Please Be in Prayer...

for two HHBC families who are currently overseas for their adoptions.

The Luseys are in Tomsk, Russia finalizing their adoption of Artyom.  This sweet boy has some medical issues that need immediate care in the U.S., so please be praying that the judge in the case waives the 30-day waiting period that normally applies to adoptions in Russia and they can bring Artyom home as soon as possible.  For more information on their situation, visit their blog:

The Winters will welcome their daughter, Ruthie, home from Ethiopia tomorrow!  Rebecca has been in Ethiopia since last week and officially took custody of Ruthie on Monday.  Please pray for a smooth transition and sweet family time for the Winters as they get used to being a family of four.

God is SO good and has shown Himself in amazing ways for both of these families over the past several months!

Great Open Adoption Video!

Here is a great video from our friends at Deaconess Pregnancy and Adoption Services about open adoption.

Isn't it amazing how God brings families together through adoption?

Have a great weekend!

Blessed by Adoption

The saying, "A picture is worth a thousand words" is certainly applicable to our waiting moms group.

We took some time during the holidays to celebrate how God has blessed our families.  All but two of these babies arrived and met their forever families during 2011...and there are even more who aren't pictured!

If you are considering adoption or already in the process and waiting for your child, please join us!  We meet every Monday 7:30 p.m. at All About Cha near 33rd and Broadway.
