Prayers for Emmie- Day 1

Though this is Day 1 of Prayers for Emmie, I feel as though my thoughts and prayers should first be dedicated to all those who have suffered so greatly in Oklahoma. The devastation there is unimaginable, and I grieve for the great loss of life. Life is so precious. May God's peace and comfort be with all those in this time of loss.

Day 1: Please pray that Emmie can remain at her current orphanage, the House of Love, for as long as possible before we come to take her home. It is routine for children who are not living in a government ran orphanage to be returned to their original orphanage before their forever family comes to bring them home. Emmie has been at the House of Love for almost two years, meaning that she will likely not know or remember anyone at her original orphanage. We fear this may be very difficult for Emmie to return to such a foreign place, and also will make her transition to her new family even more difficult. Please pray for peace and comfort for her whenever the time does come that she must return to the government orphange.

"May your unfailing love be my comfort, according to your promise to your servant". Psalm 119:76

Just wanted to let you know that I am saying a prayer along with your family each day while you wait!

The waiting is soooo hard, but I know God has a plan!
