My Dad's Girl

I just had to post these pictures....

Zara (Lily).

The little one my dad picked for his Christmas Angel.

The little one he has been praying for every single day since.

Her Mama and Papa met her this weekend.

Isn't she precious?

She actually isn't in the orphanage right now.  She's in the hospital.  She has the chicken pox!!

Thankfully they can still visit her there.  Her blog is HERE if you want to follow along....

And Guess who is officially home????

Our Christmas Angel.

....And look who is OUT of the orphanage....

Moira and her sister Nastya

(please keep praying them home as they are still across the ocean and their Mama is bringing them home alone!!)....

And finally....

I have been waiting ALL DAY to hear from Jonah's family.

They were supposed to see him today BUT found out over the weekend that he has had surgery on his hand/s and is in the hospital.

At this point I have no news to share.

My heart hurts to think of him going through surgery alone in the hospital.

Please pray for Jonah - for his family.

I will share more information when I am able.


  1. Thanks for keeping us posted.

  2. The faces of these little angels just make me ache. I cannot tell you how much I admire you for standing in the gap for these little ones!

  3. Is there any update on Masha and her family? Still praying for Jonah.

  4. So much good news, and so many reasons to pray <3

  5. Thanks for sharing. What wonderful news for all - I too am anxiously waiting to see pictures of Jonah in the loving arms of his family!!! Still praying!

  6. Hi Julia,

    Isn't this just the greatest news seeing these little ones come out of an orphanage and into families that love and care for them?

    Yay God! You rock!

  7. I am so uplifted by your blog and not only the news of your family, but the updates on so many other is hard to work, parent, be married and read every single blog of all these families, but I am rooting for them all!

    Have a wonderful day!


Loving words from kind people make our hearts glad!
