He and She Are HOME!…

That’s right! Heath and Heather are both home with their families!

Such sweet words! "Already Home" <3
Such sweet words! “Already Home” LOVE

Heath, the boy who led me into the wonderful heartbreaking yet amazing world of special needs orphans, the son of my heart, he is FINALLY HOME with his mama and papa in Texas! They arrived home today.

Once again, those sweet sweet words!
Once again, those sweet sweet words!

Heather was home already a little over a week ago but i waited till today to make an official announcement because they were both my first prayer warrior kiddos and will always always hold a special place in my heart. And i wanted them to share this day!

You won’t find a happier person today – at least in Switzerland.

Now if only my boys, Shane and Wesley, can find their forever families this Christmas, i would be over the moon! And of course, i want Jasper to find a family too.

Actually i want them all to find a family but this isn’t possible, so one at a time is how it will have to be.

Please dear God, bring my precious boys forever families this Christmas – it would be an out-of-this-world Christmas gift. Amen!


Thank You So Much…New Target…

i would be greatly remiss to not say a huge THANK YOU to the very Generous Donors who contributed to Wesley‘s adoption grant on Thursday, 15th November.

If you had read my last post, it talked about me being ill and not being able to write for Nano. Well, what it didn’t say was that being ill also stopped me from going to my ladies’ bible study where i had hoped to hand out little cards asking people to take part in the Precious One Giveaway for Wesley. i had fifty cards prepared… that’s right 50! i had also hoped to hand out the cards at another ladies’ event tomorrow, but again, being still ill, i can’t be there. And the stack of cards is sitting on my table now, staring back at me.

There is an old Chinese saying:

人 算不如天算

which generally conveys the idea that we should leave it to God. (Literal translation: People count not like God count)

Wesley thanks his generous donors for growing his fund to US$495.50. Let’s make it to the US$1000 mark!

Here i was preparing this, that and the other so that i can get people to contribute to Wesley‘s adoption grant. But God had other plans. i fell ill and had to depend on Him. And He showed what a wonderful God He is!

i decided (more God-inspired, i would say) that i needed to do personal appeal letters to my friends as we had only 2 contributions after more than 2 weeks. Maybe people were not seeing my posts.

i wrote the letters while feeling ill and sent them out while ill, praying that God will just show me the right people to send the letter to. All it took was 3 hours for God to raise US$225 for Wesley‘s fund. (It may have been faster but i checked the fund total 3 hours after i sent the letters.)

The donors did not write back to say they have donated. No one wrote back to tell me, even after i sent another letter asking them to let me know who they are so i can put them in the draw. So to those wonderful ladies (i sent to only ladies that day) who donated on 15th November, THANK YOU once again.

So this gives Wesley US$495.50 in his fund! That’s only US$4.50 away from the target we started with at the end of October.

Now i have become bold, encouraged by such generosity. My new target is to get Wesley‘s fund over the US$1000 mark. Yep, in 17 days, i hope and pray that we would be able to raise US$504.50. more for Wesley.

Please do consider donating to Wesley‘s adoption fund. Click here to find out more about the Precious One Giveaway. Click here or on his picture/name to go to Wesley‘s profile page to donate.

Please partner with me, help me to spread the word about Wesley and this Giveaway. i will be sending out a second appeal letter various other people (it maybe you…) and praying God moves their hearts to help Wesley grow his fund.

Do continue to pray for Wesley; his daily needs and for his forever family to find him.

Thank you so much.


Heather Has A Family!!!

i had not been on my computer much today… it was a full day so i only checked a little here and there. i only started checking and catching up on emails after my son was in bed. So many emails in just one day!

Anyhow, i finished the emails and reading some blogs and also posting on my own blog. Then i decided i need to check in on my Facebook notifications. And there they were, multiple people had tagged me, all from the Reece’s Rainbow groups.

i saw the sweetest phrase a prayer warrior for an orphan can wish to see…

“Heather on MFFM.” (My Family Found Me page on Reece’s Rainbow)

Jumping for joy – Heather’s family found her!

i teared and sighed happily, thanked the Good Lord above and proceeded to thank everyone and freak out all over the Reece’s Rainbow groups pages.

i have been praying for Heather since the end of February this year and i have been sad for her that she received so little notice and her adoption grant was really low. i prayed and prayed. The Sunday School and i, under God’s leading, did a fundraising event for both Heather and Heath. i continued to pray.

i did 4 special birthday posts for her this month, hoping and praying her family would find her. (See here, here, here and here.) (PS: i know it was not my posts which brought her family to her but it is God.)

i was disappointed when Heather didn’t get voted in to be on Angel Tree for the Christmas Warrior program. In the process of voting for all the other kids, God has been tugging at my heart to pray for more kids, in particular one little guy. But i said to God, “Let me pray these 2 home first.”.

Of course, God knows best. He already knew Heather’s family and had planned for them to come for her at this time. He is the one who is in control, always. And i Thank God He is.

Trista is getting adopted by the same family too. Heather’s sister!

Heather’s family is also adopting another little girl so she will have a sister to play with. i’m waiting to hear if i can get in touch with the family and support them in their journey to bring Heather home. i’ll let you know once i know. In the meantime, meet Heather’s sister, Trista.

Praying their journey to bring home Trista and Heather will be smooth and quick.

Thank you all for caring and praying for my lovely Heather who now has a family coming for her.

Now i’m off to bed, with a smile so big and wide, i am giving the Cheshire Cat a run for his money 😉
