Please Pray for this Family...


I received an e-mail yesterday from Laura/Lala about this family and my eyes just filled with tears when I read about their situation. I have seen many of you post about this and I had to do the same. Their blog has gone private, so you most likely can't read it yourself. This family went to China to bring their daughter Susannah home and found out that she is in the hospital in very serious condition. I know that they were trying to reach Amanda at Starfish for assistance. I was able to talk with Amanda last night and she was aware of this family and their situation and believed that they have her phone number. She had not spoken with them yet as of late last night.
This is a Christian family and they are calling out to God for help. They want to seek treatment for their child but cannot remove her from the hospital she is in until their adoption is completed. They are working both in the United States and China to get their paperwork expedited and it sounds like they are having some success.
Please pray for this family. Please pray for this child, that she can hold on until her family can get her the treatment she needs. Please pray for strength for these parents. Please pray for this baby girl's nanny who hasn't left her side in days. Please pray that everyone who touches the paperwork necessary to complete her adoption feels a sense of urgency.
If anyone hears of any updates, please let me know. This family is on my heart. I had seen so many of your comments on their blog. I have seen the power of prayer with this group. I am hoping and praying for a miracle.

I'm glad to hear that they took their blog private. They deserve privacy at this time, as does their daughter. I know that people will continue to pray for them. I do hope that we receive an update at some point so that we know how to pray for them in the coming weeks. But, regardless, the Lord knows their needs.

Hi Kimberley,

This family is weighing heavy on my heart as well. I can't even imagine. This baby girl needs a miracle and I do believe in miracles!!!

This tugs at my heart too....someone has to know someone in China that can help them! This is just an awful situation. Do you know what area they are in?

Seems like they could at least get another doctor in there, or request to be moved to another hospital..........I am praying!!!!

Prayers are sent to this family and little one. How Heartbreaking for them. With wishes that she turns the corner and receives the help she so needs. The family must be in so much pain to see their little one like this. Much love being sent also.. Linda
