Court Countdown - TUESDAY - Orphanage

Today, we lift up the Ethiopian orphanage that originally took in our boys several months ago. While I have been cautioned against sharing specifics relating to our case before we have actually passed court, I can tell you that our children came through a well-established Ethiopian orphanage that has cared for hundreds of orphaned children. The orphanage staff is responsible for the original paperwork necessary for an adoption referral and eventual adoption court proceedings. Please pray that these papers would be in order for our court appearance.

The Ethiopian orphanages are also often the means through which additional information about birth families or relinquishment situations can be gained. As they continue to be on the front lines of orphan care, please pray for their continuing ministry to precious children and their work to connect these children with forever families. Pray that their limited resources would be multiplied and that special needs would be met as they arise.

Pure and lasting religion in the sight of God our Father means that we must care for orphans and widows in their troubles, and refuse to let the world corrupt us.
James 1:27 (NLT)
