Beautiful Life

Hey child up and go; A big world is out there waiting for us to live in every day. Outside you will find, there is love all around you; Takes you, makes you wanna' say; That it's a beautiful life and it's a beautiful world and it's a beautiful time to be here, to be here, to be here. -Fisher

The Power of Prayer

It can save marriages and lives. It can heal the body and the soul. It can move mountains and part seas. Six months ago, I watched as it joined nine small children with their forever families. I watched as children in need of love, attention and in some cases, medical attention, were scooped up and given just that. The power of prayer is what brought our own little girl home. It's what gave us hope for her future and it's what has made this possible!

Everyday she gets a little stronger and everyday brings new promise. This is a child that China thought would never walk! Thank you to all the wonderful people that include her in their daily prayers....this would not be possible without those prayers!

Meet me over at the Wednesday Prayer Meetin' if you have any prayer requests or feel the need to pray for others!

Lurker here, Heather BT at, and I just was praising God with tears of Joy in my eyes. What a miracle, and what hard work and determination on her part.

Go Claire, go! I love listening to her little voice as much as watching her walk.

Oh my goodness that is fantastic!
I found you from the No Hands But Ours site...we were looking at a waiting child with possible spina bifida but it looks like for now, the Lord has closed the door.
Your daughter is so very precious and I know you are so blessed to be her Mama. Loved the first birthday pictures. Our son had his third birthday just a few short weeks ago and it was the first one that he understood. His first birthday with us was his 2nd but he had only been home 2.5 months and it was too overwhelming for him. He is on the NHBO site under families- his name is Josiah and he is pictured at the piano.
Thank you for linking up with NHBO- may the Lord use this as a way to bring many more families to the miracle of special needs adoptions.
