See a fellow adoptive friends blog post below about sweet Esther, Angi
remember esther? the little girl that i posted about on monday. the one
that lexie loves like a mama, but knew she wasn't her mama.
despite 'just' being a teenager and despite being busy
with college orientation & life--she took that love and did something with it.
she advocated to find who esther's family might be.
ESTHER HAS A FAMILY!
meet Tammy and her beautiful family.
they are whole-heartedly in love with this precious treasure waiting on the
other side of the world and are working through the steps necessary to be her family!
here are some thoughts from Tammy:
I always knew that I had children in Africa but I didn't know who or when...and even though I was on a path to Ethiopia, God tugged at my heart the minute I read Love's blog post about a young girl named Lexie who was fighting for this precious little girl named Esther. I wept reading about her life and looking at her picture and I began seeking Him for guidance and after a sleepless night and constant prayer...I began getting support and encouragement from all over the world and it made me feel like a proud "Mommy" just to hear just how many people loved Esther! Before I knew it, I was falling in love with her and saying things to other people like, "I can't get there fast enough"...or "I just want to hold her right now"....and then I began asking God to whisper to her that I AM COMING...that its HER TURN...and that I would be her Mommy and that she would have a DADDY and LOTS OF SIBLINGS that already love her...and that her pain will soon be over"....and in the crazy 24 hrs, I talked to about 10 people that love Esther, scheduled a home study, and received hundreds of responses from other orphan loving Godly friends offering love and prayers for MY LITTLE GIRL:) I became Esther's Momma overnight...all by the Holy Spirit working through people that love her...and because of Jesus and those women - I now love her:)
thank you to everyone that prayed and spread the word about esther! you are
part of her story whether anyone else knows it or not. if anyone would like to
help bring esther home to her family, they are going to have to raise this money
much quicker than what their original 'plan' of adopting in a couple years was.
but, we get the blessing of being able to come alongside them to help!
basically you donate $10 on the sidebar of their blog HERE & for every $10 donation,
they will write your name on the back of a 500 piece puzzle. the puzzle
is a beautiful African scene & it will be a tangible reminder of how God literally uses
hundreds [and thousands?!] of people to piece His journey for us together.
let's allow ourselves to be used to bless this family's love and obedience....
He sets the lonely in families. Psalm 68:6a
Thank you God for answered prayers, Angi
