This Family Needs Us All To Pray NOW !!!


This is my friend Suzanne's friend, who is adopting from Guatemala. As we all know the adoption situation in Guatemala isn't going well. The current President is prohibiting all international adoption. That leaves 5,000 families without their children. The Wheeler family just found out today that the little girl they were trying to adopt had her court date and the birth mother showed up and isn't from Guatemala and had originally tried to sell her. She ended up in the orphanage with fabulous missionaries which is where the Wheeler family saw her. They have made trips to visit her, started all the paperwork and in their heart this is their child. Please pray for them and for a miracle.

You make check out their site and story at wheelerjourney.blogspot.com

We all know the journey to adoption is spiritual, emotional, and physical, and very close to God's heart. Let's stand together and in the gap for this family as they take this journey.

Thanks for sharing this information with us about the Wheelers. I have sent the information on to all the middle school faculty since we consider Lindsey one of our own. Still praying for you as well.
