     This morning in my e-mail I received a letter from one of my blog 'lurkers", the Patterson family.  They had been praying for Aaron BEFORE we knew about him and were thrilled when they found out we had committed to adopting him.  She took the time to share this with me.

      It is so refreshing in my spirit to be reminded that the prayers of the righteous were lifted up for Aaron long before we knew him.  What a mighty God we serve.  What a neat reminder that I can rest in the knowledge that my God has cared for our little guy long before we knew he even existed.  It is so easy to get discouraged in the here and now.  This morning's e-mail reminded me that I serve a God who is orchestrating this adoption.  He moved in hearts long before we had any thought or idea that we were going to adopt.  What a great way to start my day!

So here's my challenge... If you were praying for Aaron before we knew about him (December 29th) - please tell us/remind us who you are.... I want a list to show  Aaron one day!  I want him to know that God has had His loving hand on His life.  I want him to know just how special and precious he is.  I'm going to give it a few weeks and then will post the list on our blog for everyone to see!!

Molly... don't worry - you are going to be at the TOP of the list!!


  1. I actually laughed out loud! I'm sitting here at 8 am giggling. Yeah, put me on the list! :-)

  2. Put me on the list too. I am so glad he is going to have a home!!!

  3. I was praying too! I'm 22 w/ Arthrogryposis in all four limbs like Aaron.

  4. Prayers for Aaron are sent up from the Black Hills of SD.
    He is much loved by many who don't even know his name, but have sent help to his orphanage & been brightened by his smile from photos.
    Pascal, an orphan's advocate, from Les Amis de Svieta (LAdS) http://www.svieta.org/ took a picture of Aaron at the baby house (before the transfer), & I put it into the newsletter for An Orphan's Bright Star http://www.orphansbrightstar.org/about_us.htm
    Aaron has a special light about him & I will be so glad to hear when he is safely home! Gina


Loving words from kind people make our hearts glad!
