am so very happy to share that HE HAS A FAMILY! Such wonderful news! I don't have any more information than that, because his profile has simply been updated to matched. But please keep him in your prayers. Pray that his family can get through the paperwork as fast as possible and get travel approval to get him. Also, please pray for his health while he waits in China. Thank you!
 
Ben
 
 
I posted about this almost 14 year old boy in hopes that a family would come forward for him, but that hasn't happened and he aged out this month {meaning he can longer be adopted}. Please pray that God will reveal a purpose for him in China and that people will come along side him to mentor and help him.
 
I will continue to post updates as I get them! And if you have any extra info on any of the children listed on the "Waiting For My Family" page, please do share! Thank you. :)
