Sadie's Prayer

This weekend I was having my daily skype conversation with Chad and the kids.  As usual Sadie asked me when I was coming home with her sisters.  My answer is typically "just a few more night nights."  Sadie measures her time in how many times she must sleep before something happens.  I love it and it is just one of those precious little things about her.  She informed that she had been praying everyday for the paperwork to get done so I can bring her sisters home.  And then she blessed my heart.
Right there on skype she bowed her head, closed her eyes, and began to pray for me and the girls.  She prayed in the sweetest voice and with the most precious words.  I do not even think she really understands "paperwork" but she prayed her heart out for ours to get completed.  I loved every bit of it.  Chad and I just sat in awe and got a bit tearey eyed over hearing our little girl pray such a grown up prayer.

This week has big potential for us.  The details of this I unfortunately can not disclose to you, don't feel left out, very few people truely understand all that is happening.  However, prayer is definitely needed.  Please specifically pray for the hearts of a few Ugandans who will have the opportunity this week to move our case forward.  I do not know when this meeting will happen so please lift our case up this week.
Thank you


  1. Will continue to pray for you and the twins. Will also be praying as you asked in this post.

  2. I heard her pray this several times last week, and it brought tears to my eyes every time. She is so ready for her sisters to get home. I can see her shutting them in her room and not letting them out just like she does to Sookie! Love you, Steph

  3. praying that God's will be done in Uganda as it is in heaven. cuz what God wants, God gets!
    stay strong!

  4. I'll be praying even more specifically this week...and will you please let me know if a fast is needed...because I'm's time for you to come home! Blessings, Holly...I've been inspired as I've "watched" you cope joyfully with your situation.

  5. We met at Ellen's B and B while in Kampala. I was there with Carrie and our little Brynn. I will continue to life you and the girls up in prayer. You are in my heart. gg

  6. Praying, praying, praying my friend.
