prayer request

Dear blog readers,

I don't ask many favors for you, but I'm asking one tonight. I'm asking for prayers for an online friend and her family. Today they learned that the infant they hoped to adopt passed away unexpectedly. God answered their prayers to heal the child by bringing the baby home to him, but obviously this is not what they expected and they are devastated. Please pray for this adopting family as well as the birth family as their hearts need healing, and they'll need guidance as they search for direction of how to go on from here. The family reads this blog. If you'd like to leave them a message... you can do so in the comments of this post.

I’m just been sobbing tonight for this little one and the two families, birth family and another family that loved the baby so very much... even though they never had the opportunity to physically hold their child of their hearts.

Thank you.

Updated Sunday, January 13th:

Rebecca and I have chosen to send $100 of our Blogovers with Love donations to help cover the cost of a funeral for an infant that unexpectedly passed away at an orphanage in Taiwan. The birth family does not have the funds to pay for a proper funeral. Please e-mail me if you would like to have an address where you can send funds to help with the funeral expenses.


  1. I am so sorry to read about this...thought, prayers and hugs to this family!

  2. Oh, my heart just breaks for this family. I would like for them to know that they are in my prayers tonight. I will pray for God's healing in their hearts, for peace and comfort!

    Blessings to this sweet family,
