Prayers Needed, This post rated PG13ish

I wanted to write this post last night but it would have gotten an R rating for language. I've prayed and slept and composed myself a bit. On Sunday we were rejoicing because The Abell's had reached their goal of 1500.00 and could switch agencies. This move was being done to hopefully be in better hands and get Olga home faster. Some complications have arisen and the switch isn't going as smoothly as it should.

I am asking for all the prayer warriors to please come together in prayer. We who know and love and trust The Abell's are aware of how much they love Olga, we know she will be in good loving and capable hands once she is home.

Please pray that Jesus will open a door(and put a freakin door stop in it) for them.

Please pray that He will protect them from people who are less than kind.

Please pray that the professionals they come in contact with during this adoption help them to bring Olga home. There's nothing more painful than being Discouraged by the people who you are paying to help you.

Please pray that The Abell's will be surrounded by true friends who have nothing but the best intentions.

And finally...

if you are judging STOP IT! IT's not your freaking job. IF you are thinking God made a mistake, DON'T, HE doesn't! If you are thinking this adoption is taking too long, they must be the wrong parents, WRONG AGAIN. The Abell's are trying to make this happen with the smallest support group I have ever seen. I wonder why? Where did everyone go?

And if you are sitting there reading this with a smug look on your face, just waiting for this adoption to come crashing down, SHAME ON YOU!

Whatever comes of this adoption, know that it is God's will and God's will only! Nothing you or I say or do, either in favor or in opposition of this adoption will change the will of God! Let's not hand out power like that to ourselves.

And just in case you are new here and don't yet know the beautiful Abell family, here is where you can find them.

Praying for any decisions the Albell's need to make, and that the road blocks are removed from their path.

I just spent the past half hour reading their blog and getting caught up on all that has been going on with them. I feel so bad that they are being judged. I can't figure out why either :( It's not like Olga is the first child from her country that we have been waiting FOREVER to come home. It is just the way it is. And I would like to see anyone else come up with $30,000 just like that....heck, I don't know if I could EVER save up that kind of money on my own. You are such an awesome advocate for them Steph...and that is why I Love You!!!
