Come Home Soon

Dearest friends,

Today I am writing with a very special and heartfelt wish. As most of you know for the last eight months my family and I have been waiting to bring home Noodle from the only home she has ever known. This journey has been long and unfortunately not over yet. However we believe we are closer now then we ever have been. We are not alone in this. What some of you do not know is that Noodle is only one of over 60 children who have been waiting in orphanages for the restructuring of International Adoptions. We have done everything we can do, contacted some very important people in high places. Our government is doing all they can to advocate for us as families and for the children waiting. What is left? The power of numbers! The power of prayer, good thoughts, mojo, juju. Whatever it is that you believe in. My personal choice PRAYERS..... God has the ability to move mountains. In his time we know all the kids will come home. We have spent months sending up our prayers to God, saints and guardian angels. Now we would like our friends, and our friends friends, and friends friends friends to join us as we pray that we are coming into the home stretch. That our children will be in our arms soon. We also pray for the children who will be left behind, those who are advocating for their welfare, and for those hoping to make their lives better. I have become involved with many of those who are making a difference in the lives of the people of Kyrgyzstan. Anyone interested in more information about that can email me privately or visit my blog. Thank you to everyone in advance. We need the Power to move mountains on our side.

Ann and Brian

Come Home Soon

On this side of the ocean
Many families wait

Our children unbeknownst to them
Have Mom's and Dad's and friends

We love them, miss them
want them home

The wait has been eternal
But we know the day will come

They will be reunited
And will never ever again be alone!!!

Dear Ones,

I cannot imagine the tug on your hearts as you wait. If we can do anything, please let us know. However, our prayer is that you are there when we are there....and the reason is for completion of the journey...the child in your arms once and for all!

God has a perfect plan - it is time!
