Keeping a Secret is Hard!!

I AM SO GLAD I DON'T HAVE TO KEEP THIS SECRET ANY LONGER...

GUESS WHO IS GETTING A MOMMY AND A DADDY??


Guess who never has to set ONE foot in the village of no return?

Guess who?????

Oh Sweet Jonah.... You have a family!!

I have been chomping at the bit to share. 

It has been so hard.

So many have come so close but FINALLY - FINALLY!!

Thank you Dear Lord!

You know the sweetest part.... when Jonah's new Daddy saw his picture and heard his story....

His words...

"I can't think of a single reason why we shouldn't go get him!!"

 I can't either.

I can't either.

Thank you for praying.  Thank you for advocating.  Thank you.

  5. Yay!!!! I'm sitting here with tears running down my face... what an amazing answer to prayer! I can't wait to "meet" his family and find out about the people I have been praying for these last several months. WONDERFUL news! I can't wait to tell the kids when they wake up in the morning. My Brynn (who had the b'day party for Jonah) will be ecstatic!

  6. Yes!!!! I'm so excited and thankful and.. relieved. The thought that Jonah could have taken Brady's spot in the institution terrified me, I find myself even more happy about Brady finding his family (didn't know that was possible) now that I know Jonah's family has found him too.

  12. I cannot even begin to tell you how happy this makes me! When I first saw Jonah's picture I called my husband over and said "I WANT this little boy". I knew it wasn't possible, we just found out we are expecting our 7th baby and the addition would put us way under the income and space requirements. So I donated to him every time I had the least bit extra and I've prayed every day that his family would find him. God is good!

  13. Ahhhhhhh!!! I just did my daily check of the "My Family Found Me Page" and could hardly believe it when I saw Jonah!!!! I raced right over here because I knew you'd have posted. Thank you, God! I am so excited for that sweet boy and his family. Now I'll just have to keep praying somebody finds Delilah too.
