What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising

LynnMarie

Michael and I made a change in our adoption plans this week. We sent in our medical checklist for a child with special needs. Although there is no guarantee, there is chance that LynnMarie will be home earlier than expected. More on that over at the family blog.

So like I was talking about at the adoption blog, I prayed over the application and started thinking. Praying specifically for LynnMarie is the greatest thing we can do for her besides making sure we are doing what we can during this wait to make sure we are the best parents for her.

I remember as a child, my mom prayed out loud, A LOT. It got on our nerves and to be honestly I am sure we all rolled our eyes when mom prayed. As a child, I grew up in the church and prayer a lot, but not to the extent that mom did. I feel guilty. My mom loved us so much, that she went to God several times a day lifting us up to him. What an amazing gift from an amazing woman. I really never spent time thinking of all the things my mom did for me. She is a prayer warrior. my mom might talk more than I do, which means she probably gets on peoples nerves but she does not care.

My mom taught me how to pray. She told me to share my heart with God and not to hold anything back. I did not understand for a long time. Its such an honor and privilege to talk to our creator. Its hard to understand why we even pray when God already knows our hearts and I can not explain it. I just have a total peace that can not be explained. I can not wait to pray for our daughter daily.

Wanna pray for LynnMarie, Michael and I? It would be appreciated!!!!

Absolutely I'm praying for you! Your Mom's prayers were certainly important then...but just think of the lasting impact that act had on you. It's still making a difference today.

Hugs,

Susan

Congrats on the new development! We looked a lot into a special needs China adoption. It isn't right for us at the moment, but it is a small dream of mine! Have fun!!!
