Please...pray!



Tonight we are leaving to Tampa for Anna Grace's surgery that will be tomorrow morning at 7:00 a.m. The doctors at Shriner's Hospital will be correcting her syndactyly of her right hand. She will be then put in a cast that she will be wearing 4-6 weeks.

I ask you to please join me in prayer as I lift up our little girl to our Savior. May He guide the surgeons hands so that every vein, every vessel, every piece of tissue that needs to be moved will be done so with guidance and wisdom from our Lord. May our Blessed Mother hold her and allow her to feel the warmth of a mother as I continue to pray that this be the last step towards our bonding. May my beautiful daughter see my love for her and know in her heart that she will never be abandoned again. May her heart be filled with peace knowing that she has a family forever and her fears of losing us will cease. We also pray that her physical pain be minimal and that she will soon be laughing and playing with her siblings. Lastly, we pray that the surgery be completely successful allowing her to have full and complete use of her little hand.

I will be taking my laptop and posting from the hotel tonight and hopefully after surgery tomorrow if I can get internet access at the hospital. Although I feel a huge sense of peace in my heart that all will be well, your prayers are so very appreciated.

Also, please continue to pray for our country, for the unborn and mostly for whatever the outcome of this election is, that it may be used to glorify our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We pray that the hearts of those entering the voting booths tomorrow be filled with His mighty Spirit and be reminded of the sacrifice He made for us on that cross. Let us honor Him in all we do and say, but mostly in our actions by continuing to unite in His precious name as we protect his unborn children.

May God bless you for keeping our family in your prayers during Anna Grace's surgery and recovery and may American bless God, always!
