Please join us in prayer. To make a long story short, there is a little baby boy named Jack at an orphanage in the city that has sickle cell disease--just like our Elyssa. Another little baby boy in the same orphanage died of sickle cell today and I am afraid Jack will die soon too if we do not bring him home. An orphanage is a horrible place for any child, but for a sickler it is a death sentence (with all the exposure to sickness and disease). I have been texting with the director and she would like me to call her first thing Monday morning. If the Lord gives us the go ahead then we may be bringing a baby home to die, but atleast he will get to experience the love of a family and the love of Christ. Or we will get to see the Lord work another miracle and bring "life from death." I will keep you posted.
