Prayers for Emmie- Day 15
First, a new picture of Emmie! We have been told that she really enjoys puzzles, and this seems to prove that! We are also thrilled that Emmie remains at the House of Love, and has not yet been moved back to her original orphanage. This is a huge answer to prayer. Even if she was moved tomorrow, she would only have to stay there for about a week, as a week from this Monday, on June 17, we will have Emmie forever!
We ask you to pray today for our "Gotcha Day". Generally, for children that are of toddler age, it can be very confusing and fearful. An Orphans Wish has no doubt done a wonderful job preparing Emmie for her transition, but we know it still be difficult for the first few days. Please pray for patience and understanding for all of us, and for wisdom for Zack and I as we deal with Emmie's emotions and reactions on this day especially.
God is love. 1 John 4:8
